Count Adam Sandler as one more person who has a problem with Roger Waters’ strong anti-Israel stance.
The Jewish funnyman appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show this week. While the sit down mostly consisted of reconciliation talk–the pair have publicly feuded for years–Sandler also took a moment to rip Waters for his constant campaign against the Jewish state.
“When you go after Roger Waters,” Sandler told Stern, “I love that you do that. I’m disgusted they single out Israel. All these f*cking nice Israeli people are getting a ‘F*ck you!’ from Roger Waters.”
“I’m not crazy religious but I’m very, like I said, where I grew up where being proud of being a Jew and that’s what I am,” Sandler said.
Waters has earned a reputation as a Zionist basher, writing letters to musicians that plan to perform in Israel. Most recently, the Pink Floyd musician tried to convince Bon Jovi to cancel a concert in Tel Aviv, a call Jon Bon Jovi rejected.
Waters is a notorious proponent of the BDS, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel.
Several times on his radio show, Stern (who is also Jewish) has taken aim at Waters, saying, “What is with Roger Waters and the Jews…Where do you want the Jews to go, Roger? You want them to go back to the concentration camps? What is it you want, f*ckhead?”
