Israeli Supermodel Attacks Roger Waters for Using Her Photo During Shows
Roger Waters' latest Israel boycott callings and Star of David controversy caused a negative backlash from what now might be described as a former fan - supermodel Bar Refaeli. As Ultimate Classic Rock reports, Pink Floyd co-founder was using Refaeli's image in one of his background videos during live performances for quite some time. The model reportedly even saw her image during a 2011 show and felt nothing but privileged. "Crazy thing," she said back then. "Went to the Roger Waters show in Paris, and saw a pic of myself on the wall! Respect! I'm honored." But after realizing Waters' political stands, Refaeli went on to attack the musician, demanding him to take the photo off. "Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows," she tweeted in Hebrew. "If you're boycotting - go all the way." After being condemned by Jewish human rights group for placing the star of Star of David on the inflatable pig during his performances, Waters explained his actions and political opinions in a lengthy Facebook post. "Like it or not, the Star of David represents Israel and its policies and is legitimately subject to any and all forms of non violent protest," he stated. "To peacefully protest against Israel's racist domestic and foreign policies is not anti-semitic. Your contention that because I criticize the Policies of the Israeli government I should be lumped in with the Muslim Brotherhood is risible, and again a personal affront. I have spent my whole adult life advocating separation of church and state."
