Jewish 100, 2015: Howard Stern – Arts and Culture
Radio shock jock Howard Stern has repeatedly called out Pink Floyd’s co-founder Roger Waters, also his Hamptons neighbor, for his pernicious support of BDS and for pressuring other entertainers not to perform in Israel.
Stern said on his show on-air that Waters “comes off like an anti-Semite,” and urged his listeners not to be “fooled” by the musician and his anti-Israel sentiments.
Others have also spoken out against Waters while on Stern’s show, including comedic actor Adam Sandler, who said he appreciates the radio host’s attacks on Waters.
Jewish actress Mayim Bialik also had words of praise for the radio giant, tweeting: “@HowardStern, let’s discuss our shared unfashionable views on Israel. Name a time. Much respect.”
