Howard Stern

Radio personality

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.
