Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli has told Roger Waters, the former leader of British band Pink Floyd to stop using her image in live concerts after the band-member urged fellow musicians to boycott the Israeli state, The Telegraph reported.
Refaeli issued the order on Twitter having previously stated that she was flattered to have been displayed on the musician’s artwork.
Angered by Waters’ anti-Israeli stance, Refaeli demanded that he disassociate himself immediately and discontinue using her image as part of visual art at his concerts.
“Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows. If you’re boycotting — go all the way,” Refaeli tweeted early Wednesday in Hebrew.
Her post is retribution for Water’s open letter, first published in the Electronic Intifada, a pro-Palestinian website on Sunday, which called on other musicians to avoid playing concerts in Israel in protest against what he called its policies of “apartheid” and “ethnic cleansing.”
“I write to you now, my brothers and sisters in the family of Rock and Roll, to ask you to join with me, and thousands of other artists around the world, to declare a cultural boycott on Israel,” wrote Waters, an active member of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that campaigns to isolate Israel internationally.
Waters call for a boycott of Israel joins that of other famous British musicians such as Annie Lennox and Elvis Costello and American singer Stevie Wonder who canceled a fundraising concert for the Israeli Defence Forces in 2012.
