Pink Floyd Founder Roger Waters Dropped by Music Rights Company Over His Comments About Israel

Why are these people above criticism?

Seriously, is that not a valid question?

Because of the Holocaust?

How long does that last for? If they became above criticism because of the Holocaust, surely there must be an expiry date?

They can’t just be totally immune from critique forever, and just allowed to control everything and kill whoever they want until the end of time.

The Guardian:

The music rights company BMG is parting ways with the Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters over comments he made about Israel, Ukraine and the United States, Variety reported on Monday.

The Germany-based company had signed a publishing agreement with the 80-year-old musician in 2016 and was scheduled to release a newly recorded version of Pink Floyd’s 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon last year, but ultimately scrapped the release upon the hiring of Thomas Coesfeld as CEO. The re-recording was ultimately released by the UK-based record label Cooking Vinyl.

The split, unusual for a major publishing deal, is the latest fallout from Waters’ increasingly divisive rhetoric over Israel, which some have criticized as being antisemitic in recent months.
