Roger Waters Responds To ‘Haters’ Who Tried To Limit His Freedom

In a recent speech, Roger Waters attacked those who attempted to restrict his freedom.

Waters had trouble earlier reserving a hotel in Montevideo. Two hotels declined to accommodate him because of his vocal opposition to Israel. The rock star addressed the remarks made about him during his most recent performance in Argentina, referencing the incident.

“There are people in this city who will not let me stay in a hotel. I mean, what? I just want to point out that there is a difference between the people who won’t give me a room at the inn and me. And the difference between them and me, and all the rest of the Israeli lobby, by the way, and me, the difference is I believe in universal human rights. To all my brothers and sisters, all over the world, in respect of their ethnicity, religion, or nationality.”

His speech was shared by a user on X, and it quickly gained popularity. After watching the video, the rock star reshared it with the following caption:

“This is the only answer.”

Waters Was Refused by Hotels

A number of hotels refused to let Waters stay because of his remarks regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict.

The rock star was supposed to play in Montevideo as part of the “This Is Not A Drill” tour, but the Hyatt Centric Hotel and the Regency chain hotels turned him down. It was unclear where he would stay, and it was not certain that he would remain in Montevideo.

On November 17, the show went on as scheduled in spite of the problems.

Waters Told the Fans to ‘F*ck Off’

Prior to this, Waters allegedly told supporters to “f*ck off” during a live performance in London, drawing criticism for his pro-Palestine views. Since it was his first live performance since the release of “Dark Side of the Moon Redux,” the audience had high expectations for the show. Waters was scheduled to play the album’s live premiere, but a good number of attendees left before any music was played.

“If you want to tell stories, tell them in your own time to your own audience in your own f*cking theatre. By the way, if you can show constraint and stop shouting again. F*ck off.”

Even though the show happened, fewer people showed up than anticipated.

Below is a video of Waters’ most recent speech.
