Adam Sandler said Tuesday that he’s “disgusted” by supporters of the boycott Israel movement, specifically Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters.

Appearing Tuesday on Howard Stern’s Sirius satellite radio show, Mr. Sandler went off on the BDS movement, which seeks to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel, The Jewish Journal reported.

“I’m disgusted they single out Israel,” the Jewish filmmaker told Mr. Stern, also a Jew, who has ranted against Mr. Waters several times himself.

“I’m proud of being a Jew and that’s what I am,” Mr. Sandler said. “I get that from my father and mother.”

“I’m very pro-Israel and when someone says s– about Israel, and I know people say s– about Israel and they f–ing won’t play there… and when you go off on Roger Waters I love that you do that,” he told Mr. Stern. “All these f–ing nice Israeli people are getting a ‘f– you’ from Roger Waters.”

“The Ridiculous Six” director added that he’s not “crazy religious,” but is still proud of his upbringing.

In October, Mr. Stern blasted Mr. Waters, an outspoken BDS supporter, in a seven-minute rant, prompted by an open letter Mr. Waters published in Salon criticizing rocker Jon Bon Jovi for performing in Tel Aviv in October, Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

“What is with Roger Waters and the Jews?” Mr. Stern asked at the time. “Where do you want the Jews to go, Roger? You want them just to go back to the concentration camps? What is it you want, f–khead?”
