Soon after Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters penned an open letter urging musicians to boycott Israel, the country’s best-known supermodel demanded he stop using her image in his shows.

“Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows. If you’re boycotting — go all the way,” Bar Refaeli tweeted to her 500,000 followers in Hebrew on Wednesday, the Blaze reported.

In 2011, Ms. Refaeli once said she was “honored” to be featured in Waters’ concerts.

Mr. Waters addressed “colleagues in rock and roll” on his Facebook page Aug. 18, asking them to join him “and all our brothers and sisters in global civil society in proclaiming our rejection of apartheid in Israel and occupied Palestine, by pledging not to perform or exhibit in Israel or accept any award or funding from any institution linked to the government of Israel, until such time as Israel complies with international law and universal principles of human rights.”
