Citibank has refuted claims that it is a sponsor of Roger Waters‘ current tour, joining other major companies like American Express. The announcement comes as a backlash to Roger Waters’ vile vocal anti-Israel comments and support of the BDS which border on anti-semitism.

The disavowal of Waters came in response to complaints made after rumors surface that the bank was in fact one of the musician’s sponsors. Roger Waters has been calling on all musicians around the world to refuse to perform in Israel.

The pre-sale has ended and we have no plans to work with this artist in the future.”
