I'm very upset by what Roger Waters did. A Jewish star doesn't belong anywhere NEAR a pig.

Roger Waters sad old anti Semitic fascist shocking to hear how low he's now stooped in his pathetic little warped mind. Dark side of the Man

And fuck you Roger Waters. Fuck you for making me regret spending half my waking hours listening to your music. Prick.

Draiman sends along a letter he wrote about Roger Waters.

Yes everyone, I am not writing this piece in CAPS. I want no one to use that as an excuse to distract from the seriousness of this message.
