Foul-mouthed shock-jock Howard Stern took aim at singer Lorde this week for cancelling an upcoming show in Israel amid mounting pressure by supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS, which aims to economically isolate the Jewish State.
Stern, an ardent supporter of Israel and constant critic of musicians who refuse to take the stage there, called Lorde a "shithead" on his Sirius XM radio show, claiming the singer likely has a problem with Jewish people.
Stern also has dumped on Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters for his vocal criticism of Israel and effort to get various artists to cancel concerts there.
"She has no problem with Russia," Stern was quoted as saying during his show. "The only place in the world where she can’t play is Israel. So what do you think’s going on? What’s the one thing about Israel that’s different than all other places. There’s Jews there … I hope Lorde has a good time in Russia."
"Anti-Semitism is on the rise. I’m so fucking sick of it," Stern said, before taking aim at the 21-year-old singer.
"Fuck her. One hit song this girls’ living off of," Stern said in response to reports of Lorde cancelling the show.
