Roger Waters faces backlash and possible legal action after donning a Nazi-inspired costume during his May 17 parade in Berlin, Germany.

The Pink Floyd musician is under investigation by police after wearing an SS-style uniform during a performance of the song “In The Flesh” at the Mercedes-Benz Arena last week.

Although Waters has long claimed that he uses fascist-inspired imagery as criticism, evoking Nazi symbols or gestures is a crime in Germany.

Playing the villain of Floyd’s 1982 film “Wall,” Waters appeared on stage wearing sunglasses, a swastika-inspired bracelet, and a fake rifle. However, instead of the symbol of the Third Reich was a pair of crossed hammers.

As an inflatable pig festooned with fascist-looking graffiti and a Star of David floated above the crowd, stadium screens flashed the names of Holocaust victims. Anna Frank; Masha Amini, a woman who died after being detained by Iran’s “morality police” last September; george Floyd, who was killed by Minneapolis police in May 2020; and Shireen Abu Akleh, a Palestinian-American journalist who was killed while covering violence in the West Bank earlier this month.

waters, a long time Israel critic and a supporter of the BDS movement, was shout for his show on the nation’s official Twitter account on Thursday.

The account shared footage of the concert and wrote: “Good morning to everyone except Roger Waters who spent the night in Berlin (Yes Berlin) desecrating the memory of Anne Frank and the 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.”

After the concert, the chief inspector of the Berlin police told the media that his department had “initiated criminal investigation proceedings on suspicion of incitement” at the show.

“The context of the used clothing is considered to be capable of approving, glorifying or justifying the violent and arbitrary rule of the Nazi regime in a way that violates the dignity of the victims and therefore disturbs the public peace,” it said. Jewish news.

HuffPost has reached out to the “Wish You Were Here” rocker’s team for comment.

Waters is scheduled to play in Frankfurt, Germany on May 28, where he is almost guaranteed to use the same setup.

magistrates for the city unsuccessfully requested cancel the concert in April, calling the musician “one of the world’s best-known anti-Semites.”

A court ruled in favor of Waters, arguing that the show “does not glorify or downplay the crimes of the Nazis or identify with Nazi racist ideology.”
