Pink Floyd star David Gilmour and his wife Polly Samson step up the long-running feud with former bandmate Roger Waters with a scathing attack on Twitter.

Samson, an acclaimed novelist, tweets at Rogers: “You are antisemitic to your rotten core. Also a Putin apologist and a lying, thieving, hypocritical, tax-avoiding, lip-synching, misogynistic, sick-with-envy, megalomaniac. Enough of your nonsense.”

Gilmour then retweets her, saying “Every word demonstrably true.”

The post apparently comes after Waters, long known for his antisemitism and anti-Israel activism, gave an interview in which he expressed support for Russian President Vladimir Putin, said it was “really sad” his former bandmates had recorded a song in support of Ukraine, and reiterated his comparisons between Israel and Nazi Germany.

Waters later posts on Instagram that he is “aware of the incendiary and wildly inaccurate comments” posted by Samson and is looking at taking legal action.
