Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli tweeted in Hebrew that she no longer wants to be associated with British rocker Roger Waters after his open letter calling for a boycott of Israel.

“Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows. If you’re boycotting — go all the way,” Refaeli said Wednesday on Twitter.

Her image is among dozens beamed on the wall during Waters’ concerts.

A day before Refaeli expressed her anger on Twitter, reports of the Aug. 18 boycott letter by Waters became public.

“I write to you now, my brothers and sisters in the family of Rock and Roll, to ask you to join with me, and thousands of other artists around the world, to declare a cultural boycott on Israel,” the former Pink Floyd frontman wrote.

Waters also accused Israel of practicing apartheid and noted Stevie Wonder’s cancellation of a performance for the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces as a recent success story.

Recently he came under fire for using in his concerts a huge inflated balloon in the shape of a wild boar with a prominently visible Star of David, as well as a hammer and sickle, crosses and a dollar sign, among other symbols. Waters has used the gimmick for several years.
