Major League Baseball Dumps Major League BDS-hole Roger Waters

5315

Some good news to start the week.

Major League Baseball will not schedule any more advertising on its platforms promoting music artist Roger Waters.

The leadership of the Jewish advocacy organization B’nai B’rith International sent a letter to baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred last month criticizing the sport’s involvement in ticket sales for Waters’ “This is Not a Drill” tour. MLB.com was among the organizations sponsoring ticket presales.

B’nai B’rith President Charles O. Kaufman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin said Waters’ views on Jews and Israel “far exceed the boundaries of civil discourse.”

B’nai B’rith said in a statement Friday that MLB told it “there are no plans to schedule any more ads on the MLB platforms.” MLB later confirmed B’nai B’rith’s statement was accurate.

MLB has said the promotion was part of an ad buy by AEG/Concerts West for multiple concert tours.

Waters’ spokeswoman, Fran Curtis, did not immediately return a request for comment.

I can’t imagine why MLB would agree to this – Roger seems like such a nice guy.
