Do you really want to hurt Boy George, pro-Palestinian activists?

The 1980s pop legend performed in Israel Tuesday night, and before the concert, he felt the usual pressure that high-profile performers receive these days from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. Supporters of BDS pestered him on social media, urging him to cancel his scheduled performance to show solidarity with the Palestinian people.

But instead of persuading him to change his plans, the BDS push prompted George to display his affection for Israel on Twitter.

In response to someone who asked if he would have played in South Africa during the Apartheid era, the singer tweeted: “I could have an I didn’t. Could have earned well from such a gig. Israel is in my heart. Completely different equation”

The Culture Club vocalist has performed in Israel multiple times — as such, he was sartorially prepared with this two-piece getup featuring red and gold Stars of David.
