Eddie Vedder gets in a jam with anti-war rant

MILTON KEYNES, ENGLAND – Eddie Vedder, the lead singer of Pearl Jam, got himself into a jam at a recent concert in England. In the middle of a song, Vedder went off on a lengthy anti-war rant that has some fans furious.

“They’re looking for a reason to go across borders and take over land that doesn’t belong to them,” he said. “They should get the [expletive] out and mind their own [expletive] business.”

Vedder didn’t name any specific countries in his tirade, but Israeli media is calling out the singer. The Jerusalem Post labeled it an “anti-Israel diatribe,” and Israeli Twitter users are slamming the rocker as “anti-Semitic,” among other unrepeatable things.

Vedder isn’t the only celebrity to jump into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Rihanna and Houston Rockets star center Dwight Howard tweeted “#freepalestine,” which they apparently later regretted because both deleted the tweets.

Celebrities take note because it  turns out being famous doesn’t necessarily mean you’re qualified to debate international politics.
