Pink Floyd fans booed Roger Waters at a concert in New Orleans over the weekend after the rocker displayed several profane images meant to degrade President Donald Trump on the giant screens behind him.

While Waters performed “Pigs (Three Different Ones),” several images were displayed for fans to see, according to the New Orleans Advocate. Concertgoers were shown images of Trump as a baby, another of the president being held by Russian President Vladimir Putin, one of Trump wearing a KKK hood, and another image of a naked Trump with a small penis. The images ended with the words “Trump is a pig” on the screens, as a giant pig floated over the audience.

Fans booed the politically-charged performance, while several others may have walked out on the show, the Advocate reported.

The former Pink Floyd bassist’s Houston, Texas, show saw a similar reaction from fans, with some blasting the performance’s overtly political tone, according to WBRZ.

The U.K.-born bassist has long been a vocal opponent of President Trump.

A week before Americans went to the polls in November, Waters compared then-candidate Trump’s political rise to that of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.

“It was insidious in Germany in the 30s when National Socialism came. And National Trumpism feels a bit less insidious, but it’s just as dangerous,” Waters said during an interview on WTF With Marc Maron.

The rocker has also regularly attacked Trump during his concert performances.

Last October, Waters slammed Trump during a politically-charged performance at the Desert Trip music festival in Indio, California.

While Waters sang lyrics from Pink Floyd’s 1977 hit “Pigs (Three Different Ones).” images of Trump in a KKK hood, holding a Nazi salute, and holding a giant sex toy like a rifle flashed across the screen.

Waters is currently on the U.S. leg of his “Us + Them” tour.
