Rogers wrote on Facebook.“The elements of my performance that have been questioned are quite clearly a statement in opposition to fascism, injustice, and bigotry in all its forms.

Attempts to portray those elements as something else are disingenuous and politically motivated,” he continued. “The depiction of an unhinged fascist demagogue has been a feature of my shows since Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ in 1980.”“I have spent my entire life speaking out against authoritarianism and oppression wherever I see it.

When I was a child after the war, the name of Anne Frank was often spoken in our house, she became a permanent reminder of what happens when fascism is left unchecked.

My parents fought the Nazis in World War II, with my father paying the ultimate price,” Rogers said.“Regardless of the consequences of the attacks against me, I will continue to condemn injustice and all those who perpetrate it,” the statement concludes.Rogers is under “suspicion of incitement of the people,” according to Berlin chief inspector Martin Halweg.“The context of the clothing worn is deemed capable of approving, glorifying or justifying the violent and arbitrary rule of the Nazi regime in a manner that violates the dignity of the victims and thereby disrupts public peace,” Halweg wrote.
