We don’t see what the big deal is, she’s a liar isn’t she???
Questlove isn’t laughing anymore.
The bandleader who chose to play Fishbone’s “Lyin’ Ass B—-” as Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachman took the stage on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last week says the joke wasn’t worth all the backlash.
The musician says he’s received a slew of hate messages and racial epithets from Bachmann supporters and Tea Party members since leading house band The Roots to play the snarky song that introduced the Minnesota Congresswoman onto the show.
“I’ve seen some really colorful epithets in the past four days,” he told Pitchfork.
“Blocking 3,500 tea party extremists in a three day period is no fun, especially when you’re a drummer dangerously close to carpal tunnel,” he went on. “In the end, was it worth it? Absolutely not.”
Questlove said he never thought the song would cause so much reaction.
“It wasn’t like a chess move where you have to think 12 steps ahead,” he said. “You’re just, like, ‘F—, all right, I’m gonna do it,’ in a kamikaze-type way. And I really didn’t think about how it could be perceived as a misogynist swipe – it didn’t hit me until my [Twitter] timeline started showing up that it was seen that way.”
The afro’ed drummer went on to say:
“It deeply offended a lot of women’s groups and non-Bachmann supporters, and for that I’m deeply sorry,” he told Pitchfork. “I’m not parading like I’m the poster boy for the feminist movement, but those who truly know me know that that’s not me. I was really just going with her whole revisionist history angle, I wasn’t calling her out on being a woman.”
Man, eff that lyin’ a$$ beyotch!!!
