Roots Welcome Bachmann With ‘Lyin’ As* Beyotch’ On Fallon
On the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show, US Rep Michele Bachmaan showed up as a guest while the house band, The Roots decided to show how they felt about her through song.
Questlove tweeted, “aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title.”
That title was “Lyin’ A$$ B**ch” by Fishbone. Of course they didn’t play the lyrics but the beat and bridge were recognizable.
Since then Jimmy has publicly “grounded” Questlove for the song choice and took to Twitter to apologize to Michele.
“I’m honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I’m so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back.”
Questlove issued a statement saying, “The performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision. The show was not aware of it and I feel bad if her feelings were hurt. That was not my intention.”
