From Huffington Post:
Once the world caught on to the sly, musical message that the “Late Show With Jimmy Fallon” backing band the Roots sent to Michele Bachmann during her appearance on the show last week, reaction was swift: some laughed, Bachmann was outraged and NBC apologized.
Now, the band’s drummer and leader, Questlove, has revealed that he has been the target of a steady stream of hate speech and racial epithets from Bachmann supporters and tea party members in the wake of his band playing a few notes of “Lyin’ Ass B*tch” by Fishbone.
“I’ve seen some really colorful epithets in the past four days, but ‘n*gger f*ckhead ghetto stick’ is probably the one that takes the cake. I’m still trying to get my head around that one,” the musician told Pitchfork.com. “Blocking 3,500 tea party extremists [on Twitter] in a three day period is no fun, especially when you’re a drummer dangerously close to carpal tunnel. In the end, was it worth it? Absolutely not.”
