Late night funnyman Jimmy Fallon apologized Tuesday to Rep. Michele Bachmann after his band serenaded her with Fishbone’s 1985 track “Lyin’ A** B****” in her appearance on the show Monday.
Fallon was unaware the band would be playing the track; bandleader/drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson summed up his song selection about the Republican presidential hopeful as “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,” Questlove, a noted supporter of Pres. Barack Obama, said in a statement. “That was not my intention.”
Fallon later tweeted “@Questlove is grounded.”
