Published Oct 24, 2017The angry folks at Fox News have made plenty of enemies over the years, but their current target is perhaps the most unexpected. Long-running UK group Radiohead are the victims of their ire, and the network's host will not stop owning them.
Last week, the network's Katherine Timpf took some cheap shots at the band's fans, noting that they're generally "strange, malnourished and sad." She added that "the music is just elaborate moaning and whining over ringtone sounds."
What made Timpf's statements sting so hard was the fact that she was strangely accurate in her description of the band. Now, host Greg Gutfeld has chimed in with some owns of his own, and they're not quite as accurate.
On the newest episode of The Greg Gutfeld Show, Gutfeld started his banter by suggesting Timpf go as one of the band's fans for Halloween. Then he said something really dumb: "Radiohead is a fine band, but they stole everything from Coldplay.... Radiohead is the poor man's Coldplay."
Though it almost doesn't even warrant a response, it's still worth noting that Gutfeld's idiotic statement makes no sense. Coldplay formed in 1996, some 11 years after Radiohead, and their lite pop is inspired by Radiohead's early work. After all, Coldplay doesn't have any "elaborate moaning and whining over ringtone sounds."
To add insult to injury, Gutfeld concluded the segment by cracking an eyeroll-worthy Nickelback joke. C'mon man, those haven't been funny in years. Let Timpf stick to the alternative music-related comedy.
