    As much as I don't like her it was incredibly disrespectful and you should NEVER call a woman a bitch. Come on Perez I know you don't like her but I thought you would have thought about Feminism seeming as you care about gay rights so much. Please just stop posting politics on your site no one wants to read your opinions

    Of course he was in on it, he's the boss. And Questlove tweeted about it b4 hand.

    Yes, it was more than rude. I can't stand her, but you don't do that to your guest.



  4. 4

    Even if you don't approve of someone's policies, you still must show respect when they are a guest. You don't have to like her/him but you must show civility when you are in the media. That means you too, Perez.

    What kind of tirade would you be on right now if someone had the gall to do that to Michelle Obama? I think we all know that answer. I don't like the woman either, but that was extremely disrespectful.

    Come on now. I don't care for her or most of her political ideals, but she certainly doesn't deserve to be treated disrespectfully on national tv. If this had been a liberal woman running for office it NEVER would have happened in the first place.
    That was passive-aggressive bullying.
    I adore Jimmy Fallon and his show, but as a woman…this was very disappointing to me.

    Our media is a joke in other countries. This is a perfect example of why. My mom was a reporter and it saddens me when I see how integrity and just plain decency is so sorely lacking among journalists today. True, Fallon isn't exactly a journalist but he is on tv, spreading the hate message.

    Personal beliefs and politics aside, no one in media/entertainment should make fun of others.

    Differing from someone's political and/or religious views is not an excuse to act like a classless d-bag. Bachmann's a person too, dagnabit, and think about what it would feel like to walk out onto a nighttime talk show probably knowing that most people don't like you and then have a song like that play when you're walking out. I don't agree with her politics, but I wasn't raised by wild dogs.

    I completely loathe this woman but am amazed at this treatment. Nascar fans shouldn't boo Mrs Obama and National TV personalities shouldn't participate in this sort of disrespect either. I may not be a Republican but I am quite disappointed in Perez, the champion for anti-bullying and all the belittling and disrespectful remarks Perez lays on anyone who has a view other than his politically. Bullying due to gender, race, sexual orientation or political viewpoints isn't right. You don't have to agree but you don't have to assault personally.

    Tweeting so everyone knew was even more disrespectful than playing the stupid song that most ppl probably didn't know. I can't stand this chick, but don't invite her to your show just to act like like a bunch of middle school girls talking behind her back. Then the idiot tweets as in, "oooh, look what I did", like he's all proud of himself. Grow up A-hole.

    Well, it's not really Perez doing the talking. It's probably some intern hes hired. I bet Perez is barely on this website anymore. But still, this was totally wrong. I don't like Michelle Bachmann, but that was not funny. I'm deff not tuning in to Jimmy Fallon (even tho I never watch the show cause its not funny).

    the band is getting heat???? f**** this shit! I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW WE SHOULD PAY ANY RESPECT FOR THIS F888 MORON WHO WOULD INSTALL A THEOCRACY IN THE COUNTRY AND LOWER THE TAXES TO CORPORATIONS TO "ZEEEEEERO" WHILE THE REST OF THE F88888 POPULATION IS STARVING!!!!! F888 HER! SHE NEEDS TO RECEIVE SOME HEAT! SPECIALLY FROM A FIRE, AND SPECIALLY IF SHE'S ON THE TOP OF IT!!! HOPE SHE GETS SHOT!

    It's called RESPECT — regardless of her religious or political views, she is a woman & a member of Congress! Respect is definitely a trait parents are not instilling in their offspring. Pity the future America . . . Jimmy Fallon is an NBC-boob

    It seems like Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year! Start making extra cash NOW with online paid surveys. I made about $400 last month just by taking online paid surveys! Go to yourtoppaidsurveys.weebly.com and see how much you can make!

    SHAME ON YOU PEREZ! You pretend that you have cleaned up your act, and no longer bully celebs on your site….but a wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf!!! If you plan on using your celeb status to help those that are bullied, than do not attempt to due it half-hearted! Jimmy Fallon and Quest Love seemed to be the popular kids at the high school humiliating the girl who is different in front of the entire school and still have yet to apologize sincerely. If this were a real high school situation and the girl hurt herself because of the embarrassment Jimmy "BULLY" Fallon and his cronies caused, you would be considered in the lawsuit her family files when it is all said and done. Really, perez you need to think long and hard about how you and your team will proceed from here…bully those that have different opinions from you or bully NO ONE at all??? The ball is in your court…just remember not just gay and lesbian kids look to you as an example or for support, those that are bullied due to their race, religious beliefs, political views, etc. are looking to you as well and right now, they are probably pretty discouraged….do not make your choice lightly!

    Lie with dogs, you get fleas. Truth hurts, and she is a lyin' ass bitch.

    Re: Alexima – B-b-b-BINGO!! Why does this woman deserve 'respect' and cowardice anti bullying PC thug bullshit when her politics are ROOTED in disrespect intolerance bigotry and homophobia and favorable only to the wealthy. She, like any republican, will burn our country to the ground and destroy the middle class

    I can't STAND people who bitch n bitch about the economy and struggling and beings or but u go and vote republican! They r NOT on ur side. They cater to the wealthy open ur eyes they don't necessarily hide it that well

    She deserves an apology just as Wii-I-Am deserves one Right FatHead.

    Re: Flyspy74 – As a woman, I 100% agree!

    Re: Alexima – Calm down and hit the shift button to take the caps lock off!! It is called Prozac, sweetheart!!

    He apologized via Tweet????? are you eff-ing kidding me? I'm not a fan of M Bachmann's but this blatant disrespect by The Roots & Jimmy Fallon is horrible. Very poor taste indeed & certainly deserved more than a tweet as an apology.

    Here's the real question: Did Michelle Bachmann KNOW what the song was by Fishbone, or did someone have to tell her? My guess, she didn't know. A great deal of her audience doesn't know. Would she have been just as disgusted if they played the Polka, "She's too Fat For Me", or the Country song, "I'm Going to Hire a Wino to Decorate my home"? So why the apologies and hoopla? Only reason why is because she took the song as truth about HER, and therein lies the problem.
