Roots drummer Questlove caused a bit of controversy for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when he chose to play Fishbone's Lyin' Ass Bitch during Michele Bachmann's walk-on song, and apparently now, he's being forced to clear every song choice with three NBC executives!

Glenn Beck Is NOT Pleased About Michele Bachmann Late Night Incident, Calls Jimmy Fallon 'A Girl'

Seriously, Glenn?!?!?!?

To recap, Jimmy Fallon's Late Night band The Roots gave an impromptu performance of Fishbone's Lyin' A*s B*tch as Michele Bachmann's intro song during her appearance on Monday's show.

After hearing about it, Glenn Beck opened up about the incident on his show (above), and he is absolutely FURIOUS about it!

While everyone's entitled to their opinion, we are disgusted with Glenn for calling Jimmy "a girl" in his arguments!

Come on, Glenn! Referring to Jimmy as a girl as if it were a negative thing???? Just awful!

What do U think about Glenn Beck's anti-Fallon tirade? Do U agree with any of his points???
