Westboro Baptist Church Call Radiohead ‘Freak Monkeys’

Written by John Ritchie on March 13, 2012

Westboro Baptist Church members decided to picket a Radiohead show in Kansas City yesterday calling the band “Freak monkeys with mediocre tunes.”

According to the National Post, the picketers held signs printed with the slogans “You’re going to Hell” and “God Hates Fags.”

Radiohead’s producer, Nichel Godrich, responded to the protestors via Twitter:
