Kat Timpf, a Fox News contributor and writer for National Review, referred to fans of Radiohead as, “strange, malnourished, and sad”. She also said Radiohead’s music is, “Just elaborate moaning and whining over ring tone sounds.”
Here’s the full quote –
Seeing as it’s about fame and not talent, I think that Radiohead’s definitely going to get in, and should get in. I don’t even like them, but the kind of guys that I like have to be three things: strange, malnourished, and sad. And those guys always like Radiohead! So I’ve been having to pretend to like Radiohead for years to get these men even though the music is just elaborate moaning and whining over ring tone sounds and you know what, if that’s not fame and power that will get me to do that for someone else then I don’t know what is.
This resulted in almost immediate backlash from Radiohead fans on Twitter. Timpf defended her comments as, “self deprecating humor.” However that didn’t cut it for Radiohead fans.
I made a self-deprecating joke on a comedy show about the men I like to date & now have an entire fandom after me & it’s just the most 2017

Now Gutfeld is just trolling. During a new segment in which Timpf addressed the backlash from her comments, Gutfeld described Radiohead as “the poor man’s Coldplay” and said Thom Yorke’s band stole everything from Chris Martin and company. He’s obviously joking, but also, the joke makes no sense. Watch below.
Gutfeld also proceeded to call into Fox News Radio while Timpf was hosting, pretending to be a Radiohead fan.

We have no idea when or how this beef with Radiohead will end, but we hope it lasts for a very long time.
