After The Roots played a song by the punk rock group, Fishbone called “Lyin Ass Bitch” during Michelle Bachmann’s introduction on NBC’s “The Jimmy Fallon Show,” Michelle Bachmann has accused NBC of sexism.
Bachmann also accused NBC of having a double standard for conservative women. The Roots also played “Crooklyn Part 2” featuring rapper Chubb Rock during liberal commentator, Barbara Walters appearance on the Roots. In the song Chubb Rock says “You watchin’ channel zero with that bitch Barbara Walters.”

But Fallon’s apology doesn’t appear to be enough for Bachmann, who accused NBC of sexism for not issuing an apology on behalf of the network. She told Fox News in an interview Wednesday whoever in the band chose the song should disciplined or fired and suggested NBC has a double standard in how it treats Republican women.
“This wouldn’t be tolerated if it were Michelle Obama, and it shouldn’t be tolerated for a conservative woman,” Bachmann said, calling the song choice an “outrage.”
