On Monday’s episode of ‘The Five’ on Fox News, Greg Gutfeld yet again targeted the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He praised an Avalanches song called “Subways” as his favorite song of the summer, playing a clip of the music video. Co-host Eric Bolling referenced Gutfeld’s distaste of the Chili Peppers.
“You don’t like Red Hot Chili Peppers, but you do like them.”
Gutfeld responded, “[The Avalanches] make Red Hot Chili Peppers look like poop.”
Bolling said, “I mean Scar Tissue, Californication, Under the Bridge. These are good songs, and I have to look at this. This looks like a Simpsons episode.”
Gutfeld hit back, “Red Hot Chili Peppers is Dad Rock. These are guys approaching their 60’s, and they’re still shirtless.”
Late last week Gutfeld also said, “There’s so much evil in this world. War, famine, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld just ‘can’t stop’ trolling Red Hot Chili Peppers fans, he’s addicted to the shindig. On an episode of The Greg Gutfeld Show a week and a half ago, he compared the Chili Peppers to the 2003 Christmas-themed romantic comedy Love Actually. The film stars Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, and Laura Linney. Alternative Nation transcribed the diss.
Gutfeld made the comparison when discussing a list of the greatest films of all time, “But what’s always more interesting is what didn’t make the list, Love Actually. The world agrees, it’s the worst film ever. It is truly the Red Hot Chili Peppers of movies.”
He later added, “I hate them, I hate them.”
“I pretended to [reconcile with them], and now I hate them even more. Shirtless aging millionaires.”
On ‘The Five’ the previous week, Gutfeld responded to the backlash he has received online for calling the Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘the worst band on the planet.’ Co-hosts Eric Bolling and Kennedy also gave their take on the controversy. Alternative Nation transcribed Gutfeld, Bolling, and Kennedy’s comments.
Gutfeld said, “Two days ago I said that the Red Hot Chili Peppers were the worst band on the planet. I received a lot of flack from fans all over the world. What I meant to say is the Red Hot Chili Peppers is the worst band in the universe. I’d like to apologize for that confusion. I want to explain that we live in a binary universe. You’re either a Faith No More fan, or a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan.
You cannot love Mike Patton and Anthony Kiedis, because they are two different people. You have to love Mike Patton, you cannot love Anthony Kiedis. So that is why the Red Hot Chili Peppers are the worst band in the universe, because Faith No More is the greatest band in the universe.”
Bolling responded, “Can I disagree? I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Californication, Scar Tissue, I’m a big fan, and I hate Faith No More.”
Gutfeld shot back, “How can you hate Faith No More?”
Kennedy proclaimed, “Mike Patton is an incredible vocalist.”
Gutfeld added, “Mike Patton is the greatest singer alive.”
