NBC apoloises to Michele Bachmann over talk show intro music

NBC has apologised to Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann after her appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show was briefly soundtracked by a rendition of Fishbone’s 1985 song Lyin’ Ass Bitch.

There was controversy earlier this week when it emerged that the show’s band had played the intro of the song as Bachmann made her entrance. Bachmann has been calling for an apology, claiming that she shouldn’t be treated in such a way when someone like Michelle Obama would never suffer such an indignity.

Bachmann remains in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, but is lagging in the polls. She has now reportedly accepted the apology from NBC. It’s not clear whether any disciplinary action will be taken against the band over the incident.
