Once again Foo Fighters trolled protestors from Westboro Baptist before a show in Kansas.
If somehow you've missed them over the years, Westboro Baptist ain't no church, it's a hate group. We don't have time for that, and neither do the Foo Fighters. On Thursday night the band played Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs. The hate group showed up with a series of chants and signs and Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foos showed up as their alter egos, The Dee Gees, dressed 1970s style jump-suits on the back of a pick-up truck.
Grohl told the protestors, “Alright now, ladies and gentlemen, I got something to say. Because you know what, I love you. I do! The way I look at it, is that I love everybody. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do? Can’t you just love everybody? Cause I think it’s about love! That’s what I think, we’re all about love. And you shouldn’t be hating, you know what you should be doing? You should be dancing!" Then they broke into their cover of The Bee Gees' "You Should Be Dancing."
This is the third encounter the Foos have had with the Westboro Baptist. In support of gay marriage, which the hate group is vocally against, Dave Grohl and company showed up on a flatbed truck in 2011 with lyrics celebrating "hot man muffins." (This was also in Kansas, by the way).
Then in 2015 they showed up to “rickroll” the group by playing Rick Astley’s anthem “Never Gonna Give You Up."
