Nathan Followill fires back at him for calling his band "assholes" in this week's Hollywood Reporter.
Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has fired back at Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who criticizes the band in this week's Hollywood Reporter for turning down the Fox show's request to Glee-ify the song "Use Somebody" last year.
Murphy tells THR: "F--- you, Kings of Leon. They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument." On Wednesday, hours after the THR story hit the web, Followill Tweeted: "Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f---." Murphy Tweeted back: "Just read Nathan Followill's Tweet…in which he implied I should ‘get a manicure and buy a bra.’ Wow. That's a homophobe badly in need of some education. I'm all for manicures, don't wear a bra. Would guess most gay dudes don't. But it's telling that Nathan can reduce a group of people to a mean-spirited cliché, in a time where young gay men are killing themselves all over the country because of hatred like this." Followill apologized Wednesday afternoon: "I'm sorry 4 anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or misogynistic. I'm so not that kind of person. I really do apologize."
