    Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke flips off anti-Israel protesters waving “Palestinian” flags at a Glasgow performance.

    The Washington Free Beacon reports:

    Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke reportedly flipped off anti-Israel protesters at the band’s concert Friday in Glasgow, Scotland, muttering “some f—ing people.”

    Radiohead has been pressured by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and pro-Palestinian groups to cancel a July 19 appearance in Tel Aviv, Israel, but Yorke has insisted the band will play.

    Fans in the audience said Yorke was visibly annoyed by activists from the Glasgow Palestine Action Group, Glasgow Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Radiohead Fans for Palestine who protested and waved flags, according to Israel Hayom.

    “Some f—ing people,” Yorke said four times between songs, in apparent reference to the protesters, and he also gave them the middle finger.

    One held a sign that said “Radiohead: #canceltelaviv.”

    Yorke told Rolling Stone last month that he disagrees with the BDS movement, saying the calls for the band to boycott Israel were “extremely upsetting.”
