The Westboro Baptist Church has a history of protesting at various events, including concerts. When they decided to protest at a Foo Fighters concert, little did they know that they were in for a surprise. The Foo Fighters decided that they were going to do a counter-protest.
They rode by the church in a rig truck while playing their song “Keep it Clean (Hot Buns)”. They were also wearing the same costumes that they were wearing in the video.
Dave Grohl is the lead singer of the band. During an interlude, he decided to make a speech expressing how everyone should be treated equally. He stated “God Bless America” during the speech. He goes on to say that America takes all kinds. It does not matter whether you are a Transylvanian or Pennsylvanian. He also talks about how color does not matter.
Additionally, Dave talks about how sexual orientation does not matter. He concludes his speech by saying “God bless America” again. The video of the Foo Fighters trolling the Westboro Baptist Church went viral in a short amount of time. In fact, it has received over seven million views since it was first posted. The Foo Fighters concert took place on August 21, 2015.
