Flying Lotus Uses All The Wrong Words About Hilary Clinton

Flying Lotus performed a sold out show at the Fox Theater in Oakland on Friday night, a prelude to Brainfeeder's Hollywood Bowl show that included a Thundercat set featuring Michael McDonald.
At the show Flying Lotus reportedly made a good number of comments about why he didn't support Donald Trump, NME reports. However, he then turned his attention to Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton. "I couldn't possibly vote for a woman who doesn't give an awesome blowjob," he said, referencing Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, to an audibly surprised audience. Despite adding that he was "just kidding. I'm going to vote for her a** anyway, no lie", Flying Lotus was widely criticised online for his comments.
Taking to Twitter in defence, the producer later wrote: "The more PC and scared everyone gets, the more I love having a microphone to say some depraved s*** u need to hear."
Want more ladies at your show, @flyinglotus? Try not leading off the set with a misogynist joke about Hillary Clinton.— Katharine Moore (@KatharineTMoore) September 17, 2016

Last night at the Hollywood Bowl show, he referenced Clinton once again. "Shouts out to Hillary, my boo," he said, laughing.
