What would you do if you were attacked by Muslims for having an ice cold glass of beer? Would you be angry and fight back? Or would you stop drinking to appease them?
Watch as angry Muslims storm into a private record store in Istanbul where Radiohead fans had the audacity to drink during Ramadan.
Radiohead fans listening to a live stream of the band’s new album were allegedly attacked for drinking during the month of Ramadan.
Violence broke out at the event at Velvet IndieGround Records in Istanbul on Friday night, where fans had gathered to listen to Radiohead’s new release, A Moon Shaped Pool.
Local media reported that the attack came from Islamic extremists objecting to people drinking alcohol and playing music during the holy month of Ramadan.
Attackers are shown entering the shop, shouting “close this place down” and “who the f*** is running this place”.
The sounds of bottles breaking can be heard as someone screams: “Please do not hit.”
A man enters the store, saying: “Get the f*** out, close this place down, I’ll kill you, I mean it, I’ll kill you… I’ll burn this place with you inside.”
What a Creep.
What a weirdo.
What the hell was he doing there?
Maybe he’ll hear some Radiohead and have an epiphany:
But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here
I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around

Bro obviously needs to chillax with a brewski.
It was ROUGH.
One of the event hosts allegedly posted about the encounter on Reddit, saying: “I am the person that’s speaking in that video. I am the owner of that Periscope account.
“They were determined to kill us. We were beaten by more than 20 men with pipes in their hands, beer bottles were broken on our heads. I don’t even know how we made it out. I will share the details later guys, just hoping that no one will die.”
He later added: “I love you all. Looks like everyone at our event is fine. For the first time in my life, I was scared of being killed. Can’t even think right now, just a blank stare at the walls.
“Weird Fishes is my favourite song in the world, and I was dancing to it outside when it all started. Now it has so much more meaning for me.”
Radiohead had organized that their 2016 album would be livestreamed in record stores around the world.
When the band learned of the violence, they issued a statement.
The band said in a statement: “Our hearts go out to those attacked tonight at Velvet IndieGround in Istanbul.
“We hope that someday we will be able to look back on such acts of violent intolerance as things of the ancient past.
“For now, we can only offer our fans in Istanbul our love and support.”

We like the badassery of Radiohead.
Radiohead’s lead singer, Thom Yorke, went on-record telling Roger Waters of Pink Floyd where to shove it when he tried to coerce Radiohead out of playing a show in Tel Aviv. Yorke said that he was tired of being ‘bullied’ by people that ‘sh*t at us in public’.
Here’s a musical tribute courtesy of Radiohead to the Muslim teetotalers that got violent over a beer:
Be thankful that you live in the good ol’ U.S. of A.
But you know that if the leftists grab hold of the reigns of power, we’ll be in the same boat as those poor schlubs in Istanbul because of ‘tolerance’.
