The Who’s Roger Daltrey didn’t hold back his feelings on ‘woke’ culture as he joined Dan Wootton on GB News on Monday night.
The frontman made an appearance on Dan’s second show on the new channel, following Lord Alan Sugar’s guest spot during its debut over the weekend.
When pressed for his opinion on woke Britain, Roger responded: ‘I just feel, where’s humour? If you’re going to micromanage every emotion you ever have and you live in fear of upsetting someone or being objectionable.
‘We all have the right to be objectionable to anyone we meet.
‘If you’re offended, fine. Get over it. Get a life and move on.’
Viewers had a lot to say about Roger’s comments, with one slamming: ‘I always found him repulsive. And if that’s a taste of what that channel has to offer, I’m glad I had already decided to avoid it. Ughs all-round.’

Taking an ironic swipe and referring to The Who’s ‘stick it to the man’ ethos, another wrote: ‘Old people still trying to put the young generation down, it seems. He could sing a song about that.’
GB News launched on Sunday and was plagued by technical difficulties just minutes into its debut, with Andrew Neil forced to salvage a chaotic interview that viewers were struggling to hear.
Andrew also promised the channel will ‘expose the growing promotion of cancel culture’ and give a voice ‘to those who feel sidelined or silenced’ as he launched the network with a one-hour special.
The channel, positioned as a rival to the news and current affairs offerings of the likes of BBC and Sky, opened with Welcome To GB News – an hour-long introduction to the presenting line-up.
