Radiohead's Thom Yorke responded to protesters at a Glasgow, Scotland, music festival by flipping them off. They were protesting the band's decision to appear in Tel Aviv, Israel. The vicious BDS movement tries to get people to boycott Israeli products, services, and funding, because they believe that a Jewish state shouldn't exist. They were waving Palestinian flags and had a large sign that said, "Radiohead #CancelTelAviv." Yorke wasn't going to kowtow to their anti-Semitism, so he denounced them.
