John Lydon Sexist Rant Video: Sex Pistols Star Tells Female Anchor To 'Shut Up'

Former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon -- also known as Johnny Rotten -- had a pretty "rotten" moment on television this week.

During an interview for Australian TV show The Project, female host Carrie Bickmore attempted to ask Lydon what he thought of Margaret Thatcher's death -- and it all went downhill from there. After telling her to "shut up" multiple times, Lydon got increasingly furious.

"When a man is talking, do not interrupt," Lydon said. "You sound like one of them dreadful loud birds I don't like."
