Over the holiday weekend, Kid Rock rattled the interwebs with a profanity-laced, drunken rant against Oprah, Joy Behar and what sounded like Kathie Gifford (probably meant Kathy Griffin) at his own bar in downtown Nashville.
He has since clarified his statements with a Facebook post. Well, maybe clarified isn’t exactly the word. Doubled down might be a better way to put it…
“My people tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey show years ago and her people wanted me to write down 5 reasons why I loved her and her show, I said fuck that and her. End of story.
I am just saying what a lot of people think. Not saying I should be, but sometimes I just do. Oh well. I have a big mouth and drink too much sometimes, shocker! I also work hard and do a ton to help others out but that’s just back page news because the press hates I love Trump, fuck them too. I am what I am, I ain’t what I ain’t!
PS And you haters and internet trolls can check my touring numbers and shut your ignorant asses up! Boom!
PSS I did not get removed from MY OWN BAR (fake news) if anything I was leaving and the cops were helping me out…Hey, at least I don’t drink and drive!
PSSS. Was it racist when I said “Fuck Joy Behar”??? and by the way… I love Kathy Lee Gifford.”
Remember, this is coming from the guy that has a giant middle finger sculpture in the yard of his Nashville home. I wouldn’t expect anything less…
And if you were too busy spending time with your family and stuffing your face with turkey to catch the rant over the weekend, here it is.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
