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.
