Kid Rock should probably lay off the booze. Just sayin’. This time he got smashed and got up on stage at a Nashville bar where he proceeded to go on a foul-mouthed, drunken rant against Oprah Winfrey, Joy Behar, and Kathy Griffin. Don’t get me wrong… all three are worthy of that, but it’s a really bad look for the Kid. He then got dragged off stage. I might also point out that it’s his bar.
The 48-year-old rocker was at the Big A– Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville when he started yelling into the microphone, “F— Oprah. Oprah Winfrey is like ‘Hey, I just want women to believe in this sh–‘. F— her. She can s— d— sideways,” according to video obtained by TMZ. “And if you say that, people say, ‘Hey, I’m pretty sure Kid Rock’s a racist.’ I’m, like, ‘OK, fine’. F— off’,” he added. Kid Rock has never had a filter and I can’t really blame him for letting loose here. There’s a part of me that actually revels in it.
From Fox News:
“Kid, real name Robert James Ritchie, also took aim at “The View” co-host Joy Behar before he turned over the mic. “I’m not a bad guy, I’m just an honest guy saying I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar,” he said.
“Back in 2008, Kid made his feelings about Oprah known. He told The Independent magazine, “I just don’t believe her. Maybe it’s because I’m not one of the 150 million brainwashed women who heed her every word.”
“The crowd didn’t approve of Kid’s message. In the video, someone can be heard saying, “He’s racist. Look at him he’s blacked out drunk as f—.'”
“More recently, in August, the entertainer slammed Taylor Swift on social media because he disliked a tweet she wrote about her political beliefs and why she’s become more vocal about issues that are important to her.
“Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period,” Kid wrote on Friday.
“Rock then implied Swift, 29, would perform a sexually suggestive act to get in the good graces of “Hollyweird” before he concluded it was the “oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.”‘
I’ve never been a fan of Oprah either. I’m certainly no fan of Behar or Griffin. As far as Taylor Swift goes, she’s gone totally leftist and I have no use for her either anymore. Which is sad because I used to love her music.
Having said that, not liking them is far different from getting up there and telling the world your thoughts. That’s not always a wise thing to do and Kid Rock is not helping himself here. Not liking any of them does not make him a racist or a misogynist. I feel just as he does. But he needs to lay off the public attacks… at least in this way.
Kid Rock has done many good and kind things such as paying off the outstanding balance of 350 Nashville families’ layaway accounts at Walmart. “Kudos to Kid Rock for making such a gesture in our community,” said manager Tom Meyer. “I think that’s a pretty Nashville proud moment.”
The left also calls him a racist while conveniently forgetting that he enthusiastically endorsed Republican John James for U.S. Senate in Michigan. James is a person of color. That probably doesn’t count because James is a Republican.
Kid Rock is a huge Trump supporter and he’s not helping the president with these kinds of actions either. All in all, it probably wasn’t one of his better moments.
