Well kids, I hope you’re ready because this one’s a doozy. Kid Rock performed at the Honky Tonk bar in Nashville last week and went on a rant after apparently having too much to drink. While most people get drunk and make out with others, get violent, tell a couple people where to get off, Kid Rock chooses to insult the biggest names in the business. To start he said “F*ck Oprah” repeatedly, followed by “F*ck Joy Behar.” I don’t exactly know what Oprah did to him, as I don’t really know other than with Monique what she’s done to much of anyone. If you don’t like her opinion, here’s an idea, turn the channel. Her show ended over a decade ago. What could have possibly aired that any of us can even remember?
Anyway, the kicker was Kid Rock saying Oprah could “suck d*ck sideways.” Well that’s kind of extreme. And I’ve never heard of him having an issue with Oprah. He comes across as someone who is just ideologically driven and rails against people for being on the other side of the aisle without reason. I would actually justify Monique telling Oprah that since they legitimately have a beef with each other. As for Joy Behar, Fox News had a rough morning where there was a serious of people cursing where he kicked the morning off saying Joy Behar was a b*tch. They immediately apologized, only to be followed up with Janice Dean dropping an F bomb while scaling a building during a Fox and Friends segment. Anyway, Behar has spoken out quite boisterously against Trump to put it nicely and as a Trump supporter, it’s understandable why he’d be upset. As for Oprah, she’s fairly middle of the road. I can’t think of anything she’s done that would cause me to tell her to go perform sideways fellatio, but alas, I am not Kid Rock. And from the looks of things, that might be a good thing. He even threw Kathy Lee Gifford in there for good measure saying “F*ck her” and for God knows what reason.
While not being too drunk to not be somewhat self-aware, Kid Rock said that some people might find what he said about Oprah to be racist but they could “f*ck off.” And at one point he can be heard saying, “I’m not a bad guy, I’m just an honest guy, saying I don’t like Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar.” And that self-awareness he had didn’t exactly go that far because he was pulled off of the stage by his team as he had clearly done and said enough for the evening. He later tweeted, “My people tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey Show years ago and her people wanted me to write down five reasons why I loved her and her show…I said fuck that and her. End of story.” I’m no fan of groveling by any means, but if that’s the source of his anger, just imagine how he handles major things. We’ve also noticed some ambiguity on the coverage of this event. The Hollywood Reporter originally reported that his tirade was racist but stated they since removed that from the headline. Hmm… wonder what that was about.
