'Blackout drunk' Kid Rock slams Oprah Winfrey, Joy Behar in expletive-filled tirade before being escorted out of bar
The singer said, 'I'm not a bad guy, I'm just an honest guy, saying I don't like Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar.' At the end of the clip, he gets physically removed from the stage by a uniformed officer before being escorted out of the bar.
Kid Rock recently performed at the Honky Tonk Bar — owned by him — in Nashville, but the performance soon turned ugly when the singer burst into a foul-mouthed drunken tirade against Oprah Winfrey and 'The View' host, Joy Behar.
TMZ has obtained footage that shows the 48-year-old country rocker with a drink in his hand, and derogatorily referring to Winfrey. He says he doesn't like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar, adding "they can s*** a d*** sideways".
Kid Rock went on to acknowledge that many would find his sentiment racist, saying, "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. As audiences called him out for being racist, Kid Rock continues to swear through the two-and-a-half minute clip. He adds, "I'm not a bad guy, I'm just an honest guy, saying I don't like Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar."
At the end of the clip, Kid Rock is physically removed from the stage by a uniformed officer before being escorted out of the bar.
Kid Rock doubled down on his comments and tweeted in reference to the incident on Friday, writing, "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 f*** that and her. End of story."
This is not the first time the singer has attacked Winfrey or Behar. In a 2008 "my secret life" interview with Independent, Kid Rock referred to Winfrey as his "real-life villain", saying she rubs him the wrong way. He added, "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."
In November 2019, Rock appeared on 'Fox and Friends' and lashed out at Joy Behar, telling host Steve Doocy, "I would say, 'Love everybody' ... except I'd say, 'Sc*** that Joy Behar.'" Following this, he was booted from the Christmas Parade that year.
In 2011, Kid Rock was slammed for his use of the Confederate flag on stage and was accused of racism by protesters.
