Kid Rock Fired From Christmas Parade Following 'Anti-PC' Rant
The genre-melding country hip-hop star we know as Kid Rock will no longer be leading this year's Christmas parade in Nashville.
The southern rapper lost the prestigious gig after a lengthy rant on Fox and Friends on Friday in which he called The View panellist Joy Behar a "b***h".
"The division in the country right now is so hard for people just to get past ... that we can disagree and still be cordial to one another," Kid Rock said during a live cross in front of members of the public.
"People need to calm down and get a little less politically correct and I would say love everybody, except that Joy Behar b***h," he added, as the crowd cheered, but Fox host Steve Doocy looked visibly concerned.
"You cannot say that," Doocy explained.
"We apologise for that," he told the audience.
Kid Rock later explained on Instagram that he targeted Behar because she has been "an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump".
"And when myself, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent visited the White House Last Year, Behar called it 'the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1814," Kid Rock added.
He has now explained in a post today that his "parade had been rained on" but that "Rock n Roll Never Forgets".
The Christmas parade organisers released a statement confirming the news, saying the grand marshal of the event should "personify the spirit of the Nashville community".
Behar -- an outspoken Democrat -- appears to have taken great pleasure in the fact that Kid Rock lost the Christmas gig and that Fox was forced to apologise on his behalf.
She also extended an invitation to the rapper, telling him he was welcome to be a guest panellist on The View.
"All I can say is, this b***h, and these b***es, would be happy to have you on the show and have a beer," she explained on the show.
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
