Kid Rock is at it again. He has gone after Oprah Winfrey this time putting himself in the line of fire and he has received a lot of flak from people for doing this.
He made disparaging remarks about Winfrey and for that he has received a lot of feedback. Guess what? He has even responded to all those who have voiced their thoughts about the remarks made by Kid.
On Friday at around 5 pm, Kid put out a statement on his Facebook page.
On Friday, Robert James Ritchie or Kid Rock resorted to Twitter explaining his side of story that why he went on a drunken rant about Winfrey at a bar during the week.
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**k that and her. End of story,” he wrote.
Kid was reportedly saying that he is just saying that what a lot of people think. He said that he wasn’t saying what he should be but sometimes he just does. “Oh well.”
Kid also accepted that he has a big mouth and sometimes he does drink too much and added that it is a shocker!
He said that he works very hard and does several things to help people out and alleged the press for not covering such acts of his and even if the press does then it is always back page news.
He wrote –
I love Trump, f*** them too. I am what I am, I ain’t what I ain’t!
The 48-year-old singer yelled into the microphone, “Fuck Oprah” and was escorted off stage at the Big A, Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville, which is owned by Kid.
While answering the internet users who expressed their anguish and anger for Kid for passing remarks for Winfrey, he wrote,
PS And you haters and internet trolls can check my touring numbers and shut your ignorant asses up! Boom!
He also tried to clear that he wasn’t being removed from his own bar but he was anyways leaving and the cops were simply helping him out. He also said that at least he does not drink and drive.
Some people also said that Kid was being racist for which Kid wrote,
PSSS. Was it racist when I said “F*** Joy Behar”???
He also wrote that, “By the way… I love Kathy Lee Gifford.”
When Kid yelled into the microphone, the crowd present at the spot did not approve of the message and the video uploaded over the internet by a media biggie showing the moment also has someone saying, “He’s racist. Look at him he’s blacked-out drunk as f—.'”
Way back in 2008, Kid had told a magazine that he just doesn’t believe Winfrey. Adding that this is because maybe he is not a part of the 150 million brainwashed women who pay heed to every word of hers.
In August this year, Kid had expressed his nasty side for Taylor Swift on social media after Swift tweeted about her political beliefs and why she’s become more vocal about issues that are important to her.
While reacting to her tweet he had said,
“Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period.”
