Kid Rock booted from leading parade after profane TV remarks

Kid Rock booted from leading parade after profane TV remarks

Kid Rock is slated to be grand marshal Saturday in the privately run Nashville Christmas Parade. "People need to calm down get a little less politically correct", Rock said.

The main sponsors include Piedmont Natural Gas and five bars on Nashville's main nightlife strip, including Kid Rock's establishment. "I would say, 'Love everybody, ' except I'd say, 'Screw that Joy Behar bitch'".

Doocy and his co-anchors repeatedly apologized for the rocker's language.

During the Waffle House shooting in April, which took place in the Antioch area of Nashville, James Shaw Jr. wrestled the gun away from the shooter, who then fled.

Back in the NY studio, co-host Ainsley Earhardt doubled down on Doocy's remorse.

Mayoral spokesman Thomas Mulgrew said Briley was disgusted by Kid Rock's comments about Behar. "We don't condone that language".




A man who helped stop a Waffle House shooter stepped into the role as grand marshal for the Nashville Christmas Parade as a last-minute replacement Saturday for Kid Rock, who got the boot for his profane comments on live TV. "The choice of grand marshal evokes neither the spirit of Christmas nor the inclusivity I think represents the best of Nashville", he wrote.

WSMV reported that the replacement comes after Rock made derogatory comments about Joy Behar on an episode of Fox & Friends.

Huntsman said she felt Fox News handled the incident well by apologizing to viewers for the remarks, and other "View" panelists agreed. The mayor of Nashville was the next to weigh in, saying he wouldn't be going to the parade if Kid Rock was still the grand marshal. Rock doubled down on his statement and refused to apologize to Behar.

Rock issued his own statement on Facebook, pointing out that Behar had criticized him, Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin for visiting President Donald Trump at the White House in 2017.

Although Behar smiled and invited the rock star to join "this bitch and these bitches" on the show and to have a beer together, the other ladies were a bit torn. "Fox had to apologize for something".
