Following Kid Rock’s comments regarding Joy Behar, one of the primary co-hosts of The View, the former rap-rocker has refused to step down from what he had to say, even after losing his job as a grand marshal during the Nashville Christmas Parade.
On Friday night, Kid Rock chose to elaborate on why he chose to step down willingly, and also why he refuses to apologize for saying the things that he did during his appearence on Fox and Friends.
Last year on The View, claims Rock, Joy Behar referred to himself, Ted Nugent, and Sarah Palin derisively, for their photo together in front of the Hillary Clinton White House photo.
While discussing politics on Fox and Friends on Friday morning, Kid Rock said that we’re all Americans, “except I’d say, ‘Screw that Joy Behar b*tch.'”
The Fox host then tactfully criticized Rock for his choice of words and went on to apologize for all of those viewers at home. On Friday night, Rock took to Facebook and said that he wasn’t sorry at all for what he said.

Well folks, it is official…My parade has been rained on! But in the end, it is not about me. It is about the kids and the wonderful work they do at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Either way, myself, family and especially my granddaughter, are gonna enjoy today. Sending well wishes for a break in the rain and a successful parade. I love Nashville and the people she holds. But remember…Rock n Roll Never Forgets!! Robert Ritchie / Kid Rock
“Mess with the bull, you get the horns,” Kid Rock wrote, before then going on to explain himself on Instagram as well with a post. He added that he doesn’t expect an apology from Joy or anyone else either.
Following Kid Rock’s comments, the mayor of Nashville said he didn’t appreciate Ritchie’s sentiments, and worse, it’s a bad image for a Christmas Parade. The Democratic mayor said that he probably wouldn’t go if Kid Rock was still the Grand Marshal.
Following Rock, Nugent, and Palin’s photo in front of Clinton’s photo last April of 2017, which became a popular meme online, Joy Behar said that it was arguably “the saddest day in the history of the White House” since it was burned down over two-hundred years ago in 1814.
Behar went on to refer to all of the Republicans as “sore-winners,” and said that it was time for them to “shut up now.” Later on, Kid Rock also tweeted his video with Sean Penn asking for “unity” just before the election between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, which Obama eventually won.
