Kid Rock has become somewhat of a controversial figure in recent years, but not due to his style of music; mostly for his political opinions and affiliations. On Friday, Kid Rock went on Fox News and said in front of viewers at home, “…except that Joy Behar b*tch.”
In response, Joy and the other co-hosts of The View invited the 90’s and early 2000’s rock star to come on to the show for a beer together. Joy joked that he should come on to join “this b*tch and these b*tches” for a drink.
Previously, Kid Rock was on Fox and Friends where he complained about everyone being so “politically correct these days.” The rock star called for people to be a little more thick-skinned in the face of adversity.
While joking around about being “hopped up on coffee and Baileys,” Kid Rock made his comment about Joy Behar. The legendary musician called for all Americans to come together, except for Joy Baher.
Regardless, the crowd appeared to love what Kid Rock said, cheering him on from the audience. The host, Doocy, immediately went into damage control mode and tried to get Kid to apologize.
Later on, the “American Bada*s” singer said that he was “only joking,” and that he’d be open to sitting down later and working out their differences. According to Kid Rock, one of the main reasons for saying what he said was to “bring the country together.”
The star said, “we’re all Americans.” Kid Rock has actually come out as an ardent Trump supporter and even appeared in the White House for a meet-and-greet.
Interestingly, Kid Rock got his start in the music scene as a rapper back in 1990 with his debut album, Grit Sandwiches For Breakfast. He quickly became one of the biggest acts in the Detroit rap scene, shipping around 100,000 copies.
He first started collaborating with the producer, Mike E. Clark, who was doubtful that a white man could rap. This was back in the 1990s, several years before Eminem released his first record, Infinite.
Some in the rap community have looked retrospectively at Kid Rock as a mistake, due to the fact he rose to prominence as a rapper, a genre dominated by black people, only to become a Republican later in life and associated with Donald Trump whose political views are interpreted as hostile to minorities.
