Kid Rock was on stage at his bar in Nashville when he proceeded to slam none other than Oprah Winfrey and now, the TV legend’s fans are clapping back, defending her. It all started when footage that showed him cursing at Oprah and ranting about her was released online.
The clip is 2 minutes long and was shared via TMZ but was apparently captured by fans who were at the Big Honky Tonk and Rock n’ Roll Steakhouse when the Donald Trump supporter lashed out in front of his crowd.
‘I’m just an honest guy who says, ‘Hey, I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar,’ he tells the audience while slurring his words and then making oral sex references to insult the two women.
The Trump supporter notes that a lot of people call him racist, and people in the crowd actually proceeded to say it right then and there but there are also a lot of them who cheer as he shouts: ‘F*** Oprah Winfrey. F*** Kathy [Lee] Gifford. I’m not the bad guy.’
Later in the video, Kid can be seen stumbling off stage.
The rocker’s possibly inebriated outburst was not without consequences as he got a lot of backlash from Oprah’s fans on social media.
Here’s a few of the many outraged reactions that he got online: ‘Kid Rock how dare you say disgusting things about @Oprah!’ / ‘You just proved that you are a racist. Shame that the @WWE put you on their WWE Hall Of Fame. Just for this I am erasing your music from my devices. Get a clue!’ / ‘Ha and Oprah’s still a thousand times richer and more successful than you 😜who does not give a damn what a drunk who no one remembers anymore has to say… go to rehab and stop making a fool out of yourself!’
