The scandalous remarks that Kid Rock made against Oprah Winfrey and other important women during an inebriated speech have been reaffirmed by the musician.
In 2019, he went on a profanity-laced outburst in front of an audience and took aim at Oprah, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Joy Behar. During a recent segment of Tucker Carlson Originals, he gave some thought to his previous statements and remarked, “I own what I said.”
TMZ is the outlet that released the footage, which was shot at a location in Nashville, Tennessee, in the state of Tennessee. Specifically, it featured Rock making fun of several television celebrities. As he talked for two minutes onstage before having to be assisted off by security, members of the audience remarked that he appeared to be “blackout intoxicated.” He had to be carried off the platform.
Rock defended his inebriated outburst in an interview with Fox Nation’s Tucker Carlson that aired in the episode of “Life of a Rockstar” that became available to stream on Wednesday.
“A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts, I own what I said,” Rock said of his harsh comments. He continued, reflecting on that night: “I don’t apologise to anybody. I’m not an Oprah Winfrey fan.
“I got drunk and f***in’ next thing, I’m on stage — f***Oprah,” Rock said.
Rock did fix up one error he made during his intoxicated 2019 address. It was Kathy Griffin, not Kathie Lee Gifford, that he intended to condemn, but he made a mistake and insulted Kathie Lee Gifford instead. “I was trying to go after Kathy Griffin you know, for holding up Trump’s head, but I’m so out of it I’m like ‘f*** Kathie Lee Gifford.'”
After posting an image of herself carrying a mask intended to appear like then-President Donald Trump’s severed head in 2017, Griffin was subjected to a significant amount of criticism for her actions. Because of the backlash she received, she was fired from a few of her previous positions.
Throughout his tirade in 2019, Rock said many times, “F*** Oprah Winfrey and f*** Kathie Lee Gifford.” He said, “I’m not a horrible man. I’m just a straightforward individual who wants it to be known that “Hey, I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar.” They are capable of sucking d*** in both directions.”
During that time period, he kept up his attack against Oprah on social media by tweeting about the television show.
“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…” He then included the rainbow flag before concluding the tweet, sent on November 29, 2019 with “I said f*** that and her. End of story.”
Rock has frequently put himself in the path of controversy by being open about his opinions. During one of his performances in June 2021, he was caught on camera directing a homophobic insult towards supporters who were filming him. He then tweeted his defence of the words and expressed his affection for his “gay supporters.”
In March, a snippet from Tucker Carlson’s interview with Kid Rock was aired, in which Carlson revealed that Donald Trump once asked Kid Rock for his advice on how to deal with North Korea while Trump was in office. Carlson made this revelation during the interview with Kid Rock, which was conducted in February.
