Published Dec 02, 2019Kid Rock has come forward with a statement following his controversial and seemingly aimless "F*** Oprah" rant obtained by TMZ last week.
In a Facebook post published late Friday (November 29), the MAGA rocker clarifies that his hate for Oprah Winfrey stems from a time when he was meant to appear on her show a few years ago. He says Oprah's team tried to get him to say nice things about the television host — instructions he refused to follow.
"My people tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey show years ago," he writes "And her people wanted me to write down 5 reasons why I loved her and her show????? I said fuck that and her. End of story."
He goes on to clarify that he wasn't being kicked out of his bar in the video, despite clearly being dragged by police at one point. Also, he still wants you to know that he's definitely, totally, 100 percent not racist.
"I have a big mouth and drink too much sometimes, shocker!" he writes. "I also work hard and do a ton to help others out but that's just back page news because the press hates I love Trump, fuck them too. I am what I am, I ain't what I ain't!"
Last week, the visibly intoxicated musician was heard yelling "F*** Oprah," multiple times at his Nashville bar the Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N' Roll Steakhouse, later suggesting that she can "suck a dick sideways," while simultaneously cursing out television personalities Joy Behar and Kathie Lee Gifford.
So far, Oprah has not responded to any of Kid Rock's comments about her.
