Robert James Ritchie, professionally known as Kid Rock, started his career as a rapper and DJ. Over the course of his career, he released a number of albums and his style alternates between rock, hip hop, country, and heavy metal.
Besides his music and the hits he has under his belt, Kid Rock is known as someone who is never afraid to speak his mind. During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Kid Rock decided to use his chance to share with the audience how much he dislikes Joy Behar, the co-host of The View and all that she stands for.
“You know and just talk about things without going for each other’s throats and protesting everything, and God forbid you say something a little bit wrong, you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic. This, that and the other,” Kid Rock said to Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy. “People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct. And I would say you know, love everybody.”
To everyone’s surprise, he then added: “Except I’d say screw that Joy Behar b*tch. Everybody but that.”
Shocked by his words, Doocy apologized on behalf of her guest. Fox News censors didn’t manage to catch Kid Rock’s slur on time and his offensive words were televised nationally.
The star then proceeded: “I mean, lady. I mean, lady,” he said after Doocy apologized to the viewers. “Maybe we’ll go on, and I’ll hash it out with her, and we’ll talk about. But, aside from joking, which I was, is just go out and hash it out with people and have your thoughts and ideas but, be able to still go have a beer with somebody and just say you know hey, we all love this country. And you know, let’s have different ideas but try to move forward and be more together and realize at the end of the day we’re all Americans.”
Later on, when he went home, he decided to make things clear and explain to his fans that he in fact apologized for the language he used, not the feelings he has for Behar.
“I did apologize for the language. Not the sentiment,” the rock star concluded.
