Kid Rock booted from leading parade after profane TV remarks

'Fox And Friends' Is Very Sorry Kid Rock Called Joy Behar A 'B*tch' On Live TV

Naturally, all of this didn't sit too well with the city, who had previously appointed Kid Rock as the Grand Marshal of Saturday morning's big downtown Christmas parade. "People need to calm down and get a little less politically correct". "What is it about me that he feels the need to say that though?"

Appearing on Fox and Friends, Kid Rock called for people to come together, but added a caveat. "I would say, 'love everybody, ' except I'd say, screw that Joy Behar b-".

Some sponsors of the parade argued for Rock to stay in the parade.

God forbid you say something a little wrong-you're racist, homophobic, Islamophobic.

In a statement Friday, parade organizers Piedmont Natural Gas, Monroe Carell Jr.

Multiple Fox & Friends personalities apologized.

Early in the morning, Rock addressed the situation on his Facebook page, expressing his intent to still enjoy the parade.

Oil tumbles below $50 first time in year on Russian Federation output stance
But oil trade, vital for Russian economy, is conducted in USA dollars, a "monopoly" Russia's President Vladimir Putin wants to end.

That led to sponsors announcing that Rock would be replaced, but another sponsor, who is one of Rock's business partners, said the parade is his and Rock is staying. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, and Tennessee Holiday Productions.

The chat took place in Kid Rock's Nashville bar, where he openly swigged whiskey on camera and admitted to having had a boozy Irish coffee.

The bars were noticeably absent from the statement announcing that Kid Rock would no longer be in the parade. "Have your thoughts and ideas, but be able to still go have a beer with somebody", Kid Rock said.

Steve Doocy: Listen, she's just got a different point of view from you.

Steve Smith's attorney said there will not be a lawsuit if Rock is reinstated, but he said Rock will be at the parade tomorrow. Kid Rock, a brash Detroit-area musician whose real name is Robert Ritchie, for a while teased a Republican run for the U.S. Senate in the 2018 election.

Mayoral spokesman Thomas Mulgrew said Briley was disgusted by Kid Rock's comments about Behar.
