Kid Rock booted from leading parade after profane TV remarks

GettyImages-102012431

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Richie, took to Instagram Friday evening to respond to backlash from his Behar comments, not mentioning losing the Nashville honor because of his words.

The rocker was removed from the position on Friday, one day before the beloved city event, after the city's mayor said he would skip the event after Rock called The View co-host Joy Behar a "bitch" on Fox & Friends Friday morning.

"Well, all I can say is, this b- and these b-es would be happy to have you on the show and have a beer", Behar said, although she said she didn't understand why Rock lashed out at her in particular.

Doocy immediately chided him, "You can not say that". And, I would say, you know, love everybody, except - I'd say screw that Joy Behar b***h.

Multiple Fox & Friends personalities apologized.

"I did apologize for language", Rock said.

Prior to Shaw being named grand marshal, Metro Councilman Freddie O'Connell said he would not participate in Saturday's parade due to Kid Rock's role. Shaw, who has become a national figure after his heroics in the spring, has accepted the invitation, according to a spokesman for the group of organizers.

Trump signs NAFTA replacement deal ahead of G20 summit
It's true that when the deal was reached, the Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, praised Trump for making progress. Trudeau's readout on the same call also mentioned lifting the tariffs the US imposed on steel and aluminum.

In a statement Friday, parade organizers Piedmont Natural Gas, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, and Tennessee Holiday Productions.

"Love everybody", Kid Rock said.

"I have had many interactions with [Rock]".

"I mean lady", Kid Rock said.

"When you have the grand marshal of what's labeled Nashville's Christmas parade saying hateful things on national television, the mayor obviously does not want to be included in an event with someone like that", spokesman Thomas Mulgrew said.

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. "I've been in those moments when someone called President Obama a racist on the air and you have to react in those moments because that doesn't represent who you are".

Briley is a liberal Democrat.
