Kid Rock: Love Everybody, Except for ‘That Joy Behar B***h’

Well, we shall see if Kid Rock takes the ladies up on their offer come Monday - or if he's too much of a coward to call a 76-year-old woman an expletive to her face. "I would say, 'love everybody, ' except I'd say, screw that Joy Behar b-".

Behar, who also co-hosts "The View", has been highly critical of President Trump, who Kid Rock has made clear he thinks is doing "a great job". "Mine would be just, you know the division in the country right now, that it's so hard for people just to get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another".

Instead, James Shaw Jr., who was a hero in the Antioch Waffle House shooting, was invited to replace him.

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

Kid Rock's comments drew quick backlash, with a spokesman for Mayor David Briley saying he was leaning against participating in the parade if the singer was leading it, citing the "hateful" words.

"People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct and I would say you know, love everybody", said Rock.

According to WSMV, a local NBC News affiliate, Nashville's mayor expressed reservations about attending the parade if Kid Rock were part of it. "We apologize for that", he said.

The 65th Nashville Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 1 will not feature Kid Rock, who had previously volunteered to serve as its Grand Marshal.

"I mean lady", Kid Rock said. "Have your thoughts and ideas, but be able to still go have a beer with somebody", Kid Rock said.

"It warms the heart to be here with the Dasilva family", Shaw told the Associated Press Saturday morning.

"She has a different point of view than you do", Doocy said. "But I wanna say first, I don't agree with calling any woman a bitch for having a political opinion, people do it to me all the time".

In a statement to ABC News after being ousted from the parade, Rock refused to apologise for insulting Behar.
