Community hero steps in for Kid Rock to lead holiday parade

James Shaw Jr

Musician Kid Rock, an ardent supporter of President Trump, has been booted from Saturday's Nashville Christmas Parade grand marshal gig for after offering a blunt assessment of Joy Behar, the liberal co-host of "The View". "Except, screw that Joy Behar b--", Rock said.

As Variety notes, Rock appeared on Fox and Friends Friday morning and talked about political correctness, before turning his attention briefly to Behar. Fox's co-host, Ainsley Earhardt also told viewers, "We do need to apologize". On Friday night, Rock took to Facebook and said that he wasn't sorry at all for what he said. Kid Rock was nowhere to be seen as the parade started along its route, according to The Tennessean. Meanwhile, local business owner Steve Smith firmly rejected of the change, asking that the parade refund his donation or keep Kid Rock in the proceedings. "Today I said 'Screw that Joy Behar bitch.' Mess with the bull, you get the horns".

Behar went on to refer to all of the Republicans as "sore-winners", and said that it was time for them to "shut up now".

Kid Rock added: 'I apologize for the language, not the sentiment'.

Shaw was hailed as a hero for wrestling a gun away from the shooter during a Nashville Waffle House shooting in April that killed four people and injured four others.

Doocy told Rock, "You can not say that. We don't condone that language".

City councilman Freddie O'Connell tweeted he would sit out of the festivities, arguing that Kid Rock "evokes neither the spirit of Christmas nor the inclusivity I think represents the best of Nashville", while Nashville Mayor David Briley also noted he'd be following suit. On Saturday, he retweeted a news article about him being in the parade.

'This b**** and these b******s will be happy to have you on the show and have a beer, ' Behar, a proud Democrat, said.

"You know what's great", she continued.

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

"I apologized for cursing on live TV, I will not for my sentiment nor do I expect an apology from her or anyone else who has choice words for me or doesn't like me", Rock wrote on Friday.
