Rock star Kid Rock isn’t going to apologize for his love of America or for a drunken rant attacking leftists Oprah Winfrey and “The View” host Joy Behar.
Appearing on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, Kid Rock sais, “A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts, I own what I said.”
Kid Rock told Carlson of the incident. interviewed the performer for an episode of his Fox Nation series “Tucker Carlson Originals,” and he shared a preview of the episode — titled “Life of a Rock Star” — on Monday.
A video obtained by TMZ in 2019 showed Kid Rock at his Nashville honky-tonk bar repeating “f*** Oprah Winfrey!”
“I don’t apologize to anybody. I’m not an Oprah Winfrey fan. I got drunk and f***in’ next thing, I’m on stage [saying] f*** Oprah …” he added.

That same night, Kid Rock was drunk and confused Regis Philbin’s longtime partner Kathie Lee Gifford with actress and comedian Kathy Griffin.
“I was trying to go after Kathy Griffin you know, for holding up Trump’s head, but I’m so out of it I’m like ‘f*** Kathie Lee Gifford,’” he said.
This was a mistake because he actually does like Kathie Lee Gifford.
“When it comes back on TMZ or whatever a few weeks later I’m like ‘oh man, I like Kathie Lee Gifford.’ We’ve been kind of friendly throughout the years,” he said.
“I’m uncancelable,” he said.
“I don’t give a f***,” Kid Rock added.
“I’m not in bed with any big corporate things at the end of the day. There’s nobody I’m beholden to. No record companies, no corporate interests, no nothing. You can’t cancel me. I love it when they try.”
