Kid Rock’s mouth got the better of him this time.
The “All Summer Long” singer will spend this winter on the sidelines after being stripped from his position as Grand Marshall of the Nashville Christmas Parade.
Earlier today, Rock called “The View” host Joy Behar “a b**tch” while appearing live on “Fox & Friends”. When asked if he regretted what he said, Rock challenged, “I did apologize for the language, not the sentiment.”
Fox News was forced to apologize for Rock’s behaviour and the cast of “The View” addressed the situation live on the air. This all led to Nashville Mayor David Briley threatening to skip this year’s Nashville Christmas Parade.
Later in the day, organizers opted to remove Rock from his status as Grand Marshall and bestowed the honour of Waffle House mass shooting hero James Shaw Jr, according to Tennessean. The electrical technician wrestled an assault rifle away from a gunman in Nashville on April 22, likely saving lives in the process.
Sponsors for the Christmas Parade were reportedly split on Rock’s dismissal with one co-organizer promising Rock will be at the parade.
