Kid Rock was recently involved in an incident in which he had to be escorted off the stage after he went on a rant about fellow entertainer Oprah Winfrey.
The rant kept ramping up more and more, leading to the eventual removal of the star from the stage, amidst the criticism of many of his fans.
He said: “I’m like, Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar, they can suck d— sideways. F— Oprah Winfrey and f— Kathie Lee Gifford.”
He added: “‘Well, I’m pretty sure Kid Rock’s a racist. I’m, like, ‘Fine. F— off,’ sideways. I’m not the bad guy in this equation. I’m the f––in’ guy you want, like, hey, he’s pretty cool.”
Rock later tweeted: “People tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey show years ago, and her people wanted me to write down five reasons why I loved her and her show… I said f— that and her. End of story.”
His words seem to have been very divisive, though, as many have also expressed their support for what he had to say, and he has managed to create some minor discussions online after the situation.
The problem boiled down to the vulgar nature in which Kid Rock expressed his opinion about Oprah, something which did not sit well with the event’s organizers.
It is not clear if his actual message was the reason for his removal, but that does not seem to be the case.
In fact, nobody seemed to show any interest in getting him off the stage until the expletives started coming out in full force.
The incident has been a divisive one among fans of Kid Rock, with many exclaiming that he might have gone too far, while others have been defending him actively on the Internet.
It is far from the first time that Kid Rock has generated controversy with his actions, and while it is hard to tell if he is doing it on purpose, he seems to know how to provoke a response in his audience, one way or another.
It remains to be seen how this incident will impact him in the long run.
In the past, he attacked Taylor Swift, The View co-host Joy Behar, and TV presenter Kathie Lee Gifford.
