Kid Rock appears to be standing behind his late-night stage tirade against Oprah Winfrey at a Tennessee bar.
On Friday (November 29), TMZ posted a video showing the rocker standing on stage in his Big A*s Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville while lashing out at Winfrey.
A few hours after the clip went viral, Kid Rock took to his Twitter to write:
“My people tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey show years ago and her people wanted me to write down 5 reasons why I loved her and her show… I said f*ck that and her. End of story.” He also added a LGBTQ flag emoji in the tweet, though it wasn’t clear why he did so.
In the video posted by TMZ, the 48-year-old musician could be heard saying into a microphone:
“F*ck Oprah. Oprah Winfrey is, like, ‘Hey, I just want women to believe in this sh*t.’ F*ck her. She can s*ck d*ck sideways.”
“And if you say that, people say, ‘Hey, I’m pretty sure Kid Rock‘s a racist.’ I’m, like, ‘Okay, fine’. F*ck off’.”
His vulgar comments didn’t appear to be received well by the crowd, which was reportedly waiting for live music to continue.
“He’s racist. Look at him. He’s blacked out, drunk as f*ck,” one person can be heard saying.
