Kid Rock pulled from Nashville Christmas Parade following TV outburst

Kid Rock

Rock star Kid Rock gave some very unfiltered remarks during his appearance on "Fox & Friends" Friday morning. "I would say, 'Love everybody, ' except I'd say, 'Screw that Joy Behar bitch'".

"I think the president is doing a great job with his policies".

"You know the division of the country right now, it's so hard for people to just get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another", Kid Rock told Doocy.

Instead, the parade has invited the man hailed as a community hero for wrangling a gun away from the shooter during a deadly Nashville Waffle House shooting in April.

"God forbid you say something a little bit wrong, you're racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, this that and another". He was immediately reproached by "Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy.

"People need to calm down, get less politically correct", Rock said on the show.

Naturally, all of this didn't sit too well with the city, who had previously appointed Kid Rock as the Grand Marshal of Saturday morning's big downtown Christmas parade.

"All I can say is, this b***h and these b****es would be happy to have you on the show and have a beer", she said with a smile.

The annual Christmas parade will air on News 2 Saturday.

She won the support of Meghan McCain who said: 'I don't agree with calling any woman a b**** for having a political opinion, people do it to me all the time.

Prior to the announcement about Shaw being honored, Nashville Mayor David Briley said he was "leaning toward" skipping the event if Kid Rock remained the grand marshal. "My parade has been rained on", he wrote. "Mess with the bull, you get the horns".

Early in the morning, Rock addressed the situation on his Facebook page, expressing his intent to still enjoy the parade.

"I did apologize for the language, not the sentiment", Kid Rock said, laughing, clad in sunglasses while clutching another unidentified drink in a styrofoam cup.
