Oh boy, this doesn’t look good for Kiiiiiid Rock.
He’s taking a lot of heat (deservedly so?) for a very-NSFW rant that went after Oprah, Joy Behar and then turned to Taylor Swift.
Here’s a portion:
Here's more detail, from Fox News:
Kid Rock slammed Oprah Winfrey during a foul-mouthed, drunken rant at a Tennessee bar this week.
The 48-year-old musician was at the Big A-- Honky Tonk Rock N' Roll Steakhouse in Nashville -- which he owns -- when he yelled into the microphone, "F--- Oprah. Oprah Winfrey is like 'Hey, I just want women to believe in this sh--'. F--- her. She can s--- d--- sideways," according to video obtained by TMZ.
"And if you say that, people say, 'Hey, I'm pretty sure Kid Rock's a racist.' I'm, like, 'OK, fine'. F--- off'," he added.
Kid, real name Robert James Ritchie, also took aim at "The View" co-host Joy Behar before he turned over the mic. "I'm not a bad guy, I'm just an honest guy saying I don't like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar," he said.

Back in 2008, Kid made his feelings about Oprah known. He told The Independentmagazine, "I just don’t believe her. Maybe it's because I'm not one of the 150 million brainwashed women who heed her every word."
The crowd didn't approve of Kid's message. In the video, someone can be heard saying, "He's racist. Look at him he's blacked out drunk as f---.'"
More recently, in August, the entertainer slammed Taylor Swift on social media because he disliked a tweet she wrote about her political beliefs and why she's become more vocal about issues that are important to her.
"Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies....period," Kid wrote on Friday.
Rock then implied Swift, 29, would perform a sexually suggestive act to get in the good graces of "Hollyweird" before he concluded it was the "oldest move in the book. Good luck girl."
And from The Wrap:
Kid Rock had a normal one earlier this week at the bar he owns in Nashville, when he decided to go off on a sexist slur-laden tirade against several female media figures, until he was helped offstage by some stagehands.
The weird episode was captured in video taken by attendees of a concert held at Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville, and later posted online by TMZ. In the video Rock, who wasn’t actually a performer on the bill, appears to have had quite a bit to drink and then decided to take advantage of the fact that he owns the joint to take the stage and deliver some unprepared remarks to concertgoers. Which is where things got weird.
“I’m like, Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar, they can suck d— sideways,” Rock tells the disbelieving crowd as he mimes pushing someone’s head to his, uh, pelvic area. Later in the video, he adds another famous name to his burn list. “F— Oprah Winfrey and f— Kathie Lee Gifford,” Rock says, prompting someone in the crowd to remark, “He’s racist. Look at him he’s blacked out drunk as f—.”
Rock seemed particularly stuck on the “sideways” imagery; he not only said it a second time while talking about Oprah, he also used it in context with his potential critics. “And if you say that, people say, ‘Hey, I’m pretty sure Kid Rock’s a racist,'” Rock continued. “I’m, like, ‘OK, fine’. F— off.'”
Near the end of the video, which was clearly edited down, Rock told the bewildered audience that he’s “not the bad guy in this equation, I’m the f-in’ guy you want, like, hey, he’s pretty cool.” Which, OK. Watch the whole clip above.
And from TMZ:
The country rocker went on a wild tirade last week at his own Honky Tonk bar in Nashville -- which apparently overserved their boss, 'cause the man was clearly intoxicated as he blasted O from the stage ... saying, "F*** Oprah!" and other vulgarities we won't repeat.
Check out the video, 'cause it's truly an ugly sight to behold. He lays into Oprah repeatedly and then goes on to attack Joy Behar and Kathy Lee Gifford. We don't know why he might've gone after Kathy, but he and Joy had beef last year -- he even called her a bitch on TV.

Rock then added fuel to the fire when he later tweeted this additional info.
It appears he is not backing down from his opinions:
