First, he insulted Beyoncé, inciting a quick response from the Beyhive. Now Kid Rock has gone off his rocker again, this time thinking he can come for Oprah. Best of all, he believes that despite all his disparaging remarks, somehow people should take his word for it when he insists that he's not actually racist.
Page Six, while at his own Nashville-based restaurant, Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N' Roll Steakhouse, the musician unleashed a drunken tirade against the well-respected media executive and philanthropist.
“F**k Oprah!” Kid Rock is heard shouting in a video of the incident, posted by TMZ on Friday, November 29.
"Oprah Winfery's like, 'Hey! I'm gonna get some white women to believe in the s**t I' — f**k her. She can suck d**k sideways," he shamelessly continues, after also bashing other famous female talk show hosts, like Joy Behar and Kathy Lee Gifford.
"What?! He's racist!" a shrill voice shrieks in response to Kid Rock's vulgarities, presumably the anonymous filmmaker responsible for recording the obscene rant. Restaurant patrons can also be overheard booing the 48-year-old "Bawitdaba" singer from their seats.
Additionally, Kid Rock notes that he's aware people will likely label him as a racist for his unprecedented verbal attack against Winfrey. However, he appears apathetic to the notion of being classified as such.
“OK fine. F**k off — sideways,” he tells the audience, before busting into a sloppy rendition of "Proud Mary."
Eventually, security steps in to drag the musician and restaurant owner off stage.

Despite the overwhelming amount of heckling and boos the "All Summer Long" singer received, there were still a number of folks in attendance who seemed unfazed by Kid Rock’s remarks, even posing with him for selfies just before he was hauled off stage by bouncers.
On the same day TMZ released the footage of his rant, Kid Rock took to Twitter to explain the origins of his beef with Oprah.
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 fuck that and her. End of story.

“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,” he tweeted. “I said f**k that and her. End of story.”
He also followed up with a longer message on his Facebook page.
“I am just saying what a lot of people think. Not saying I should be, but sometimes I just do. Oh well. I have a big mouth and drink too much sometimes, shocker! I also work hard and do a ton to help others out but that’s just back page news because the press hates I love Trump, f**k them too. I am what I am, I ain’t what I ain’t!” the Facebook post reads. "PSSS. Was it racist when I said 'F**k Joy Behar'??? and by the way… I love Kathy Lee Gifford."
This isn’t the first time Kid Rock has voiced his distaste for Oprah. In a 2008 interview with The Independent, he identified the mogul as his idea of a “real-life villain,” explaining that he doesn’t like her “because I’m not one of the 150 million brainwashed women who heed her every word.”
