Kid Rock went on a lengthy tirade last week at his Honky Tonk & Rock N' Roll Steakhouse in Nashville on Thursday, USA Today reports. The country rocker could be seen in a video bashing the former talk show host, as well as The View host Joy Behar and Kathy Lee Gifford, "Oprah Winfrey is like 'Hey, I want to get some white women to believe in this (expletive)," Kid Rock said, repeating lewd expletives. "And if you say that, you're like, 'Hey, well I'm pretty sure Kid Rock is a racist.' I'm like, okay fine. (Expletive)." According to TMZ, the singer "appeared to be hammered," and had to be helped off the stage by security. The outlet also reports that some in the crowd did not agree with his assertion that just because he doesn't like Oprah, he's not racist. On Friday Kid Rock tried to clarify his reasons for disliking Oprah in a tweet: "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**k that and her. End of story."
