KID ROCK BREAKS SILENCE AFTER RANT Sunday December 1 2019, 6:10 AM

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 Ass 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 fuck 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: "Fuck Oprah . Oprah Winfrey is, like, 'Hey, I just want women to believe in this shit.' Fuck her. She can suck dick sideways."

He added: "And if you say that, people say, 'Hey, I'm pretty sure Kid Rock 's a racist.' I'm, like, 'Okay, fine'. Fuck off'."

The rocker also took aim at "The View" co-host Joy Behar during his appearance before he was reluctantly escorted offstage by the venue's security officials.

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 fuck," one person can be heard saying.

It's not the first time Kid Rock , a diehard supporter of Donald Trump , has spoken of his feelings towards Winfrey . Back in 2008, he told The Independent newspaper: " Oprah Winfrey , she rubs me up the wrong way. 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."

In November 2018, Rock blasted Behar during a "Fox & Friends" segment about Trump and political correctness.

"God forbid you say something a little wrong; you're racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, this that and the other. People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct," Rock said. "And I would say, you know, love everybody. Except I'd say screw that Joy Behar bitch, everybody but that."

The comment forced "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy to promptly suggest Rock "cannot say that." Rock then retracted his earlier sentiment, quipping: "I mean, lady."
