Yikes, yikes, yikes, yikes.
Kid Rock left his feelings on Oprah (along with Joy Behar and Kathie Lee Gifford) absolutely clear, and then later took to Twitter to try and justify his offensive rant:
My people tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey show years ago and her people wanted me to write down 5 reasons w… https://t.co/5Vadcsipe0— Kid Rock (@Kid Rock)1575068169.0

After going on this rant, Rock appeared to be so drunk that he had to be helped off the stage by his own security.

It's unclear what exactly set Kid Rock off on his rant about Oprah and Behar, though this comment about Behar is one of many he's made over the years.
No further comment has been made by Rock or his team about the rant.
