Despite receiving an invitation from Joy Behar to share a beer with her on “The View,” Kid Rock is at risk of being disinvited from his role as grand marshal of the Nashville Christmas Parade.
As we reported earlier today, Rock referred to Behar as “that Joy Behar bitch” during a live interview this morning on Fox News, prompting apologies from Fox’s Steve Doocy and others. While Behar didn’t seem especially put out when the incident was mentioned on “The View,” her co-hosts expressed outrage.
Now the AP reports that Nashville Mayor David Briley’s office says he’s “inclined not to participate” in the Nashville Christmas Parade if Kid Rock remains in place as grand marshal. The privately run event is scheduled to take place Saturday.
“Mayoral spokesman Thomas Mulgrew said Briley was disgusted by Kid Rock’s comments about Behar,” the AP reports. “He said Nashville is an inclusive place and Briley doesn’t want to be included in a parade with a grand marshal who says hateful things on national television.”
