Kid Rock defends salacious Oprah rage on Tucker Carlson show

The self-proclaimed “American Bad Ass” refuses to change his mind.

Despite fierce backlash, Kid Rock refuses to back down from his boozy 2019 tirade in which the rocker attacked Oprah Winfrey by name during a performance in Nashville.

The 51-year-old rapper dropped the bombshell during the latest episode of “Tucker Carson Originals” on Fox Nation.

“A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts — I own what I said,” the singer, whose real name is Robert James Richie, told conservative pundit Carlson, 53.

The “Redneck Paradise” rock referenced the infamous 2019 incident in which he vandalized the billionaire media mogul on the stage at the honky tonk bar he owns in Nashville.

“Oprah Winfrey says, ‘Hey, I just want women to believe this shit,'” the “Cowboy” singer said in the video uploaded by TMZ. “Fk her, she can suck dk sideways.”

“I don’t apologize to anyone. I’m not a fan of Oprah Winfrey.”

Then, to prove he wasn’t “racist,” Rock also blasted The View host Joy Behar, ranting, “I’m not a villain, I’m just an honest guy and I’m saying I don’t like Oprah, Winfrey, or Joy Behar.”

The explosive-laden soapbox session ended with the Trump supporter being carried off the stage by security. Meanwhile, Rock’s Detroit restaurant, Made In Detroit, closed amid backlash against his profane tirade.

Despite the outrage, the outspoken musician is sticking to his guns.

“I don’t apologize to anyone,” the musician explained when asked about the incident. “I’m not a fan of Oprah Winfrey. I got drunk and next thing I’m on stage [saying] f— Oprah.’”

The Post has reached out to Winfrey for comment on Rock’s comments.

Elsewhere in the interview, That Night, Rock addressed another embarrassing slip, in which he mistakenly blasted TV host Kathie Lee Gifford while intending to attack comedian Kathy Griffin for her mock beheading of then-President Donald Trump.

“I’ve been trying to go after Kathy Griffin, you know, for holding Trump’s head up, but I’m so messed up I’m like ‘fk Kathie Lee Gifford,'” the rueful rocker said. “If it comes back a few weeks later on TMZ or whatever, I’m like, ‘Oh man, I like Kathie Lee Gifford.'”

The “Let’s Go Brandon” singer added, “We’ve been kind of friends all these years… now I feel a little bad.”

This isn’t the first time Rock has doubled down on controversial comments. In an infamous incident last year, the rioter responded to backlash over previous homophobic remarks – by repeating the same insult that was troubling him in the first place.
