KID Rock has refused to apologize to Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar – years after he hurled abuse in a boozy tirade.
But, he regretted targeting the comic Kathie Lee Gifford during the infamous 2019 Nashville steakhouse rant as he said he meant to refer to Kathy Griffin.
In the clip obtained by TMZ, Rock yelled “F**k Oprah” before hurling abuse.
He then targeted The View host Behar as he apparently tried to prove he wasn’t racist.
And, he also shouted, “f**k Kathie Lee Gifford”.
More than two years after the rant, Rock revealed all on the Fox Nation series Tucker Carlson’s Originals.
Rock doubled down when quizzed on the remarks by Carlson.
He said: “A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts, I own what I said.
“I don’t apologize to anybody. I’m not an Oprah Winfrey fan. I got drunk and fkin next thing, I’m on stage [saying] fk Oprah.”
But, he said he felt a “little bad” after targeting Gifford.
Rock previously branded Oprah his “real-life villain” in a 2008 interview with The Independent.
He claimed she “rubbed him up the wrong way”.
He told the outlet: “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.”
The drunken rant wasn’t the first time Rock and Behar had clashed.
During a 2018 Fox and Friends interview with Steve Doocy, Rock called her a “b****”.
He hurled the insult while he and the journalist were discussing politics, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.
Rock said: “The division in the country right now, it’s so hard for people just to get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another. God forbid you say something wrong.”
He said he would “love” everybody except Behar before insulting her.
Doocy interrupted Rock and said: “We apologize for that.
“Listen she’s just got a different point of view than you do.
“We don’t feel that way. We apologize for both.”
And, journalist Ainsley Earhardt also apologized after the interview.
She said: “We don’t condone that language.”
In a Facebook post, Rock apologized for swearing live on-air.
But, he vowed not to apologize for the sentiment of his remarks.
He said: “Mess with the bull, you get the horns. End of story.”
Behar clapped back against Kid during an episode on the View where she celebrated her 20th anniversary.
She called on Rock to go after “big shots” rather than targeting her.
Behar even invited the artist for a drink.
She quipped: “This b* and these b*** will be happy to have you on the show and have a beer.”
Ana Navarro chipped into the conversation and said: “If he’s gonna call you a b**** the least he can do is show up here with Blue Label.”
Blue Label is a type of Scottish whiskey.
And, Rock and Behar clashed again after a photo of the country singer at the White House went viral.
Rock, singer Ted Nugent and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin were snapped alongside former President Donald Trump at the White House.
The three also posed in front of a portrait picture of Hillary Clinton – who was defeated by the brash New Yorker in November 2016.
She asked the audience: “Is this the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground?”
In 2015, Rock told The Guardian he is “definitely” a Republican on fiscal and military issues.
He once claimed that Trump asked him for his advice on how to deal with North Korea and Islamic State.
