Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wasn’t holding back when she told Joy Behar to “suck it up, cupcake” and stop crying “crocodile tears” over a situation involving Kid Rock.
Sarah Palin appeared to have a score to settle with Joy Behar when the former GOP vice presidential hopeful jumped to her Facebook page to ridicule the host of ABC’s The View after Behar reacted with outrage over musician Kid Rock calling her a “b*tch” on live TV with Fox & Friends.
According to Breitbart, Palin was incredulous at Behar’s “mock outrage” over being called a b*tch, especially considering all the names she has called others. The former Republican governor did not forget the many slights she and her family received from the ABC host and took this opportunity to set the record straight.
“Buckle up,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. “Save the crocodile tears @joyvbehar – if you can dish it out you sure as heck better be ready to take it in,” she said. “You sat idly by, downright giddy, as guests on YOUR show called my daughter a hooker? You’ve said worse about me (and other women), but I’ve got other things to do than spend precious time googling it all,” Palin continued. “Joyless B – suck it up, cupcake,” she jabbed before adding a link to a report citing the time her daughter was called a “hooker” on The View.
Palin’s remarks were sparked by an interview where Kid Rock criticized Joy Behar and political correctness. “God forbid you say something a little bit wrong you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic,” Rock said on Fox & Friends. “People need to calm down, a get a little less politically correct, and, I would say love everybody. Except I’d say screw that Joy Behar b*tch, everybody but that.”
Rock later apologized for using the curse word but did not apologize for the sentiment he was trying to relay to viewers. In fact, the conservative rocker also mentioned Sarah Palin in a statement that he released, further explaining his remarks in that controversial interview.
“Behar has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, and when myself, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent visited the White House [in 2017], Behar called it ‘the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1814,’” Rock said in his statement. “Today I said ‘Screw that Joy Behar b*tch.’ Mess with the bull, you get the horns. End of story. I apologized for cursing on live TV, I will not for my sentiment nor do I expect an apology from her or anyone else who has choice words for me or doesn’t like me. God Bless America.”
Kid Rock also came under fire for remarks he made about Oprah Winfrey. Those remarks went viral on TMZ, showing an admittedly intoxicated Kid Rock on stage at a Nashville honky tonk, yelling, “F*ck Oprah Winfrey,” and, “F*ck Joy Behar!” He was accused of racism after his anti-Oprah rant, even though his son is half African-American.
Tucker Carlson questioned Kid Rock on his anti-Oprah rant during an episode in which the Fox News host received a tour of Kid Rock’s Nashville Ranch. “A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts,” Kid Rock told Carlson about the Oprah rant. “I own what I said and I won’t apologize to anybody. I’m not an Oprah Winfrey fan.”
The rocker continued to explain the Oprah rant to Carlson. “So, I got drunk and the next thing I’m on the stage and saying like ‘f*ck Oprah, suck my d*ck sideways!’” Kid Rock recalled. “The f*cked up part is I was trying to go after Kathy Griffin, you know, for holding up Trump’s head but I’m so out of it I’m like ‘f*ck Kathy Lee Gifford.’ When it comes back on TMZ or whatever a few weeks later, I’m like ‘oh man, I like Kathy Lee Gifford.’ We’ve been kind of friendly throughout the years.’”
The Michigan musician also explained why cancel culture can’t touch him. “Because I don’t give a f*ck,” Rock said. “I’m not in bed with any big corporate things at the end of the day there’s nobody I’m beholden to — no record companies, no corporate interests, no nothing. You can’t cancel me. I love it when they try.”
