Kid Rock was removed as Grand Marshal of Nashville’s 2018 Christmas Parade, which took place on Saturday (December 1st), following backlash over comments he made during a television appearance on Friday morning (November 30th). Replacing him as Grand Marshall was James Shaw Jr., who thwarted a mass shooting at a Waffle House in Nashville in April. Rock was dismissed after his Friday appearance on Fox & Friends, which was shooting on location in downtown Nashville at Kid Rock’s newly opened Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse. After telling host Steve Doocy that people needed to come together and have calm civil discourse, he added, “I would say, love everybody. . . except screw that Joy Behar bitch.” Rock was replaced as Grand Marshall of the Nashville parade when both city councilman Freddie O’Connell and mayor David Briley suggested that they would not participate if Rock was involved.
