Kid Rock’s criticism of famous talk show presenter Oprah Winfrey has gone viral. Following Winfrey’s support of Democrat John Fetterman in his Senate run against Dr. Mehmet Oz, Rock called her a liar.
On November 5, Rock remarked in a tweet:
“Oprah aided Dr. Oz’s career.” I’m guessing because she investigated him and discovered him to be a nice guy. She is now working against him. Oprah is a liar. – “Child Rock.”
The message, which finally became viral, was retweeted over 10,000 times. John Fetterman and Dr. Mehmet Oz are poised to face off in the Keystone State Senate election, and a survey shows that Oz is ahead. Rachel Tripp, a senior communications advisor for the Oz campaign, said to Fox News in an email that Oz admires Winfrey and understands that they have opposing political views.
In addition, the email stated:
“He feels that Washington needs more balance and less radicalism.”
“We’re better off without you,” tweets one Twitter user in response to Kid Rock’s comments.
Netizens were outraged by Kid Rock’s remark regarding Oprah Winfrey.
Make better music or I’m no longer listening

Speaking of frauds, dude that was born to millionaire father in Michigan and pretends to be a poor southerner to sell his crappy music to people that steal catalytic converters.

The video quickly went viral, and Rock subsequently said in a tweet that he was being candid about his feelings. According to Rock, his team tried unsuccessfully to get him on The Oprah Winfrey Program a few years ago, and her staff asked him to write out why he admired her and her show. When questioned about the diatribe on Tucker Carlson Originals, Rock said that he would not apologize to anybody and that he is not a fan of Winfrey. He did, however, admit that he was dissatisfied with anything he said about Kathy Griffin. He stated:
“I was going to go after Kathy Griffin for putting up Trump’s skull, but I’m so out of it that I’m like, ‘f*** Kathie Lee Gifford.’” I’m like, ‘Oh man, I like Kathie Lee Gifford.’ When it comes back on TMZ or whatever a few weeks later, I’m like, ‘Oh man, I like Kathie Lee Gifford.’ Throughout the years, we’ve been pals.”
Despite the fact that Oprah has never reacted to Kid’s criticism, the latter has persisted to speak about her on several occasions.
