Kid Rock is calling out Oprah.
According to a report from The New York Post, musician Kid Rock shared a tweet over the weekend blasting television talk show icon Oprah Winfrey for endorsing Democrat John Fetterman over GOP candidate and frequent Oprah guest Dr. Mehmet Oz for Pennsylvania Senator.
“Oprah helped Dr. Oz with his career,” Kid Rock tweeted Saturday in a post that was retweeted over 10,000 times. “I assume because she vetted him and found him to be a wonderful person. Now she is against him. Oprah is a fraud. -Kid Rock.”
From The New York Post:
Winfrey, a Democrat, announced on Thursday that she is supporting Fetterman’s Senate campaign despite her long relationship with Oz.
Oz first came to prominence as a health expert on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” before he got his own talk show in 2009, which was produced by Winfrey’s company Harpo. His show ended in January.
“I’ll tell you all this, if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons,” Winfrey said during a virtual conversation with community leaders.
Fetterman’s campaign said Winfrey’s support for the Democrat over Oz “speaks volumes.”
“Oprah is widely regarded as the person who helped launch Dr. Oz’s career, and knows him well,” the campaign said.
Kid Rock, born Robert Ritchie, has been a vocal critic of Winfrey’s in the past, including an on-stage rant at his honky-tonk in downtown Nashville, where he told the crowd “f*** Oprah Winfrey” and “f*** Joy Behar.”
