Disney CEO Bob Iger was confronted on Thursday about his company’s stance on ABC stars Jimmy Kimmel and Joy Behar having previously worn blackface. At a Disney shareholder meeting in St. Louis, Iger fielded a question from Justin Danhof — general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank — who pressed the CEO on Kimmel and Behar wearing blackface. “Mr. Iger, with all of the pride that you place on racial diversity at Disney — and I am specifically recalling the pride that you expressed last year at this meeting and in many media interviews about the success and importance of Black Panther — I find it puzzling that the company seems ok with Kimmel’s and Behar’s previous racist actions,” Danhof said. “Can you comment on their use of blackface? And are they held to a different standard than politicians and newscasters because they are comedians?” After the confrontational … [Read more...] about LISTEN: Disney CEO Bob Iger Confronted on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel and Joy Behar Using Blackface

click to enlarge Another day, another diarrhea of the mouth moment for Kid Rock. This time spewing into the perfect receptacle for the Michigan rap-rockers hypocritical rhetoric: Fox News network's chaotic morning program, Fox & Friends. Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy interviewed Rock at his Nashville bar Friday morning touching on hot-button issues like politics, and mainly just politics. Because who better suited to discuss such things than the man that only as of last week had dodged election violations for his fake political bid for U.S. Senate last year because the Federal Election Commission deemed an investigation a waste of F.E.C. resources? Well, maybe not Kid Rock, actually. During the segment Kid Rock plays bartender for a rowdy bunch of breakfast drinkers — even taking a swig from the bottle, himself because as the news ticker suggests, 'Rock' and Roll. He also took a moment to praise President Donald Trump's time in office because that's what you do … [Read more...] about Kid Rock calls Joy Behar a bitch on ‘Fox & Friends’, praises Trump, and swigs whiskey — all before 8 a.m.
Brian McCollum Detroit Free Press Published 1:21 PM EST Nov 30, 2018 Kid Rock managed to provoke a firestorm Friday while appearing in friendly television territory. Speaking live with "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy, the Michigan-bred rocker labeled liberal comedian Joy Behar a "bitch" while discussing the modern political climate. "God forbid you say something a little bit wrong — you’re ‘racist,’ ‘homophobic,’ ‘Islamophobic,’ this, that and the other," Rock said. "People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct. I would say love everybody — except I’d say screw that Joy Behar bitch." "You cannot say that," Doocy replied. "I mean 'lady,' " Rock said. Pushed by Doocy to apologize for the language, Rock responded: "I did apologize for the language. Not the sentiment." "We don't feel that way," Doocy said. "We apologize for both." Appearing on ABC's "The View" later Friday morning, … [Read more...] about Kid Rock calls Joy Behar a ‘b****’ live on TV; Behar reacts
Joy Behar kicked off The View on Friday by reacting to Kid Rock calling her a “bitch” during an interview with Fox News. “All I can say is this bitch and these bitches will be happy to have you on the show and have a beer,” Behar responded. “Come on down.” Abby Huntsman, who used to co-host Fox & Friends, gave props to Steve Doocy for apologizing on the network’s behalf after Rock’s insult. Behar wondered what even compelled Rock to go after her personally, to which, Meghan McCain responded “you’re a very powerful voice in this country.” McCain agreed with Sunny Hostin that Rock insulted the entire panel by going after Behar, and Behar thanked her as McCain continued to say that Rock should practice what he preaches about political civility. Behar finished by saying that she couldn’t decide which was the better gift to her: Fox’s apology over the incident or the news about Michael Cohen and Robert … [Read more...] about Joy Behar Responds to Kid Rock Attacking Her on Fox News: ‘This Bitch’ Will Be ‘Happy to Have You On’ The View
Joy Behar tore into Republican leadership Thursday for staying silent on President Donald Trump‘s rhetoric. During a discussion of this week’s bomb scares on The View, Behar called out Republicans for not condemning Trump. “I think that it’s incumbent upon the Republicans in this country to start to speak out,” Behar said. “Because as long as there is silence from [Sen. Mitch] Mcconnell (R-KY) and [Rep. Paul] Ryan (R-WI) and [Sen. John] Barrasso (R-WY), and [Sen. Orrin] Hatch (R-UT) and all those guys, there will always be a reaction. They have to now speak out against this.” “They did not open their mouths when he attacked your father,” Behar added — addressing her colleague Meghan McCain and referencing Trump’s taunts against the late Senator John McCain. “They did not open their mouths when he attacked a Gold Star family, or he said he was going to grab women by their genitals, or when he said the Second … [Read more...] about Joy Behar Bashes GOP Leaders For Staying Silent on Trump Rhetoric: ‘They are the Perpetrators Also!’
