Mayor leans to­ward miss­ing Kid Rock-led pa­rade af­ter re­marks

New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - KICKOFF -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Nashville Mayor David Bri­ley’s of­fice says he’s “in­clined not to par­tic­i­pate” in a Christ­mas pa­rade if Kid Rock re­mains grand mar­shal.

The com­ment fol­lows a Fox & Friends in­ter­view Fri­day in which Kid Rock used an ex­ple­tive to de­scribe Joy Be­har of The View.

Mul­ti­ple Fox & Friends per­son­al­i­ties apol­o­gized. Kid Rock apol­o­gized for the lan­guage, but “not the sen­ti­ment.”

Kid Rock is slated to be grand mar­shal Satur­day in the pri­vately run Nashville Christ­mas Pa­rade.

May­oral spokesman Thomas Mul­grew said Bri­ley was disgusted by Kid Rock’s com­ments about Be­har. He said Nashville is an in­clu­sive place and Bri­ley doesn’t want to be in­cluded in a pa­rade with a grand mar­shal who says hate­ful things on na­tional tele­vi­sion.
