Several parade organizers announced today that the parade will no longer feature Kid Rock, who had volunteered to be the grand marshal.
Early in the morning, Rock addressed the situation on his Facebook page, expressing his intent to still enjoy the parade.
Organizers didn't cite Kid Rock's recent comments about Joy Behar, but chose instead to highlight Shaw's heroism and focus on the positives.
2.0 (Hindi) stars well, stability today is the key
Trade website Box Office India said the film was performing well in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, East Punjab, Bihar and Central India. The movie was released worldwide on November 29 and it has already come out tops not only in India, but overseas as well.
Shaw, an electrical technical, achieved internet stardom after he confronted a gunman during an April 2018 shooting at a Tennessee Waffle House that left four dead.
Kid Rock: I did apologize for the language, not the sentiment. Behar is a vocal critic of Donald Trump. Behar, for her part, invited Rock onto The View, saying, "This b***h and these b***es would be happy to have you on the show".
In a statement to ABC News after being ousted from the parade, Rock refused to apologise for insulting Behar.
Of course, Kid Rock was nonplussed and only double-downed on his sentiments, issuing another back-handed apology on Twitter in which he channeled his Joe Dirt villain, adding, "Mess with the bull, you get the horns".
Bryan Lewis, the attorney for Steve Smith, Kid Rock's business partner and "best friend", told Variety Friday night that the controversial performer was planning on showing up and fulfilling his duty as grand marshal Saturday morning.
During a Friday appearance on "Fox & Friends", the 47-year-old singer courted controversy when he appeared to bemoan respect for others as political correctness run amok.
