Kid Rock out as grand marshal of Nashville Christmas Parade after controversial comments

Kid Rock is officially out as grand marshal of Saturday's Nashville Christmas Parade.

But he might show up anyway, even though sponsors have invited Waffle House mass shooting hero James Shaw Jr. to be the new grand marshal.

Late Friday three of the parade's main organizers stripped Rock of the title after the music star made controversial comments that morning, which quickly caused a public backlash and led Nashville's mayor to threaten sitting out of the event.

A split decision

But there's a split among the parade's sponsors over the decision. Steve Smith, the owner of several Lower Broadway bars that are co-organizers of the parade, vowed that Rock will be at the parade and will remain the grand marshal.

2. I wish they covered Donnie's nonsense like this

The story is all about the reaction and implications of him saying something offensive. You have to get through quite a bit of the article before you find out what he actually said.

When it's Donnie, of course they lead with what he said, and repeat it often, and add support from other hardcore republicans.

4. Why would someone from Detroit be a grand Marshall in Nashville?

6. Update...

Apparently the owner of Tootsies is suing to have Kid Rock reinstated. The owner says he wasn't consulted and they donated $250k to the parade...which is supposed to benefit Vandy Children's Hospital. SMDH. Our local ABC news had an online poll and 80% of people disagreed with removing Kid Rock. WTF is wrong with people here.
