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

    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.
