Former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin told ABC host Joy Behar to “suck it up, cupcake” and save her “crocodile tears” after the controversy with singer Kid Rock.
The former Republican Alaskan governor took to Facebook to ridicule Behar after the ABC host reacted with outrage after Rock called her a “b*tch” during an interview on Fox News.
“Buckle up,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. “Save the crocodile tears @joyvbehar – if you can dish it out you sure as heck better be ready to take it in.”
“You sat idly by, downright giddy, as guests on YOUR show called my daughter a hooker? You’ve said worse about me (and other women), but I’ve got other things to do than spend precious time googling it all,” she wrote.
Palin snapping on Behar came after Rock criticized political correctness and brought Behar into the conversation.
Rock made an appearance Friday morning on Fox News and made it very clear how he feels about Behar.
During a segment on “Fox & Friends,” co-host Steve Doocy asked the rock singer what he thought about President Donald Trump’s job performance and how he has been doing since taking office.
“I think the president’s doing a great job with his policies. I wish, you know, I heard you earlier in a bumper asking people what was their biggest concern, and mine would be just, you know, the division in the country right now,” Rock said.
“It’s so hard for people just to get past that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another,” he continued.
He then tore into Behar.
“You know, and just talk about things without going for each other’s throats and protesting everything and — God forbid you say something a little bit wrong — you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic. This, that and the other. People need to calm down, get a little less politically correct. And I would say, you know, love everybody,” he continued.
“Except I’d say screw that Joy Behar b*tch. Everybody but that,” Rock said, with members of the audience laughing and applauding.

Rock released a statement following the segment.
“Behar has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, and when myself, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent visited the White House last year, Behar called it ‘the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1814,’” Rock said.
“Today I said ‘Screw that Joy Behar b—h.’ Mess with the bull, you get the horns. End of story. I apologized for cursing on live TV, I will not for my sentiment nor do I expect an apology from her or anyone else who has choice words for me or doesn’t like me. God Bless America,” he added.
Behar responded by daring the singer to appear on “The View” to hash out their differences.
