"I’m like, Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar, they can suck d--- sideways," Rock said, according to the video published on TMZ Friday.

“F--- Oprah Winfrey and f--- Kathie Lee Gifford,” he continued saying as someone in the audience described him as a "blackout drunk.” Rock continuously repeated the same phrases throughout his rant against Winfrey and other women who have hosted talk shows until he suddenly believed he would be accused of being racist based on his on stage remarks.
