Being the consummate rebel, recording artist Kid Rock reacted just as you hoped he would when given an ultimatum over the Confederate flag.
Members of the Michigan chapter of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network held a protest in front of a Detroit museum Monday demanding the artist take a stand against the flag or they would boycott the facility.
The museum features an exhibit bearing the superstar’s name.
Kid Rock, who has used the flag at previous concerts, was quiet for a day or two. But that all changed when Fox News’ Megyn Kelly announced on Wednesday’s show that the artist gave her a message to share with his tormentors.
“He has shared with us a message for those who are demanding that he denounce the Confederate flag,” Kelly told her viewers. “And this is the quote: ‘Please tell the people protesting to, quote, kiss my … ask me some questions.'”

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, said at the time that he “never flew that flag with any hate in my heart.”
“Everybody knows where I stand and what I’m about,” he told the Free Press. “It’s not about hatred or being a racist. I like Southern rock music, and a lot of people died under that flag for beliefs they had, right or wrong. But it stands for rebel, and my love of Southern rock.”
