Cancel culture warriors are coming for Kid Rock (again) after his expletive-laden rant at a group of fans using their phones to record him as he got on stage to perform at FishLipz Bar & Grill in Smithville, Tennessee last Saturday went viral.
Rock yelled, “F**k your iPhones. You can post this! You can post this d*ck right now! You f**king fa**ots with your phones.”
A crew member on stage can be seen in the video motioning for the crowd to put away their phones.
While the internet is calling him out for using a gay slur, this isn’t the first time Kid Rock, aka Robert James Ritchie, has been in hot water for rejecting political correctness and it certainly won’t be the last.
Listen below, but please note harsh language:
Kid Rock is like Teflon to the outrage. Controversy seems to roll right off the rockstar.
While that’s infuriating for some, Kid Rock fans love him despite his history of flagrant comments and appreciate his unapologetic authenticity, for better or for worse.
In 2019, a few too many drinks led to his drunken tirade against liberal elites. Rock got on stage and said “I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar. They can both suck d**** sideways” and “f*** Kathy Gifford.”
In 2018, Rock was barred from leading the Nashville Christmas parade after calling television host Joy Behar a “b*tch” while talking about unity on Fox News.
At a 2017 concert, Kid Rock ranted to the crowd on the country’s culture war, “If you want to take a knee or sit during our ‘Star-Spangled Banner:’ Call me a racist cuz I’m not PC and think you have to remind me that Black Lives Matter. Nazis, f*ckin’ bigots and now again the KKK, screw all you assholes, stay the f*ck away.”
Rock was criticized for using the word “gay” in a derogatory sense in an interview with “The Guardian” in 2015, “If someone says you can’t say ‘gay’ like that you tell them to go f**k themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me.”
If history is indicative of anything, Kid Rock’s embrace of unsavory language won’t stop anytime soon. Despite the controversy that has surrounded him over the years, he just keeps on rockin’.
Fans took to Twitter to comment:
So liberals are Triggered because Kid Rock told someone off at a Bar that pissed him off..
Get over yourselves… Good Grief..
