Kid Rock is responding to the outcry over his use of a homophobic slur on stage by using it on Twitter as well.
Earlier this week, the rock rapper came under fire after TMZ posted a video showing him using an insult referring to gay people while performing at a Tennessee bar on Saturday night.
In the footage, Kid Rock notices members of the audience filming him with their phones and shouting, “Fuck fags with your phones out!” ”
Funny how fanatics always claim to have friends for any particular insult they throw at them.

I’ll correct the tweet for you: if Kid Rock uses the word [email protected], there is a good chance that deep down he is a cloister who hates himself for that. Either way, he shouldn’t be using the word. It is offensive. Period. Complete stop.

LGBT youth are seriously considering suicide at a rate almost three times that of heterosexual youth. Do not standardize the use of the F word. It really is a matter of life and death for some of these children. #LGBT #ally

Someone with gay friends wouldn’t use that word as an insult. Take advantage of the continued loss of fans and revenue.

Let’s see what’s going on with the so-called “cancellation culture” here.
If it exists, Kid Rock, after saying “grandpa” and doubling down, will no longer be commercially viable.
And yet… something tells me that it will be perfectly fine because “cancel culture” does not exist. https://t.co/bcEUn5lKic
