Kid Rock doubles down on homophobic statements amid social media reactions after making anti-gay comments
‘If it offends you, chances are you are one!’: Kid Rock doubles down on homophobic slur after being filmed last week yelling ‘f****t’ at an audience
- Kid Rock doubled down on its use of an anti-gay slur on Wednesday, just days after it was criticized for using the same slur at a concert in Tennessee last week.
- “If Kid Rock uses the word f—-t, chances are you are one,” the 50-year-old tweeted on social media.
- Hardly unfamiliar with these kinds of controversies, the 50-year-old rocker used the N-word outside his home in January
- In November 2019, TMZ reported that the singer was removed from the stage after saying: ‘I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar, they can suck ad*** sideways’
- “I’m not a bad guy, I’m just an honest guy who says I don’t like Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar,” the Michigan resident said at the time.
Kid Rock is in trouble again for using an anti-gay slur for the second time in just five days after receiving an outraged response when he used the word on a show in Tennessee last week.
After massive backlash after using a homophobic comment at a concert on June 5, Kid Rock appears to be doubling down on his critics by using the same slur he used last week.
“If Kid Rock uses the word f––––t, chances are you are one,” says the 50-year-old tweeted On Wednesday, he signed the statement with his birth name, Bob Ritchie.
“Anyway, I know he has a lot of love for his gay friends and I’ll talk to him. Have a nice day,” he added.

The Michigan native was heard using the slur on a show at a bar in Smithville, Tennessee, after a music video showed him yelling anti-gay statements at the crowd.
According to a report by TMZ, the Cowboy singer was performing at FishLipz Bar & Grill when he lashed out at fans filming the show with their smartphones.
In a clip published by the outlet, the singer was holding a microphone when he heard the audience say, “You f***ing f*****s with your iPhones out,” and sang, “You can post this damn it here,” gesturing to his crotch.
“Funny how bigots always claim to have friends from whatever taint they throw,” commented one critic.
In 2019, TMZ reported that the singer was removed from his establishment’s stage after saying, ‘I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar…they can suck ad*** sideways’
Critics took to social media to criticize the country rocker for doubling down on his choice of words.
‘Someone with gay friends wouldn’t use that word as an insult’, a person tweeted. “Enjoy the continued loss of fans and revenue.”
“Funny how bigots always claim to have friends of whatever taint they throw,” commented another critic.
“What’s the stain on someone who hasn’t been relevant since 1998?” added a third person.
The ‘Cowboy’ singer is hardly unfamiliar with this sort of controversy, hosting Morgan Wallen’s first onstage appearance at his Nashville bar, Kid Rock’s Big A– Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in May, months after the country singer was heard using the N-word outside his home in January.
Nov 2019, TMZ reported that the singer was removed from his establishment’s stage after a vulgar diatribe in which he said, “I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar…they can suck ad*** sideways.”
He said he would say ‘f*** off’ to anyone who found his words racist, adding, ‘I’m not a bad guy, I’m just an honest guy, saying I don’t like Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar.’
