Kid Rock hurls slur at fans in Tennessee bar, Internet slams 'typical straight White man behavior'
Rockstar Kid Rock, who earlier made headlines for his rant against Oprah Winfrey and Taylor Swift, was again in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. The renowned country musician was performing at a bar in Tennessee on Saturday, June 5, when he got irritated over the audience recording him with their phones.
The 50-year-old crooner then hurled slurs and pointed at his crotch while mocking his fans and asked them to post his junk, as reported by TMZ. The ‘Cowboy’ hitmaker was then trending on Twitter as many social media users slammed his inappropriate behavior. Speaking of slurs, country singer Morgan Wallen too got crucified on the internet in early 2021 after he used the N-word in a drunken rant.
What exactly did Kid Rock say?
According to TMZ, Kid Rock got irritated after a lot of his fans started recording him with their iPhones during his performance at the FishLipz Bar & Grill in Smithville, Tennessee. He then looked directly into one phone and said, "F**k your iPhone, yeah!" Well, the singer-songwriter did not stop there as he then screamed, “You f**king (f-slur) iPhones out!!!"
TMZ reported that security at the bar did try their best to ask the audience to put their phones down but Kid Rock took the matter in his own hands. This is not the first time when Kid Rock has gone on a rant on stage. In 2019, he roasted Oprah and Joy Behar, and other public figures while holding an alcoholic beverage in a cup at another bar.
‘Typical straight White man behavior’
The video of Kid Rock hurling homophobic slurs at the bar soon made it to the internet as a lot of social media users slammed him brutally. Speaking on the same lines, one user stated, “Kid Rock is trending because he is a no talent racist homophobic asshole. Just in case you were wondering.” Another shared, “I’m not surprised that Kid Rock is a homophobic bigot. I am surprised he is still performing.” One sarcastically added, “A country singer are we surprised,” whereas another tweeted, “Typical straight white man behaviour.”
The next one recalled, “Kid rock also said "Young ladies, young ladies, I like 'em underage see Some say that's statutory (But I say it's mandatory)" and got away with it.” One user tweeted about him being a Trump supporter, “He’s a trumpie, are we surprised?” One individual noted, “Not to mention he said he doesn’t support gay marriage a few years back” while another chimed in and shared, “He literally has a history of racism we aren’t surprised.” One user concluded, “Remember when Kid Rock said the N word freely on his album and y'all just let him?”
