TN: Kid Rock addresses use of homophobic slur … by using it again in a tweet

Source: Fox News

“Kid Rock took to Twitter to double down on his controversial use of a homophobic slur during a recent concert appearance. The outspoken rocker, 50, caught backlash after he took the stage inside the FishLipz Bar and Grill in Smithville, Tenn. and mocked onlookers who dared to record his set. The ‘Biker Boyz’ actor reportedly shouted ‘f—k your iPhone’ before using the other ‘f’ word to deride his crowd. ‘You f—ing f—–s with your iPhones out!!!’ he yelled, according to footage obtained by TMZ. On Wednesday, the performer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, went on Twitter to address the situation, where he remained unapologetic in his use of the slur. However, he did distance himself from his ‘Kid Rock’ persona a bit by sharing a quote on behalf of ‘Bob Ritchie.'” (06/10/21)
