Kid Rock responds to shouts over his use of a homophobic slur on stage by also using it on Twitter.
Earlier this week, the rock rapper came under fire after TMZ released a video showing him using a slur referring to gays while performing at a Tennessee bar Saturday night.
In the footage, Kid Rock notices the audience members filming him with their phones and yelling, “You fucking fucks with your phones out!”
After Twitter users pointed out that his language was offensive, the singer responded with a tweet that he bizarrely attributed to “Bob Ritchie”
“If Kid Rock uses the word bassoon to offend you, you’re in for a treat. Either way, I know he has a lot of love for his gay friends, and I want to talk to him. Have a good day. -Bob Ritchie, ”he tweeted.
So far, no one who identifies himself as a gay friend of Kid Rock has commented on the homophobic tweet positively, but there were plenty of people who were happy to put him straight.
Another suspected Kid Rocks tweet could offer a litmus test of whether cancellation culture actually exists.
And one person had a message for both Kid Rock and Bob Ritchie.
