Kid Rock doubled down on his use of the f-slur in a strange tweet on Wednesday, which he wrote in the third-person narrative and signed with his real name.
"If Kid Rock using the word f----- offends you, good chance you are one," he wrote. "Either way, I know he has a lot of love for his gay friends and I will have a talk with him. Have a nice day. -Bob Ritchie"—Kid Rock (@KidRock) June 9, 2021
The 50-year-old "Cocky" musician was recently filmed confidently using the homophobic word while onstage at a bar in Tennessee.
In the video published by TMZ, Kid Rock is seen holding a microphone and berating fellow patrons who were filming them.
At one point, he looks directly into a camera lens and yells, "F--- your iPhone, yeah. You can post this."
He then makes a crude hand gesture and sings, "You can post this d--- right now," before yelling, "You f---ing f-----s with your phones."
A representative for Kid Rock didn't respond to Insider's request for comment.
Kid Rock is no stranger to controversy. He was one of few celebrities to endorse former President Donald Trump and joined his reelection campaign in 2020. The year prior, he was kicked offstage in his own Nashville bar for a drunken rant about Oprah, Joy Behar, and Kathie Lee Gifford.
