Kid Rock defends Confederate flag amid protests

Apparently, former rap-rocker Kid Rock just can’t get enough of being on the wrong side of troll-baiting.

Not that having #BeyHive fans placing thousands of bee emojis on every single Instagram post he makes in the aftermath of some unflattering comments about Beyoncé was enough, but now the “Devil Without A Cause” singer has taken up the cause of defending the Confederate flag.

Michigan’s chapter of the National Action Network recently held a protest outside of the Detroit Historical Museum, which currently has “The Kid Rock Music Lab” collection on display, because of the singer’s use of the flag. Rock responded via conservative champion Fox News with a message as clear as day.

“Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my a–,” Rock said flatly.

Since his heyday as an artist in late ’90s and early 2000’s, Rock has left his hometown of Detroit and since moved to Alabama and befriended staunch conservatives like Ted Nugent and toured with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, both of whom make no secret of their love for the Confederate flag.

Thus far, unlike the Bill Cosby backlash where people are dropping ties with the embattled comedic icon left and right, there are some like the Historic Museum, who aren’t ready to completely distance themselves from the controversial artist just yet.

The Kid Rock Music Lab is one of 10 permanent exhibitions at the Detroit Historical Museum,” the museum told television station WXYZ. “Kid Rock’s contribution to Detroit’s music history is significant and warrants his inclusion along with other key figures like Stevie Wonder, Bob Seger, Aretha Franklin and Eminem. There are no displays of the Confederate flag in the Kid Rock Music Lab or anywhere else inside the Detroit Historical Museum.”

What do you think? Should the Detroit Historical Museum do away with all Kid Rock-affiliated work in light of his stance on the Confederate flag?

    1. I like KID ROCK, and don’t have a problem with him WANTING the Confederate FLAG.

      We all have our OPINIONS! Let’s just let him come back to Detroit and see how welcomed he is.

  1. He’s such a poser and a tool. I can understand southerners identifying with the flag but he’s from Detroit! I wonder if he even sees the black kid he had with the porn star. What a loser!

  2. first off kid rock started out a struggling rapper , who took a little rock n roll approach , something eminem didnt have to do cause he actually could rap , once rap music failed him and black rappers start laughing at him and refuseing to collaborate with him he got bitter at blacks dropped his rap antics and horrible rap tunes and started moonlighting as a kizz, bruce springstien journey, wanna be ,, still not quite accepted by rock legends , he started to try to cozy up with bebe king and some blues legends , they kicked him to the curve to ..leaving him moonlighting at smoky bars down south with unheard of rock groups for a couple of hundreds a night , and singing karaokee at the bizzycow lounge in alabama lol .. so WHO THE FUCK CARES WHAT HE THINK , HE LUCKY IF HE CAN PACK OUT A COLLEGE .. CAUSE SINCE PAMALA ANDERSON SEXED HIM .. NO ONE CARE TO HEAR ANYTHING HE HAS TO SAY . .SO WHY PRINT THIS EVEN CNN , OR FOX NEWS DONT CARE ? ABOUT HIM SO WHY SHOULD WE

  3. IM tired of people like him trying to rebuild a career by stirring up controversy at the expense of offending a race of people who already has suffered for 500 years by the hands of slave owner descendents , what do white want papers on us still? , before we can be free.. you gotta own us first make us buy our freedom??? and then sh..t on us again . . please , kid rock need to study his history books that flag, was the last thing black men saw as they were hung from trees , in the south , where this flag was birth , , and the kkk used it as a rebel cause against blacks to intimidate and scare us in to submission, , not against no yankees it was against the black race ., kkk carried that flag to hunt and kill blacks that was their symbol , they burnt this flag in front of folks houses , so that flag dont mean freedom it means oppression continues .. so tear them all down accross this country … it would be a start to healing a nation battered and soaked his hatred. FU…K GHETTESBURG JUST A BUNCH OF WHITES FIGHTING OVER NOTHING IMPORTANT PERIOD
