After calling bar patrons “f—ing f—–s”, Kid Rock didn’t do himself any favors with this ‘apology tweet’.
Kid Rock’s name has been in the news a lot lately… mostly for interesting happenings at his Nashville establishment, Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock & Roll Steakhouse. Morgan Wallen’s return to performing after a racial slur controversy. A drunk patron getting arrested for swinging his filled colostomy bag at employees and customers. But this time Kid Rock got himself in hot water.
Last weekend during a performance at a different bar, Kid Rock used a homophobic slur at those customers who were shooting video on their phones. Yesterday, he ‘apologized’.
If Kid Rock using the word faggot offends you, good chance you are one. 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

Dude. It’s Pride Month, FFS. The “some of my best friends are ____” defense is always BS during any month; and I’m willing to bet those LGBT friends would encourage a legitimate apology. Unless Kid Rock is asking to be cancelled as part of some weird PR move?
And to those people still using the gay f-word as an insult, STOP. That ish was tired twenty years ago.
