KID ROCK Called Out For Vulgar Slam Of TAYLOR SWIFT

KID ROCK Called Out For Vulgar Slam Of TAYLOR SWIFT

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Kid Rock was called out on social media on Friday (August 9) after sending a crude tweet about Taylor Swift, implying her recent decision to speak out about LGBTQ rights and other political issues is a ploy to be cast in movies.

Rock, a diehard supporter of Donald Trump, tweeted: "Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period. And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl."

Swift has became politically engaged in recent months, after she was criticized heavily for her silence during the 2016 election. She told Vogue in a new interview: "Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement."

Rock was immediately slammed on Twitter for his comment, with Chrissy Teigen calling him "pathetic" and his one-time collaborator Sheryl Crow telling him to "spread love, not hate."

Another Twitter user wrote: "Literally any rock is better than Kid Rock. Fraggle Rock, Jailhouse Rock, The Rock, Chris Rock, a small rock that flew up from the road and cracked my windshield."

ProPublica's Jessica Huseman called out Rock on his alleged "working class" background, writing: "Kid Rock has crafted a careful imagine of himself as trailer park rapper from Detroit turned rich man of the people but his dad was a millionaire and his childhood was spent riding horses and picking apples on his estate."

Kid Rock's tweet has garnered more than 61,000 replies, 33,000 retweets and 148,000 likes,

At press time, neither representatives for Rock nor Swift had issued any comment.
