Kid Rock defiant about gay slur drama

Kid Rock defiant over slur

Kid Rock is refusing to take the controversy brewing about his gay slur seriously, joking he'll have a chat with himself about the drama.

He was performing at the FishLipz Bar & Grill in Smithville, Tennessee on Saturday when he lost his cool with audience members filming him on their cellphones.

Concertgoers videoed Kid Rock shouting "f**k your iPhone" and calling audience members "f**king f**gots." The footage was obtained by TMZ and went viral on Monday, prompting gay rights activists to demand an apology from the rap-rocker.

Instead, on Wednesday, Kid Rock tweeted: "If Kid Rock using the word f**got 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."

He signed off as Bob Ritchie, Kid Rock's real name.

Last month, he found himself embroiled in a race row after showing support for fellow musician Morgan Wallen, who was suspended from his label and axed from country music stations after he was filmed using the N-word during a night out with friends. Kid Rock offered Wallen his first gig following the controversy at his Nashville bar.
