Kid Rock's Christening Of Little Caesars Arena Brings Out Scores In Protest

The offending "story" was actually a column written by the Detroit Free Press' editorial page editor, Stephen Henderson. "You want a quote, there it is", the artist's publicist Kirt Webster told the Free Press on Monday.
The National Action Network's Detroit chapter said Kid Rock's embrace of the Confederate flag, expletive-laced criticism of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and unabashed support for Donald Trump have no place in Detroit, where about 80 per cent of the city's 680,000 residents are black. "And in the context of the current national racial strife, born of racist torch marches, of presidential equivocations, and of a prolonged debate about the presence of racist history in our midst, I think the Kid Rock extravaganza at a new Detroit arena is absolutely nuts".

As expected, Kid Rock brought a political edge to his home town event, but despite all the fans wearing "Kid Rock for Senate" shirts, a recorded show intro calling him "the next senator of the great state of Michigan" and a political-style speech near the beginning of the set, Kid Rock made no official bid for office at the show. "You've never met a m*****f***** quite like me", Kid Rock said. "Gay rights, transgender this and that".
He added, "I am however very disappointed that none of the people, businesses or charities I have so diligently supported in Detroit have had anything to say about all these unfounded attacks from these handful of jacka**es and the Detroit Free Press. Because whatever you have between your legs should determine the bathroom that you use".
Demonstrators showed up at the arena to protest the concert, but it went on otherwise undisturbed.

It is not uncommon for performers to deny press credentials to members of the media because of poor concert or album reviews. Then again, the writer for the Detroit Free Press also accused Rock of "cultural appropriation" -immediately disqualifying the authority of anything he said. "To be published without doing any fact checking on what Kid Rock has done for the city of Detroit?". We don't condone bad behavior. But read my lips: We should not reward those who can't even take care of themselves but keep having kid after f***ing kid. At the end of "American Bad Ass" he displayed a photo of Little Caesars and Olympia Entertainment Mike Ilitch, saying, "You'll always be a true badass".
