The 48-year-old creator sparked conflict on Friday, when launching a sexist attack on Taylor Swift. Kid Rock accused the singer of adopting left-leaning political opinions as a way to propel her motion picture career, and recommended she was willing to trade sexual favors to ascend in Hollywood.
Saying in a tweet:
“Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period,” Rock tweeted. “And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl” – Kid Rock
Twitter users instantly came to Swift’s defense, and commenced trashing Kid Rock for his sexist comments. several additionally criticized the 48-year-old’s own political beliefs, and the indisputable fact that he has aligned himself with racists political figures, like President Donald Trump. They also took jabs at his age, receding hairline, his faux-red neck act, and general unconnectedness.
Above are just a few from all the comment from the tweet made by Kid Rock; guess he pick the wrong fight here and from all indication, it lost battle… lols!
Rock tweeted the attack a day after Swift’s Vogue cover story was released. although the singer has become progressively political over the past year—supporting variety of Democratic politicians and donating to left-leaning organizations—she caught heat for her unwillingness to endorse a presidential candidate in the last election. Swift explained her reluctance to Vogue.
“Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement,” she said, referencing President Trump. “He was going around saying, ‘I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you.’ I just knew. I knew I wasn’t going to help. Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was: ‘Taylor Swift’s calculated. She’s manipulative. She’s not what she seems. She’s a snake. She’s a liar.’ These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary Clinton.”
She further said:
“Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women. The two nasty women. Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses.”
