Kid Rock has addressed footage of himself using a homophobic slur during a performance in Tennessee by…using the same homophobic slur and he needs to make it make sense.

The expletive-laden footage, obtained by TMZ, showed the musician using the slur as he screamed at people filming the performance on his phone.

‘Fuck your iPhone!’ the musician – real name Robert James Ritchie – shouted, giving the attendee the middle finger in the clip.

Gesturing at his crotch, Kid Rock sang: ‘You can post this, you can post this d**k right now’ before going on to call the crowd the slur.

The rocker addressed the incident in a tweet sent from his official account under his real name, saying he has ‘a lot of love for his gay friends’ – although he did use the slur yet again.

‘If Kid Rock using the word f****t offends you, good chance you are one,’ the tweet began.

‘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.’

TMZ reports that he was performing at FishLipz Bar & Grill in Smithville, Tennessee.

It’s thought that security was asking people to put down their phones, but he decided to tell attendees himself.

It’s not the first time the 50-year-old has caused controversy with his onstage outbursts, after he hurled insults at chat show host Oprah Winfrey at a performance in 2019.

Kid Rock rose to fame with his country and rock music, including hits like Picture and All Summer Long.

He’s a controversial figure, previously coming under fire for his outspoken rants and his support for Donald Trump.
