Kid Rock accused of ‘slut-shaming’ Taylor Swift after posting politically charged tweet

Only God knows why Kid Rock decided to tweet about Taylor Swift’s political leanings, but the internet is stirred up today over the country rock singer’s attack on America’s pop princess.

The stand alone tweet reads: “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. -Kid Rock.”

Hollywood came to Swift’s defense, calling Kid Rock a misogynist and accused him of “slut shaming” the singer.

Personally, I love this one.

Sheryl Crow, who did a duet with Kid Rock back in the early 2000’s weighed in as well.

So what prompted this?

Maybe it was a recent interview with Vogue where Taylor talked about not endorsing Hillary Clinton in 2016?

Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement. He was going around saying, I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you. I just knew I wasn’t going to help. Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was She’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. 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.

Whatever the case, it sounds like Kid Rock needs to calm down.
