    Trying too hard to be an American bad ass? Kid Rock had some harsh words for critics this week, brushing off protesters who were rallying against him over the Confederate flag.

    The rocker, 44, was pulled into the debate over the Confederate battle flag this week. Critics of the flag emphasized Rock's history of performing in front of the controversial symbol as it was finally brought down from the South Carolina Capitol grounds.

    Members of the National Action Network, which is associated with Rev. Al Sharpton, made their message heard in front of the Detroit Historical Museum on Monday, July 6. The group protested the museum's exhibit on Kid Rock because of his use of the flag, calling on the musician to distance himself from it.

    The "All Summer Long" singer paid his critics little attention, releasing a statement to Fox News' Megyn Kelly as she read the story live on Fox News.



    After detailing the matter, Kelly said of Kid Rock, "He has shared with us a message for those who are demanding that he denounce the Confederate flag, and this is a quote, he said... 'Please tell the people who are protesting to 'Kiss my...''" Rather than say "ass" live on-air, Kelly subbed in "...ask me some questions," explaining, "I modified that for cable TV."

    Kid Rock defended the Confederate flag as recently as 2011, standing by his decision to sing in front of it at various concerts and festivals.



    Speaking at the NAACP's annual Fight for Freedom Fund dinner in Detroit in May 2011, the star said of the Confederate battle flag, "I've never flown that flag with any hate in my heart. Not one ounce."

    He's proof that you don't have to be racist to like the confederate flag. Doesn't he have a half blaek kid?

    He was in full-wigger mode when that happened, though.

    I quit listening to him before I started. I thought, "this is the kind of shit that kids in the 2000s are gonna call classic rock in a few years?"

    Fuck that. He's shit.

    Is he going to be able to withstand the barrage of media and blacks calling him racist ? Probably, but I dont know for sure.

    That was so bad, it's beyond description of just how bad. Of course, Howard (said he) loved it. At least Artie spoke up and said it was shit.

    He's just mad because he uses it as a prop of his country boy shit and now it'll be tougher to get away with it. If he were still a wigger rapper, he'd be on the other side. If he were a true rebel, he'd care none that there is a current backlash over the flag instead of turning into a cry baby. That's what fuels rebels, but he's no rebel. Since he's gotta make sure his CDs & t-shirts can be sold at Walmart, he's gonna have to compromise. And he will.

    What a fucking poser he is. He's from fucking DETROIT. He has as much in common with the flag as I do with sucking aids-infested cock, and I can tell you, I will never do that again!!!

    The music was there, but the lyrics just didn't have the intellectual depth of such lines as "It was 1989, my thoughts were short - my hair was long" and "We were trying different things. We were smoking funny things". Skynyrd and Zevon almost had something there, they just needed the touch of someone calling himself Kid Rock to really make it into something.

    He's worse, unless they switch to country and start bragging about how redneck they always were, too.
