Kid Rock brandished a gun and repeatedly used the N-word during an interview with Rolling Stone reporter David Peisner. The profile, published on Monday, detailed a visit to Rock’s estate outside Nashville. Rock’s political views were a frequent topic of discussion.

During the interview, Rock switched from sipping white wine to downing Jim Beam and Diet Cokes. “And I got a f*cking goddamn gun right here if I need it!” Rock shouted, waving a black handgun around. “I got them everywhere!” Peisner noted this while describing the singer’s increasingly erratic behavior throughout the conversation.

Kid Rock’s Controversial Language and Views

Peisner reported that Rock used the N-word multiple times, particularly during a conversation about rap music. “It’d be easy to label this as the rantings of a drunk racist,” Peisner wrote, “but as with everything that Ritchie does, it’s hard to know how calculated it all is.” Peisner wondered if Rock’s behavior was a ploy for attention or a reaction against cancel culture.

Rock’s controversial remarks didn’t stop there. He also mentioned his previous boycott of Bud Light, stating, “We’ve got bigger targets,” and cited Planet Fitness and Ben & Jerry’s as new targets due to their progressive policies. Despite his earlier stance, Rock admitted to drinking Bud Light again.

Rock expressed strong support for Donald Trump and discussed his own polarizing nature. “You think I like Trump because he’s a nice guy?” Rock said. “I want the guy who goes, ‘I’m going to fight with you.’” Rock also anticipated Trump winning the presidential race in Michigan, sharing his belief during an appearance with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

Reflecting on his legacy, Rock seemed indifferent to public opinion. “I don’t care,” he insisted, despite Peisner’s suggestion that he might care deeply about his image. “I really don’t give a f*ck.”

Peisner’s profile painted a picture of a man deeply entrenched in right-wing politics and divisive rhetoric, showing how Rock’s persona has shifted from a rebellious musician to a staunch culture warrior.
