"Kid Rock threw an homophobic slur while singing at a bar? Wow, what a surprise," another echoed.

This comes after Kid Rock went on a disparaging rant against Oprah Winfrey at his Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in 2019 and also slammed Joy Behar and Kathie Lee Gifford. In the end, Rock was reportedly escorted off stage.

He reportedly refused to comply with Nashville's COVID-19 restrictions which would have saw the bar closed at the start of the pandemic and later complied, Yahoo! Entertainment noted.
