The 50-year-old "Cocky" musician was recently filmed confidently using the homophobic word while onstage at a bar in Tennessee, which sparked backlash online.

In the video published by TMZ, Kid Rock is seen holding a microphone and berating fellow patrons who were filming him.

At one point, he looks directly into a camera lens and yells, "F--- your iPhone, yeah. You can post this."

He then makes a crude hand gesture and sings, "You can post this d--- right now," before yelling, "You f---ing f-----s with your phones."

A representative for Kid Rock didn't respond to Insider's request for comment.

Kid Rock is no stranger to controversy. He was one of few celebrities to endorse former President Donald Trump and joined his reelection campaign in 2020. The year prior, he was kicked offstage in his own Nashville bar for a drunken rant about Oprah, Joy Behar, and Kathie Lee Gifford.
