Kid Rock trashes Taylor Swift in sexist tweet

BTW

Kid Rock, a would-be Senate candidate, and musician who supports President Donald Trump denigrated Taylor Swift in a sexist tweet on Friday, accusing the Grammy Award-winning singer of being a Democrat to boost her movie career.

Rock, who’s been open about his conservative leanings, got graphic, writing that she would “suck the door knob off Hollyweird” to be in the movies.

The 29-year-old Swift will soon appear in the much-anticipated film version of Cats, which is due later this year. She has yet to respond to the tweet publicly.

Rock hasn’t specified what sparked the nasty tweet. However, Swift’s just-released Vogue cover story features a discussion of her desire to utilize her voice for social change.

Earlier this year, Swift sent a letter to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) urging him to vote yes to the federal Equality Act, an amendment to the Civil Rights Act which would outlaw discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Of course, the internet had much to say about Rock’s tweet.
