Kid Rock Gets Skewered Online for NSFW Taylor Swift Comments About Being a Democrat

Kid Rock lashed out at Taylor Swift online after the "You Need to Calm Down" singer expressed her support for the democratic party in an interview for Vogue's September issue, with Rock making inappropriate and sexist comments directed at Swift's acting career as a result.

“Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period,” he tweeted on Friday. “And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.”

Rock is likely referring to the fact that Swift is appearing in the upcoming film adaptation of the musical Cats, which arrives in theaters in December, though she has had roles in multiple films throughout her career. The musician, a noted supporter of Donald Trump, received an onslaught of backlash for his comments, with many people not taking kindly to his words about the pop star.

Some people accused Rock of talking about Swift for publicity.

Swift opened up for one of the first times about her views in the interview, revealing that she did not publicly support Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election because she feared doing so might backfire due to her public perception at the time.

“Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women," she said. "The two nasty women. Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses.”

The 29-year-old also spoke about her support for the LGBTQ community, explaining that she was inspired to speak out after her friend Todrick Hall asked her what she would do if her son was gay.

“The fact that he had to ask me...shocked me and made me realize that I had not made my position clear enough or loud enough,” she said. “If my son was gay, he’d be gay. I don’t understand the question.”

“If he was thinking that, I can’t imagine what my fans in the LGBTQ community might be thinking,” she continued. “It was kind of devastating to realize that I hadn’t been publicly clear about that.”
