Appropriate enough for the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Michael Rapaport spent part of his Monday reflecting on the values of America — and spitting an obscenity-laced history lesson in Kid Rock’s direction.
On the same day that “Devil Without a Cause” musician and possible future senatorial candidate Rock issued a strongly worded statement denying that he’s racist, “Atypical” actor Rapaport hit up his Twitter account to inform Kid Rock that he’s a “traitor” who’s aligned with the losing side of history.
“Come on Kid Rock, I don’t mean to be bold; but put thatBaDiddyBa bullsh— on hold. I’m-a get right down to the nitty-grit; I’m-a tell you a little story why you ain’t s—,” Rapaport rapped at the beginning of his social-media rant, in what he said was a verbatim quote “from the great MC Kool Moe Dee.”
“Gonna give [Dee] love. Something Kid Rock, you never did when you was doing that ’90s mash-up hip-hop bulls–t. Your whole catalog’s trash,” Rapaport declared.
And then Rapaport really heated up, taking Rock to task for associating himself with the Confederate flag and for criticizing former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, who famously made the decision not to stand for the national anthem before games in protest of the treatment of minorities in the U.S.
“Kid Rock, you corny motherf—er, you used to be all into hip-hop, and now you’re wrapped up in a Confederate flag saying, ‘F–k Colin Kaepernick.’ No, f— you — and wash your mother—-ing hair!” Rapaport vented. “Wrapped up in that Confederate flag like s— is sweet. The confederacy fought the United States and lost, you dumb motherf—er, so that means you’re a traitor. But you’re probably too hopped up on that booger-sugar to know the difference.”
On Monday, Kid Rock — whose real name is Robert Ritchie, and who signaled earlier this year that he might mount a senatorial campaign in his home state of Michigan — posted a Facebook rant aimed at, among other things, a New York Post article and Al Sharpton.
Referencing the “garbage the extreme left is trying to create,” Rock wrote, “hey are trying to use the old confederate flag BS, etc. to stir the pot, when we all know none of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office.”
Rock concluded his jeremiad with, “P.P.P.P.P.S. I LOVE BLACK PEOPLE!!”
Watch Rapaport offer his salty-tongued side of things in the video.
