Since South Carolina won the battle to bring down the Confederate flag on all government property, the rest of the country is set on making sure that no one glorifies the flag in public. In Detroit, Confederate flag protestors called for punk rocker Kid Rock to denounce the flag once and for all and keep it out of his future shows. Once he caught wind of the situation, Rock issued an official statement on his stance on the controversy. Find out what he had to say after the jump!

Recently, the local chapter of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network congregated at Detroit’s Historical Museum to call out Kid Rock’s dramatic use of the Confederate flag. The veteran rock star has always used the flag as the background of his major performances and has used the design in several music videos as well. According to EW, the president of the group’s Michigan chapter Rev. Charles Williams II called Kid Rock “the home-town hero who is a zero with the Confederate flag.”

If Kid Rock doesn’t ditch the flag, the protestors plan to boycott the museum where he’s featured in an exhibit covering 100 years of music in Detroit. Earlier today on Fox News, Megyn Kelly discussed the controversy on her show with fellow host Dana Loesch. According to Kelly, Kid Rock’s said “Tell the people protesting to kiss my ass.” His feelings on the issue are pretty much self-explanatory. Watch the video below.
