How did Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson ever get together long enough for a quickie, let alone a drive-by marriage? They both seem to despise the very essence of what the other stands for outside of their respective celebrity. Kid Rock, avid hunter and meat eater, is the polar opposite of over-the-top PETA representative Pamela Anderson. And now, maybe out of principle, and maybe just to piss off his ex even more, Kid Rock is declaring “war” on PETA and their disapproval of his beloved fur coats.
Kid Rock has hit out at animal rights advocates – insisting their campaigns will never stop him from wearing fur.
The All Summer Long hitmaker is known for his love of hunting and frequently wears lavish fur coats during his performances.
He tells Britain’s Mail on Sunday, “I want to go to war with Peta. My biggest extravagance is fur coats – I’ve got every kind of animal in my wardrobe.”
The rocker also slams Peta’s activism tactics – which have included throwing red paint on fur-wearing stars – and urges the group to try the same protest with him.
He adds: “I’m just willing the animal rights protesters to chuck some red paint on me. I understand people’s problems with it but to throw paint on someone is just wrong. They do it to little Hollywood actresses who can’t defend themselves.”

That is going to make one hell of a papparazzi payday. If Kid wills the activists into destroying one of his furs and he goes all Kid Rock on their asses the photos will end up splashed all over the internet and tabloids. Rock isn’t afraid of confrontation and he doesn’t seem to care about the repercussions, as evidenced by his VMA and Waffle House fights last year. He will certainly react differently than Lindsay Lohan did when they threw flour on her.
I think Kid Rock looks ridiculous in his fur coats. There’s something about a man in fur that is very off putting to me, in more than the whole wearing dead animals way. The only guy fur ever looked appropriate on was Huggy Bear.
