Kid Rock declares war on PETA

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.

    I can kinda tolerate him, but you’re right about the ‘fur wearing look’ on men. The whole look screams douche or porn star

  2. devilgirl says:

    He says he has every kind of animal in his wardrobe, which must include crabs, the one animal that Pam not only wears herself, but also gives as a gift to her special friends.

  3. Lauri says:

    I’m no fan of KR’s, and I agree he doesn’t look exactly dashing in fur, but I agree with his sentiment.

  4. vdantev says:

    In which case I’m siding with PETA just because I refuse to side with that douche-rocket.

  5. geronimo says:

    Ugh. I loathe PETA but, although I kind of like Kid, I absolutely hate his ignorant attitude here. And unfortunately comments like his do nothing but feed the perception that anyone who wears real fur is an unreconstructed, pulp-for-brains moron.

  6. SeVen says:

    I dont agree with wearing fur but i like Kid Rock…. I also sorta despise PETA’s methods of ” drawing attention” … Could be interesting , get me 2 tickets please.

  7. Kristen says:

    Ran –

    Your right fur on guys- YUCK! But he does declare himself a pimp.So I doubt he cares.

    But ultimately that is his personal choice. I would not want to be the PETA person who threw the paint – but I’d like to see it happen.

  8. GrnMtGirl says:

    I can’t explain it, but I like Kid-Rock. It must be my inner red-neck; he just seems like he would be fun to hang out with and I like a lot of his songs.

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 23 years now. I love animals and find abusive treatment of them to be terribly sad and they deserve to have a voice advocating for them. However, I can’t stand PETA and their tactics. I would Love, Love, Love to see Bobby go all Kid-Rock on them :!: :!: :!: :mrgreen:

    Men wearing fur just screams Pimp

  9. Syko says:

    “Men wearing fur just screams Pimp”

    which is probably exactly the reason he wears it. :lol:

    I’m not crazy about wearing fur either, but am less crazy about a group which feels like it’s okay to ruin others’ possessions just because they think the people who own fur should not own it. Last time I looked, we were still allowed to dress as we choose. Besides, it’s a little hypocritical to run around throwing paint on people’s furs and still wearing leather shoes and eating meat.

    I love Kid Rock. I’d love to see him go ballistic on a PETA paint thrower. I’d even chip in on his bail.

    Kid Rock and PETA are a great match. Both are annoying pricks. I hope they f*** each other up.

  12. Codzilla says:

    Syko: Amen, my friend. Amen.

    devilgirl: :lol:

  13. Holly says:

    Remember, when you support PETA, you’re supporting (domestic, and foreign) terrorism! The Animal Liberation Front, whom they fund regularly!

    Also, its freakin’ hilarious that those ads on the side are for fur.

  14. breederina says:

    I hear him. He’s touring on the bus, a thousand miles a dozen road kills later a fine new coat. Why waste ? I reckin he’s got, raccoon, possum, skunk and whatever that hairy mangled critter he’s wearing in the photo is all crafted into fine pimpin’ outerwear. You tell em Kid, they’ll have to pry the pelts out of your cold dead fingers first !

    p.s. Huggy Bear :-)

  15. Ron says:

    The only thing that PETA accomplishes with their tactics, is to kill MORE Animals. People who wear fur, their mind is not going to be changed by this. They are just going to go out and buy two more fur coats to replace the ones that PETA ruined. So PETA is the biggest sponsor of the fur industry’s continued health.

    And in regards to fur on men, it just has to be done well and worn by someone who can carry the coat. Believe me, not all fur will make you look like a pimp ie an english tweed top coat with a fur collar. Very Daddy Warbucks!

  16. vdantev says:

    Holly if you believe that, I have a monument in D.C I’ll sell you cheap. The consumer poisoning runs deep, I tell you. There’s finer things than what we own. And no one really owns anything, if you think about it. When we die, it goes to someone else or it goes in a landfill.

  17. J. says:

    I don’t care at all about Kid Rock, and I don’t particularly like fur, but if I was a celebrity, I’d love to piss off PETA just because I could. So kudos to him for that, even if it’s more to piss off the sleazy one than PETA.

  18. StuartSmiley says:

    vdantev, that’s deep. Really deep.

    Fact is that PETA is extremist organization. If its cause was truly just, they would not need to use shock tactics and they could act like a credible non-profit organization.

    PETA’s own tax returns show a $1,500 gift to the terrorist Earth Liberation Front (ELF), a donation made after ELF activists had been convicted of various violent crimes. They also gave a $70,000-plus gift to dedicated arsonist Rodney Coronado.

    If you really want to support animals, give to your local humane or no-kill shelter.

  19. Annie says:

    I just can’t stand how self-righteous the PETA people are.

    Get off your pedestal before I kick you off.

    I’m for animal rights, but the tactics they use appall me. And all it does is cause people to take the other extreme of their extreme.

  20. lanette says:

    i’d give money to kid rock for bail. i hate PETA.
    Hate men in furs but hate PETA more.

  21. Ben says:

    Ron I was going to write the exact same thing, and noticed you’d already pointed it out.
    PETA are only causing more animals to die, as the person is just going to buy another coat. I’d love to point the logic out to them
    If PETA wrecked my fur coat (I don’t actually have any fur), I make the guy hand over the money to buy a new one, if he refused I take him/her to court. I love to see the look on the person face when not only are they cause an another animal to die, their paying for it.

    On the topic of fur, I think as long of the animal isn’t endangered I don’t really see the problem with it, other than it looks a bit obnoxious sometimes.
    If someone wants to kill cats, foxes, and rabbits, for fur, by all means come and do it in Australia, because their pest, wiping out native animals, partly contributing to why Australia has one of the highest rates of extinction in the world, despite having one of the highest ratio of natural wildlife, to urban environments.

    If PETA got everyone to stop wearing fur, next they’d start attacking people eating meat and a restaurant. Then what, are they going to try and convert lions to eating celery. We’re omnivores, and while we can survive without meat, having a balanced diet is a major factor why we are intelligent.

  22. Birdzilla says:

    In a stupid protest by some stupid PETA wanks one member was wearing a stupid rat costume and carrying a realy stupid sign reading RATS HAVE RIGHTS thats only if your so spaced out on stupidweed your brain no longer even works i mean PETA is absolutly the most stupid group of brainless idiots around and as for rats they are devistating bird colonies on various islands and they spread disease and they bite babies in their crims those who think rats should have rights are watching RATOVILLE or FLUSHED too many times while sniffing freaky flour up their noses

  23. Christine says:

    PETA IS A TERRORIST GROUP! If we support them we are literally destroying centuries of hard – won freedom to choice and the right to live our lives as we choose to live. I love FUR and this fall/winter season I will be draped in FUR. ANY PETA psycho activists try taking me on this coming cold season had better beware – I will fight back so hard they will not know what hit em’. Stand up for your rights – fight the TERRORIST AL QAIEDA supporters that PETA IS! SHOW them we will not be forced into accepting their ideals and doctrinces – send them back into their RAT HOLE – the same RATS they wanna save! PETA BEWARE THIS SEASON WE ARE ON TO YOU! BE AFRAID PETA – US FUR WEARING FANS ARE ON TO YOU! Beware we will hit back! ANTI-PETA activists lets unite this season and send them psycho PETA activists back once and for all into their RAT HOLE where those cowards and bullies belong! PETA IS DEAD – ALL HAIL FUR LOVERS!

    I would like to thank you for this tremendous read!! I definitely enjoyed every little part of it. I have bookmarked you to check out future posts.

    I guess the Kid is a fan of dead animals

  26. victoria says:

    Its rare I find an argument where I can take the view of “both sides are douche nozzels” but this is certainly one. Peta are just stupid and KR is a nozzle – he totally doesnt look good in fur.

  27. It’s a difficult issue. I understand both sides of the debate because of how fairly you have presented them here. I look forward to your updates on the subject.
