Musician Kid Rock didn’t mince words about his feelings towards Colin Kaepernick during a recent concert.

Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, was performing at the Iowa state fair over the weekend, and dropped a little bit of his opinion during his performance of “Born Free.”

“Football’s about ready to start,” he said. “You know what? F*ck Colin Kaepernick,” Rock told the audience, according to the Des Moines Register.

There isn’t video of the incident yet, but there is video of a similar incident from Kid Rock, who is flirting with a 2018 Senate run, during a concert in Boston from 2016.

WATCH:

I’ve been to a Kid Rock concert, and it’s probably a safe assumption 99 percent of people in attendance are not fans of people like Kaepernick, who chose to disrespect the national anthem.

Rock is also a smart dude, and knows the audience of the flyover states largely agrees with his conservative and libertarian worldview. I can’t wait to see his potential senate campaign promo involving him trashing Kaepernick being unemployed. It’s going to be pure gold.
