Kid Rock Makes Controversial Statement On Being Known For Shooting Bud Light Cans

You might remember Kid Rock once shot Bud Light cans, and got even more famous for it. However, he doesn’t care he has gained fame after the incident.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the musician said he didn’t ‘give a f*ck’ about being famous for shooting cans. He shared famous names and what they are known for while acknowledging that he is now known for shooting beer cans. He said:

“‘Purple Rain’ is probably the greatest Prince song ever written. Prince is known for ‘Purple Rain.’ I’m known for shooting up Bud Light cans!”

When the Rolling Stone interviewer asked him if he wanted the incident to be his ‘epitaph,’ the singer said he couldn’t care less:

“No, I don’t. You don’t understand. I really don’t give a f*ck.”

The Bud Light Issue

The rapper got fired up when Bud Light partnered with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. Bud Light had sent Mulvaney a special crate of beer to celebrate her first year living openly as a woman. This caused a tantrum and Kid Rock shared a video of shooting at cases of Bud Light with a gun. In the video, he wore a ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball cap and joked about feeling ‘a little frisky today.’

However, he was seen drinking Bud Light months after the incident. When asked about it in an interview, he clarified that he never actually boycotted the brand.

Kid Rock Became Friends With The Bud Light CEO

In an earlier interview, Kid Rock opened up about his friendship with Bud Light CEO Brendan Whitworth. The singer’s words came after a widely publicized boycott of the beer brand in 2023.

After the Budweiser incident, Kid Rock admitted that he formed a bond with Brendan Whitworth. He shared how their friendship blossomed quickly and Whitworth even visited him in Nashville with his team. They spent time bonding over Bud Light, bowling, and other activities.

Even though there were discussions about potential business opportunities with Bud Light, Kid Rock ultimately decided against a partnership. He felt it might compromise his brand or image.
