Kid Rock has been captured on video using a homophobic slur.

The 50-year-old singer — and self-described “American Badass!,” per his Instagram bio — appeared to have become upset while at the mic at FishLipz Bar & Grill in Smithville, Tenn, a video posted by TMZ shows. His ire apparently stemmed from someone filming him performing, which led to the outburst.

Rock (real name: Robert Ritchie) was singing at the venue when he apparently noticed the unidentified cameraperson recording him with a phone. “F**k your iPhone, yeah!” he said, giving the person the finger. He said, “Post this,” making a lewd gesture. That was followed by him reportedly saying, “You f**king f****ts with your iPhones out…”

A spokesperson for Rock has not yet responded to Yahoo Entertainment’s requests for comment.

This isn’t Rock’s first rant in recent history. In 2019, the provocative performer unleashed a profanity-filled stage tirade against Oprah Winfrey while at his Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse — yes, the one with the 20-foot high butt-shaped bar sign — in Nashville. He also mentioned Joy Behar and Kathie Lee Gifford.
