Civil rights group wants Kid Rock to cancel Detroit concerts

Posted: Updated:

Kid Rock says criticism about his upcoming concerts in Detroit is politically motivated.     

The Detroit-area native whose real name is Robert Ritchie posted an obscenity-laced response Monday on Facebook to a planned protest by the National Action Network's Detroit chapter.

We can not embed the post due to language that violates our publication policies. However, it's posted on his Facebook Page.

The first of six concerts is scheduled Tuesday. The civil rights group last week called for their cancellation because of Kid Rock's past display of the Confederate flag during performances and his recent criticism of black former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for refusing to stand during the national anthem last year.     

Kid Rock wrote, "None of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office."     

He has been encouraged to run for the U.S. Senate as a Republican.
