Someone take Kid Rock’s phone away.

The rock star(?) was feeling particularly misogynistic heading into the weekend. He wrote a Tweet blasting Taylor Swift’s recent public stance on American politics, and why she stayed mum during the 2016 election. According to him, it’s because she wants critical acclaim for her supporting role in Tom Hooper’s live-action film adaptation of the Broadway musical, Cats – not because she did a little self-reflection and realized her platform and influence could positively help millions of people.

“Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period,” he wrote. “And it looks like she will **** the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.”

Kid Rock didn’t explicitly mention why he’s fired up, but it likely stems from the pop star’s new Vogue interview in which she touches on keeping silent during a polarizing time in politics.

“Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement,” Swift said. “[Trump] was going around saying, I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you. I just knew I wasn’t going to help. Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was She’s calculated. She’s manipulative. She’s not what she seems. She’s a snake. She’s a liar. These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary. Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women. The two nasty women. Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses.”

Swift also doubled down on her stance advocating the LGBTQ community.

Prior to this, Swift threw her weight behind Phil Bredesen, the Democratic challenger to Sen. Marsha Blackburn, in Tennessee’s 2018 midterms.

On Friday, President Trump told the media he believes Hollywood is giving Republicans the cold shoulder.

“They’re treating conservatives very unfairly Hollywood,” Trump told reporters. He added: “But Hollywood is really terrible. You talk about racism, Hollywood is racist!”
