Musician Kid Rock set the political world on fire when he made it clear he was considering running for Senate as a Republican.

Once polls showed he was a real contender, liberals like Al Sharpton began using fake news to attack him.

But Kid Rock shut down the race-baiting Sharpton with one awesome answer.

Sharpton was in the headlines again because his niece was arrested for allegedly striking a cab driver and stealing his keys.

A reporter for the New York Post was fooled by a parody Twitter account and claimed Kid Rock mocked Sharpton about the arrest:

These “activists” are such nice people… not. @KidRock @FOX2News#AshleySharpton https://t.co/B8hV8M8ZNu

Al Sharpton’s National Action Network Chapter in Detroit announced plans to protest Kid Rock’s concerts because he raises the Confederate flag on stage.

Sharpton responded to the false story by claiming his group planned to proceed with their demonstration.

New York Post reported:

“The move comes after Sharpton’s National Action Network’s Detroit chapter announced plans to protest at a series of Kid Rock’s upcoming concerts and appearances in the city because he raises the Confederate flag onstage.

“Why is he retweeting this stuff?” Sharpton groused to the Post on Sunday.

Sharpton said Kid Rock “added fuel to the fire” and that NAN still plans to protest.”

Kid Rock responded on Facebook by blasting Sharpton for scheming to smear him as a racist.

He also ripped the Post for using fake news to attack him.

People! Pay NO attention to the garbage the extreme left is trying to create! (and by the way, $%^& the extreme left and the extreme right!)

They are trying to use the old confederate flag BS, etc. to stir the pot, when we all know none of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office. Pretty funny how scared I have them all and their only agenda is to try and label people / me racist who do not agree or cower to them!! No one had a word to say when we sold out the 6 shows at LCA back in January! My track record in Detroit and Michigan speaks for itself, and I would dare anyone talking trash to put theirs up against mine. I am also a homeowner and taxpayer in the city of Detroit, so suck on that too!

I am the bona fide KING OF DETROIT LOVE and it makes me smile down deep that you haters know that! Your jealousy is merely a reflection of disgust for your own failures and lack of positive ideas for our city.

I am however very disappointed that none of the people, businesses or charities I have so diligently supported in Detroit have had anything to say about all these unfounded attacks from these handful of jackasses and The Detroit Free Press. So for the unforeseen future I will focus my philanthropy efforts on other organizations besides the ones I have supported in the past. I would however employ that NAN go ahead and make up these losses since they claim to be so good for Detroit and do not want me opening the arena and generating tons of jobs and tax dollars for the city and people I LOVE… IDIOTS! ….. (Has Al Sharpton even paid his back taxes yet?)…

… P.P.P.S. Just saw this latest fake news piece…

The idiot that posted it is such a bad reporter that he/she did not even check to see if this was my Twitter (which it is NOT!) – of course the press will report on everything else I have said here except this fake news. Unreal. (and these are the types of stories that can not be taken back in this day and age because they go viral so quickly and the damage is done before the corrections can be made.)”

Do you agree with Kid Rock?
