Kid Rock Allegedly Waves Gun at Reporter in Erratic Interview

The 'All Summer Long' singer is described as 'drunk and belligerent' during an interview with Rolling Stone's David Peisner before he allegedly pulls out a handgun.

AceShowbiz - Kid Rock has once again made headlines due to his antics. No stranger to controversy, the musician has overshadowed the voice that he expressed in an interview with his alleged erratic behavior.

The singer/rapper recently sat down with Rolling Stone's David Peisner for a wide-ranging profile, which was published online on late Sunday, May 19. During the conversation that spanned political topics such as transgender rights and the 2020 U.S. presidential election, he allegedly pulled out a weapon and waved it to the reporter.

Peisner said that it began cordially enough before Rock got "drunk and belligerent" and sent the eventing "off the rails" as the two argued over Donald Trump and immigration. The writer noted that the rocker had been drinking three to four alcoholic beverages in "pretty quick succession" leading up to the incident.

Peiser said the "Cowboy" hitmaker called immigrants "murderers" and "rapists" before he allegedly reached behind the seat of his leather chair to pull "out a black handgun." Peiser recounted, "He's sitting in a dark leather chair, shouting at me about something or other, when he reaches behind the seat, pulls out a black handgun, and waves it around to make some sort of point." The singer allegedly shouted, "And I got a f**king goddamn gun right here if I need it! I got them everywhere!"

The writer also claimed that Rock, born Robert James Ritchie, uttered a racial slur several times throughout the interview. When asked by Peisner if he "might be on the wrong side of history" due to his political stance, the 53-year-old pointed out that Detroit rapper Trick Trick, who is black, allegedly voiced his support of Rock's allegiance to Trump. The singer also called Trick Trick a racial slur in his description of their conversation.

"It's worth mentioning these are not the only times Ritchie drops" the offensive term during the interview, Peisner wrote. "It'd be easy to label this as the rantings of a drunk racist, but as with everything that Ritchie does, it's hard to know how calculated it all is."

Peisner added, "Is he just trying to get a reaction? Is he begging to be pilloried when this story comes out so he can launch into a very public tirade against 'cancel culture'? Is this all just a play for more attention?"

When talking about his performance in 2012's short film "Americans" about political differences, Rock admitted he has contributed to the contentious sociopolitical climate in the U.S. "I'm part of the problem," said the star, who often used music to express his right-wing views. "I'm one of the polarizing people, no question." He added, "I'm not going to get it right every time, but I know my heart's right. I want the best for this country."
