How does Kid Rock get away with doing and saying more or less whatever he wants, whether about contentious political topics or otherwise? According to him, it is because he is “uncancelable,” and that is thanks to his not having to rely on large, generally woke, corporate entities.
Such is what he told Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity in an interview about his involvement in culture war topics, particularly Bud Light and that hullabaloo. As a reminder, Rock more or less began the Bud Light boycott by shooting up a case of its product after the Mulvaney video emerged, then posting the video of his doing so on Twitter.
Hannity opened up the conversation on the cancelation issue, noting that Rock has previously described himself as uncancelable (he did so in an interview with Tucker Carlson before Fox fired Tucker). Rock, responding, explained how not needing to rely on woke megacorps gives him the freedom to say and do what he wants.
“I call it Adam Schiff — you don’t give a Schiff,” Hannity joked. Rock, explaining why he doesn’t need to ever “give a Schiff,” or need to bend the knee to the opinions of woke companies, told Hannity, “I’m just not in bed with any corporate entities.”
Continuing, Rock said that he has been blessed in his career and that he decided long ago to not limit his ability to be vocal about issues he thinks important, which led him to work hard and rely on himself rather than big companies.
He said, “You know, that would put me in a position where people could raise a stink, and I decided years ago — I’ve been very blessed. You know, I’ve worked hard and still be able to do this at a high level at 25 years. And I decided when I was going to get vocal about all things, like, it’s not a time I have never been vocal.”
Continuing, Rock added that he also decided that monetary rewards would never be enough to get him to change who he is or remain quiet about important issues, saying, “I’ve always tried to live that there’s no dollar amount on God’s green earth that would get me to not be able to be who I am.”

During the interview, Rock also recounted a conversation he recently had with the CEO of Bud Light during the recent UFC fight at which he appeared alongside former President Trump, Dana White, and Tucker Carlson.
Telling Hannity what he told the CEO, Rock recounted, “Because if you put this in context, why did this start? I told him that night, ‘You signaled to a lot of people like myself, like-minded people, put the trans thing aside for a minute, right? But by sending that can to [Mulvaney], you kind of signaled to us you support this lifestyle and more importantly, like, men being in women’s sports or in my granddaughter’s locker room. Most of us draw a hard line right there. Nah.”
Continuing, Rock then added that he is generally fine with letting people live the lives they want to, “But as soon as you bring our kids into this, that’s where we’re going to bring hatred into it. Leave our frickin’ kids out of it.”
