The NHL Signed Kid Rock As The All Star Game Entertainer And The Twitterers Are Not Amused
The National Hockey League has announced that noted person who’s currently being sued by clowns Kid Rock will be performing at the All Star Game on Sunday January 28 in Tampa Florida, and that seems to be going over about as smashingly as a flea circus being announced as the entertainment at a dog picnic.
Mr. Ritchie and the NHL are being dragged for, among other things, his support of the 45th President of the United States, his Sweary McSwearington lambasting of Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest, and his affinity for the Confederate flag. Here are several of the more coherent exhibits:
NHL: Why don’t any women, minorities, or people under 40 watch our sport?
Also NHL: Let’s book Kid Rock to be the main entertainment for our biggest event of the year!!

Kid Rock will be headlining the entertainment for the NHL All Star game along with Tomi Lahren rapping, the woman who wore the MAGA dress singing, and Scott Baio pucking himself.

NHL exec: “Hey! Let’s unnecessarily align ourselves with a divisive performer in a politically sensitive time in exchange for songs at an intermission event that no one cares about for a sport that is generally not political.”
All: “this sounds like a good risk reward trade-off”
