Con­fed­er­ate flag to stay

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

AMER­I­CAN rocker Kid Rock has re­fused to bow to pres­sure from ac­tivists call­ing for him to stop us­ing the con­tro­ver­sial Con­fed­er­ate flag in his shows.

The All Sum­mer Long star regularly uses the sym­bol on stage, but he has been asked to drop it from his act af­ter Dy­lann Roof, the sus­pect ac­cused of gun­ning down nine peo­ple in a South Carolina church in June, was pic­tured pos­ing with the flag.

Mem­bers of the Michigan Chap­ter of the Na­tional Ac­tion Net­work event staged a protest out­side a Kid Rock mu­seum ex­hi­bi­tion in the rocker’s na­tive Detriot, but their ac­tions have failed to de­ter the rocker.

Kid Rock.
