    Sam Riddle? What? Was he talking about it on his radio slot on 910 AM?

    Kid Rock says something inappropriate - not shocked
    Kid Rock closes his restaurant - not shocked

    Someone put Sam Riddle in charge of something - WTF?

    ^^^ IDK... I just know he (Riddle) has an 10 AM slot on the radio station. Can't keep a good man down ----

    Maybe he mentioned the Rock restaurant debacle...

    So are we at the point when we just gloss over the fact that this guy said for two women to "suck his d sideways"? Who apparently we're just living their life no association to Kid Rock at all. Also, Kid Rock doesn't issue an apology at all. Also, gets upset when they rally to close his restaurant? What type of world do we live in!?!

    People that think Sam Riddle is still a thing in 2019 (and AM radio for that matter) are just as bad as the people that think Kid Rock is still a thing in 2019. We all know the Ilitch organization is stuck in the 90's. The way I look at it, Kid Rock did us all a favor. Now we can move on in a positive way without all the old BS dragging everything down.

    Nobody in this city likes Kid Rock. Thank you Nashville for taking the garbage.

    Hopefully he starts telling everybody he was born and bred there. It's not like he's a stranger to compulsive lying.

    He was with his NAN associates doing a protest outside LCA and they were taking credit for Kid Rock not renewing his lease.

    Kid's supporters are claiming "freedom of speech" for his diatribe and against LCA closing his restaurant. What they fail to understand is that LCA has the right to their own free speech and that involves them closing his place down.

    Did LCA refuse or the other way around?

    Two stories making the rounds, but I know Kid is screaming about having sunk millions into Detroit and it wasn't appreciated, so I can only guess they either bounced him or had words with him.

    Sounds a lot like someone was asked to not renew his lease:

    “We have been in contact with Kid Rock," Granger's statement read. "He has voluntarily decided not to renew his licensing agreement for the Kid Rock’s Made in Detroit restaurant which comes up for renewal in April. We are in the business of amazing and inspiring our fans and guests through an incredible array of world-class sporting and live entertainment events. As our venues are open, inviting, inclusive, and respectful to all, we look forward to bringing on an exciting new concept that aligns with our community and company values.”

    Kid's statement on FB
    Kid Rock posted a statement to his Facebook page on Wednesday morning:"I will not be renewing my licensing agreement for my Made In Detroit Restaurant this April.I appreciate all who have patronized our place and still have much love for the City of Detroit and the people / organizations that I have helped there for years, black, white, whatever, but learned long ago, go where you’re celebrated, not tolerated.I guess the millions of dollars I pumped into that town was not enough.
    I will let the NAN network and others go ahead and take the wheel now. Good luck. I may be guilty of being a loud mouth jerk at times, but trying to label me racist is a joke, and actually only does a disservice to the black community, which I have supported my entire life, by trying to alienate myself and many others.PS - Hey Al Sharpton, you or your cronies will never beat me you tax evading, race baiting clown!Trump 2020!!
    250k donated to Eastern Market for the Kid Rock community kitchen

    250k donated for the Barbara Bush reading innovative in Detroit
    1m raised to help save The DSO, many, many more 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of dollars raised and donated in Detroit by Kid Rock"

    That would be my guess as well. And as Kid Rock hasn't publicly called out the Illitches, I wouldn't doubt if the request came with some type of financial agreement. The place was likely a money pit anyhow, so I doubt he is as broken up about it as it appears.

    Still blown away LCA opened with six straight Kid Rock shows in a city that is 80% African-American. That's a stain for the arena that'll never go away.

    Yup. When I see a truck in Hazel Park driving a round with a five foot confederate flag mounted to the back of it I know what they're trying to say. It isn't about southern pride. It's a redneck culture that adores the "honesty" of people expressing their bigoted views. It's about intolerance and separation. It's about a furtherance of the sometimes silent racism that persists today.

    It's amazing how a group of people can hate on Mexican immigrants and black people because of their "invasion", but they adopt and adore a people that wanted to rip this country apart.

    Few minds will be changed, so for the most part I just focus on making sure my children know that hate and bigotry is morally wrong and repulsive.
