Chrissy Teigen Slams Kid Rock After He Attacks Taylor Swift On Twitter

Chrissy Teigen won't stand for Kid Rock's disrespect!
The unofficial (but official) queen of Twitter issued yet another iconic clap back while coming to Taylor Swift's defense after the 48-year-old rocker randomly attacked T-Swift over her political views.
"Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period," he wrote on Friday (August 9). "And it looks like she will suck the door knob [sic] off Hollyweird [sic] to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl. -Kid Rock."
Without missing a beat, Chrissy quickly fired back, replying to his sexist tweet: "you’re pathetic. - Chrissy Teigen." While Taylor has yet to respond to Rock's unsolicited online hate, it's safe to assume she's somewhere saying, "You Need To Calm Down."
While it's unclear what exactly caused Kid Rock's crude Twitter outburst, Taylor's Vogue cover story in which she talked about politics was released a day prior to his rant. In the interview, Taylor brought up the 2016 Presidential election and explained why she chose to stay quiet and not endorse a candidate.
"Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement," she said, referring to Donald Trump, though she did not mention him by name. "He was going around saying, 'I'm a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you.' I just knew. I knew I wasn’t going to help."
"Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was: '[Taylor Swift's] calculated. She’s manipulative. She’s not what she seems. She's a snake. She’s a liar.' These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary [Clinton]," she added. "Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability?"
"Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women," Taylor continued. "The two nasty women. Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses."
However, Taylor chose to break her political silence last November during the midterm elections when she issued her support for Tennessee's Democratic candidates Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives.
"I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee," she wrote on Instagram. "In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now."

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈
