Since Kid Rock slammed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently over the tech giant’s decision to block posts that featured links to a controversial news story, the social media site has been awash in hot takes.
He tweeted a photo of Dorsey, 43, along with a tweet that reads: “Look at this b—h a– m—-r f—-r! Have a great weekend. Kid Rock.”
The tweet came after Twitter blocked last week a story by the NY Post that said Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had used his power and influence to enrich his son Hunter through shady dealings in Ukraine, the New York Times reported.

Twitter originally blocked the story on the grounds it violated the site’s hacked information policy. On Friday, however, Dorsey said they were wrong to have blocked the story and allowed others to publish it, Variety reports. Though the New York Post’s Twitter account remains locked, several sites have said.
The saga reignited the debate about the power and influence social media sites have, especially in an election. The Senate Judiciary Committee may issuing subpoenas for Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg to testify on the matter ahead of the Nov. 3 election, Politico said.

Commenters were split over the post. Some were on his side.
Others were not…
