KID Rock bragged that he "can't be canceled" in a new interview after backlash to his previous homophobic comments.
The rocker, 51, sparked outrage last summer when he called fans "f**king f*****s" during a wild rant on a night out in Tennessee.
He addressed the controversy surrounding him in a new chat with Tucker Carlson.
In a teaser from Monday night's interview, Tucker asked Rock- real name Robert Richie – why he hasn’t been canceled yet.
The Cowboy singer replied: "I am uncancellable. Because I don't give a f**k."
“At the end of the day, there’s nobody I’m beholden to – no record companies, no corporate interests, no nothing."

He added with a grin: "You can’t cancel me. I love it when they try."
Back in June, Rock was caught using a homophobic slur while slamming fans who were filming him at a bar in Tennessee.
He began his rant by singing "f**k your iPhone" and telling fans to "post this d**k right now" while pointing to his crotch.
In the clip, which was obtained by TMZ, some bar patrons approved of Rock's rantings, cheering him on after he gave the middle finger to the fan recording on their iPhone.

Rock has drawn ire in the past for his use of homophobic slurs, and his refusal to be "politically correct."
In 2015, he told the Guardian: "If someone says you can't say 'gay' like that you tell them to go f**k themselves.
"You're not going to get anything politically correct out of me."
In the same interview, which was published just a few months after the US legalized gay marriage federally, the artist discussed his political leanings – including his stance on gay marriage.
"I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues," Ritchie claimed at the time.
"I am no fan of abortion, but it's not up to a man to tell a woman what to do.
"As an ordained minister, I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I'm not opposed to it."
Rock also faced backlash in January with his song We the People, which featured controversial lyrics about President Joe Biden, Covid-19, and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
