Kip Moore Addresses Criticism Over His Surprise Sorority Visits
“We play for all walks of life creed and color and we will continue,” he says on Twitter.
You may have seen that Kip Moore has been surprising kids at fraternity and sorority houses following his shows with Lady Antebellum. Most folks seem pretty excited about the up-close encounters, but evidently you can’t please everybody.
Following his visit with women of Alpha Phi and the men of Pi Kappa Alpha at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., Kip took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with someone who felt like he should be spending his time elsewhere.
“I try not to waste my time on negative people that say dumb s--t but in regards to the idiot last night and for anyone else who wants to bitch about us playing post show jam sessions for OUR fans,” he wrote in a series of tweets on Saturday (Feb. 22), “we don’t care what u think. We play for all walks of life creed and color and we will continue. We play for children’s hospitals, troops, charities etc that’s never seen. If we choose to hang w a frat house that came to our original show and hang again w them after then that’s what we’ll do. We don’t play at an old folks home cause they wouldn’t give a damn about us being there and would prolly asked us to turn it DOWN! We’ll do us and u do u. To the fans... appreciate the support c ya soon.”
Thanks VA for the good times and appreciate the Pike house for rockin w us. Good peeps— Kip Moore (@KipMooreMusic) February 22, 2014
There is no word on the source of the original criticism, whether it was at the party or sent via social media. At any rate, it looks like Kip will continue to surprise folks after his shows, something he says is about staying connected with the fans.
“I just want to keep fans on their toes in the cities we’re in, where they don’t ever know what we’re gonna do,” he told Country Weekly recently. “We don’t bring security. We just go in there and hang out.”
From the look of the videos posted to Kip’s Instagram, everybody there had a great time. This weekend, Kip will head to Ontario to start the Canadian leg of the Lady Antebellum tour.
