Kip Moore: “Social Media Has Become an Open Forum for A**holes”

Technology has afforded us many wonderful things, like the ability to communicate almost instantaneously with anyone around the world, or learn how to build a deck for your backyard, or even subscribe to a fancy cheese club. It’s amazing.

But along with this access to virtually unlimited information comes a certain level of anonymity, where people feel they can say anything, no matter how harsh and ugly, and be free from reprisal.

Have no fear, though, because Kip Moore has got your back. The “Dirt Road” singer took to Facebook to express his feelings about people who leave nasty comments on his meet-and-greet photos. “Social media has become an open forum for assholes who think its cool to express their asshole cowardly hide behind a computer screen opinions,” he posted (warning: strong language), urging those commenters to get off his page if all they were going to do was “troll and look for some pictures of certain fans to ridicule. My fans are happy in these pictures and from all walks of life.”

He concluded the post by thanking his fans, who do look quite happy in those meet-and-greet pictures. “For all the supportive fans out there and the good comments, I appreciate u guys and hope to c u on the road.”

Fans will have many opportunities to do just that, because Kip is out with Tim McGraw’s Sundown Heaven Town Tour all summer long. Fans coming to Nashville for CMA Music Fest can see him at Country Weekly’s Kick-Off Party powered by NASH on Tuesday, June 3.
