Kid Rock under fire

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Kid Rock is coming under fire for displaying the confederate flag on set during performances.  Civil rights groups in Detroit are urging the Michigan native rocker to stop using the confederate flag as a prop during the shows.  Members of the National Action Network, a group founded by the revered Al Sharpton, is also asking leaders of General Motors to persuade the musician not to use the flag.  GM is a sponsor of Kid Rock's summer tour. 

The musician has defended his use of the confederate flag multiple times in the past, saying it represents Southern rock and a rebel soul.
