Porn, Smut, Kid Rock and Other Barrels We Scraped This Week

There was a lot to be mad about this week, we get it. We're about to select the new leader of the free world and all we could talk about were binders and amnesia. There were a lot of other maddening things this week: Mindy Meyer, knives on bottles, and oh my god we had no idea how personally some of you take a Detroit diss. So we understand that you needed to vent a little, but you were really digging into the archives to find some of these. You go, Nancy Drew!

We can't help it if we're so naturally SEO-friendly. Plus, didn't you learn not to judge a book (Romney) by its [horribly creepy] cover?

Subj: you're an idiot
not sure how i landed on gawker… what a useless waste of space…
matt… i didn't read anything past the title of the article… you probably can think and write…. why don't you get a real job…

Hi! Wake up! You've missed some things since 2007 when this interview happened.

subj: here's a tip
Shut down. That chick, the editor or whatever? Acts like a snotty thirteen-year-old. Just watching her on Jimmy Kimmel makes my palms twitch. Giggling about her purposely libelous slander, talking like an airhead, rolling her eyes, etc. What a stupid cunt.

Hey. We told you it was NSFW.

Subj: you are a joke
It really speaks volumes for your "news" website when you feature porn as the top story. It's a fucking joke that you really think of yourselves as journalists. You're a bunch of sensationalizing idiots who don't deserve a cent for what you're writing. You are a disgrace to journalism and reporting.
Seriously, it amazes me that you feature straight up porn on your website. Wow.

We're probably going to have to make some cutbacks since employees of Foxconn won't be able to read our site at work anymore.

I doubt your organization will care, but I run IT for a large company, and due to Mr. Chen's article about Michael Brutsch, I will be filtering out all gawker URLs from every PC in the company.

I hope you are raped and murdered at a glacier slow pace. I hope your friends and family are all beaten and raped by wooden sporks in front of your eyes, as you watch their blood spill forth.

You gonna track me down and ruin my life, too? Spineless fucking assholes.

There is only one place Kid Rock is acceptable, and that is singing alongside Sheryl Crow in "Picture."

Leah -

You are very obviously on the Left and an Obama supporter. You write a scathing article, then you closed the discussion on your article because you couldn't take the heat? So I will write you an email. I am a Mitt Romney supporter, and a long time fan of Kid Rock.

I grew up with Bruce Springsteen's music (own many of his albums) - but he should have stayed out of politics.

Your opening sentence was very derogatory. "Stringy-haired beer koozie Kid Rock has officially thrown his support behind Mitt Romney." [Like Bruce Springsteen is looking good - taking his anti-depressant medications.] See attached photo.

I am from Michigan - just down the road from where Kid Rock grew up in Romeo, MI. Kid Rock has done a lot for Michigan and Detroit; he always promotes his home state and its people. He holds free concerts for charity, appears at local events, and supports area businesses.

Kid Rock has been involved with many charitable organizations but his main support has gone to Operation Homefront. Kid Rock has frequently partnered with Jim Beam to make large donations to the organization. He is close friends with Tony Stewart as he helps with charity events. Kid Rock has performed for American service men and women in countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Kosovo, and has performed for U.S. service members in Great Britain at R.A.F. bases such as RAF Lakenheath.

2011 Recap of the Kid Rock Foundation
Three quarters of a million dollars. To be exact, $756,000. That's what the Kid Rock Foundation distributed to charities, community groups and schools in 2011 … organizations making a difference in the lives of so many of our friends and families, neighbors and strangers alike in cities and towns across the country.

DETROIT, Michigan (Aug. 14, 2012) Detroit's own Kid Rock is partnering with the Detroit Historical Society to help share the story of the city's musical past and inspire its future.

Not all of the stories make the national news:

Kid Rock gave an injured Afghan vet a welcome home he'll never forget this past weekend.
Army Sgt. Davin Dumar and his wife found out they would be getting mortgage-free home Saturday, after being surprised while house-shopping by Rock and representatives of the veteran's charity Operation Finally Home and the Pulte Group, a home building company, according to the Detroit News.

Kid Rock is known around Michigan for being an amazing rock musician, but Kid Rock is also known for his large amount of charity work.

Rock has always been a supporter of the city of Detroit and has often expressed his love for the city in his music. This holiday season Rock teamed up with a church in downtown Detroit. HTR News reported that Rock's non-profit organization teamed up with the Hartford Memorial Baptist Church. With help from the musician's non-profit organization, the church provided many Meijer gift cards and over 300 gift baskets.

TheStarDem.com added that Rock received another honor this year as well. Rock and his non-profit organization received an honor from Goodfellows Detroit and the NAACP's Detroit location.

ClickonDetroit.com reported that the church had many more families in need than years past and the donations from Kid Rock and his organization had been extremely well received by all.

Rock has also been working with other organizations this holiday season in order to help Detroit.

Rock still lives in Detroit and has been a part of many charity projects to help the city. Last year, Rock performed his "love" song to Detroit on the American Music Awards when he performed "Times Like These."
