El bar del rockero Kid Rock: "Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk & Rock ‘n’ Roll Steakhouse" en Nashville, Tennessee fue uno de cuatro bares que incumplieron una serie de medidas impuestas tras la pandemia por lo que se les suspendió su permiso de vender licor.

Una foto reveló que decenas de personas estaban sentadas alrededor del bar sin respetar medidas de distanciamiento y hasta se vieron empleados sin mascarillas. Entre los requerimientos de la orden de emergencia se requiere que clientes utilicen máscaras y que empleados mantengan sus caras cubiertas. Además, se debe cumplir medidas de distanciamiento social por lo que sentarse al bar no está permitido.

In the time since this picture was shared (not by me, somebody else took it and shared it initially), Steve Smith, his lawyer and his brother John Taylor have compared them opening to the #blacklivesmatter protests and called being fined a double standard, called Covid a hoax and declared Fox News the only arbiter of truth, and most recently they equated their fight against our local government (a government crippled by our state legislation and governor who are all Trump cronies) to LIVING IN EAST GERMANY BEHIND THE BERLIN WALL. That’s all I got, man. Anyway, #blacklivesmatter, #blackmusicmatters, call your reps and ask them to support funding for musicians and the arts so they don’t have to play packed houses and risk their lives, and support @nivassoc so we can get the venues where actually independent original music happens back open again. #covid19 #dogwhistle

La ciudad de Nashville apenas está en la fase de reapertura, la tercera fase que incluiría un aforo de hasta un 50% para bares empezará la próxima semana.

Afortunadamente para el intérprete de "Bawitdaba" y "Cowboy" la suspensión es solo por 5 días.
