John Rich Gives Fans Peek At New Song Battling Cancel Culture | JP
Country star John Rich gave fans a sneak peek at a catchy new song he said he’s working on and it’s clear from the lyrics that include words like “offended” that it’s dealing with cancel culture.
The 49-year-old country music singer posted a clip on Thursday on Twitter for his hundreds of thousands of followers, showing him sitting at a what looked like a home bar while holding a guitar and playing.
“Brand new song called ‘I’m Offended!’” Rich tweeted. “Whatcha think? #ImOffended”

The song opens up with the lyrics, “Seems like these days, no matter what you say, someone’s loosing their ever loving mind.”
“It’s like they’re looking for a reason to have their fragile feelings hurt,” he added. “Every single time.”
The lyrics of the song go on to note things like “left and right” side of the aisle, the battle over using gasoline cars, versus electric vehicles, and people who are still wearing masks three years after the COVID-19 pandemic struck the country.
“I’m offended. You’re offended. Let’s all get offended tonight,” the chorus of the song goes. “I’ll order us a beer, we can sit down here, scream and yell and cuss and fuss and fight.”
At one point, there’s a lyric about people trying to “amend the First Amendment” because some are offended because of those people who defend “it all the time.” Another one that touches on the Second Amendment and those who choose to pray to God.
The conservative country star has spoken out in the past against the lockdowns, vaccine mandates, and has been especially critical of President Joe Biden’s former top medical adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Most recently, Rich posted on Twitter after winning a lawsuit against a concert promoter who sued him during the pandemic after the singer canceled a show at a venue that changed its policy about unvaccinated attendees, as JP previously reported.
During the lockdowns, I stated I’d NEVER play a concert venue that forced fans to show their “papers” for entry concerning Covid. One venue added that rule after I agreed to play, so I cancelled it. The promoter sued me. He LOST the case today! Happy to say I never bent the knee.
