Idaho Indian Tribe Cancels Ted Nugent Concert Citing His ‘Racist Views’
By Radio.com Staff
Ted Nugent is known for causing a stir with his colorful comments, but now one town is taking action against the rocker’s hate speech by hitting him where it hurts the most: his wallet.
According to the Associated Press (via Billboard), Nugent was set to play a casino in Idaho on August 4, but the Coeur d’Alene Tribe cancelled the show citing Nugent’s “racist and hate-filled remarks.”
The Native American tribe explained on Monday (July 21) that it booked Nugent without realizing he spouted “racist attitudes and views.” The tribe however did not give specific detail to which of Nugent’s comments they oppose.
We’ll assume it could be any of the following: his views on immigration reform, his Twitter rant where he asked if his words were “more offensive than,” calling Stevie Wonder “brain-dead” for boycotting Florida after Trayvon Martin case or, his most recent comment where he called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel.” He later apologized for the term, but still said Obama was a “liar” who violates the Constitution.
Nugent has yet to comment on the cancellation, but we’re sure he will. Just wait for it.
