Ted Nugent's August 4th concert in an Idaho casino is no more. Billboard reports that the Coeur d'Alene tribe has cancelled the Nugent concert, which was to take place at their casino in Worley, because they learned that Nugent had made "racist and hate-filled remarks."
The tribe did not detail which specific views that they were targeting, but he does have a solid history of controversial remarks to choose from. He once called Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel" and said in a 2012 Washington Times column that "I'm beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War." In another interview in February he said, "I'm on top of a real America with working hard, playing hard, white motherf**king shitkickers, who are independent and get up in the morning." When the interviewer asked, "Aren't there any blacks?" he replied "Show me one. Show me one."
Officials for Nugent's music management company were out of the office and thus not available for comment.
