Another Casino Cancels Ted Nuget Appearance Over Racism Allegations
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.28.2014

Ted Nugent is proving to be deeply unpopular on the casino circuit. As we reported last week, the Coeur d'Alene Tribe cancelled Nugent's appearance at their Idaho casino citing that they called "racist and hate-filled remarks" made by the rocker. Now King5 News reports that the Puyallup Tribe in Washington is doing the same.

According to the site, Emerald Queen Casino has canceled two Nugent concerts scheduled for August 2nd and 3rd after learning that he has made racist remarks. The tribal council says that they received several complaints from their community wanting them to cancel the Nugent shows.

Puyallup tribal council vice president Lawrence W. LaPointe said, "The first amendment gives people the right free speech, but I think racism is intolerable and not acceptable here. We've been getting lots of complaints from the community and other organizations. I don't want to take away his right to say what he wants to say, but we don't need it here."

Nugent defended himself last week, saying that his music has been influenced by the likes of Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and that he's paid tribute to Martin Luther King in his songs. He added that his song "Great White Buffalo" is shows that he isn't toward Native Americans and that he's the target of an "army assigned to destroy Ted Nugent."
