Ted Nugent may not be facing any legal repercussions for comments made last week about Barack Obama, but the musician is still dealing with the fallout.
The veteran rocker’s appearance at a July 23 concert in honor of the U.S. military – to be held at Fort Knox in Kentucky and co-headlined by REO Speedwagon and Styx – has been canceled.
“After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Ft. Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance,” read a post made on the U.S. Army’s Ft. Knox Facebook page.
Elsewhere, Nugent has agreed to pay a $10,000, serve probation and record a PSA as part of a plea bargain in relation to a May 2009 incident in which he illegally killed a black bear in Alaska as part of his Outdoor Channel TV show Spirit of the Wild.
In court documents, Nugent says he killed the animal in question – via bow and arrow – days after wounding another bear in the state; according to Alaska hunting laws, a hunter is only permitted to bag one bear per season.
But back to the canceled concert appearance: Do you think the organizers should have barred Nugent from participating?
