Ted Nugent Told To Tone It Down For State Fair Show
Detroit Free Press reports that a South Dakota state fair official asked Ted Nugent to tone things down for an show at the S.D. State Fair on Sunday, after a video surfaced of the outspoken rocker slamming Democratic presidential candiates Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.
Susan Hayward, who manages the fair, told KSFY-TV in Sioux Falls that officials contacted Nugent's representatives yesterday and reminded them that the fair is a family-oriented event.
"They were very courteous in responding immediately in assuring us that that's exactly what we would have," Hayward says.
Video footage of Ted Nugent having a few choice words for Clinton and Obama during a recent concert has surfaced. With machine guns in his hands, a camouflaged Nugent yelled, "Obama, he's a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun. ... And then I was in New York. I said, 'Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset.' " He also went off on Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer before saying, "Any questions?" and shouting, "Freedom!"
Nugent has been an outspoken advocate of the second amendment (the right to bear arms) and pro-hunting issues.
Nugent also openly takes an anti-drugs and alcohol stance, which he reportedly has followed during his career, unlike many other rock musicians.
In addition to his music career, Nugent has starred in his own television reality shows, "Surviving Nugent" (2003, VH1) and "Wanted: Ted or Alive" (2005, OLN).
