[Look] Ted Nugent's Latest Racist Facebook Post Will Make You Cringe

Plus, the rocker voices his support for Donald Trump.

Published April 1, 2016

Ted Nugent has been the target of criticism many times for his racist antics, but he's back at it. The rocker posted a photo to Facebook that is making a lot of people uncomfortable. The picture is of a van marked with the slogan, “2 n*****s in a stolen truck. We move your s**t like it was ours.”

While, for most, it's beyond comprehension why Nugent would feel the need to share such a cringe-inducing image, he claims it was simply to celebrate a “brilliant” businessman:

“Before all the braindead dishonest lying scum politically correct racist hatepunks get all goofball toxic on us here, I am simply promoting a brilliant entrepreneur in Detroit that created a clever business," he replied after the posting sparked major backlash. "His words, not mine. Ya gotta love this guy!! When in doubt whip it out!”

According New York Daily News,  the image has been circulating on racist websites for years. Many commenters have come out in protest of the picture, and when one said that he had lost respect for Nugent, the musician replied, “A Black man started a clever biz a**hole. FkU.”

The photo has since been removed from his page, but you can still see it here:

In case you're still questioning whether Nugent is a bigoted jerk, consider that he offered a few thoughts on Donald Trump — and the groups who are calling him out — as well:

At this time I do not endorse Donald Trump anymore than I endorse Ted Cruz as I admire both gentlemen. But these points...

Makes perfect sense.

This is not the first time Nugent has made headlines for promoting the use of the n-word, once calling it a “friendly, even trial greeting with no hint whatsoever of negativity nor hostility.”

He added, “For our society to dare claim that any and every use of the word n***** is hateful and wrong is just plain dishonest, foolish, denies the truth and only hurts those we wish to protect the most.”

He has also made news in the past for calling President Obama a “sub-human mongrel,” and in a 1990 interview he suggested that apartheid wasn’t “that cut-and-dry,” adding, “all men are not created equal.”
