Coeur d’Alene Casino Cancels Ted Nugent Show

I mean one look at the photo and you're screaming, “Who thought that was a good idea?”

Ted Nugent was scheduled to perform at the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Idaho on August 4th, but after the casino received complaints about things Ted Nugent has spoken on in the past, they decided to cancel the show.

The Spokeman-Review reported that complaints about the booking grew Monday after the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch blog called attention to the appearance, labeling it a “PR disaster.”



“The decision is stirring controversy for a tribe that has proudly involved itself in human rights causes and contributed thousands of dollars to fight racism,” wrote Hatewatch blogger Bill Morlin, a former reporter for The Spokesman-Review.

Nugent sometimes wears an Indian headdress on stage and mocks those campaigning to change sports team names such as Redskins and Savages, Morlin wrote.

Recently Nugent has posted a photo of himself in a headdress in front of a white buffalo on his Facebook page. Many natives called him out, including Lance Browneyes. Nugent attacked Browneyes online but then quickly deleted the offending comments. But as we all know, anything that goes on the Internet lives forever. Screenshots of the comments below.

Eh, good riddance. I am sure the casino will find a more worthy act to fill the Nuge's shoes.

ted’s split personality is getting to be more tragic everyday
one who recognizes true accuracy of humanity can observe the battle in ted’s disposition and mentality ,as said he comes with divided hands and shattered integrity

i am sure the apache elder gave the gift as an honor not as apparel, and if so it would be wrong for him to wear it.

Not Amerindian but I support. It would have been much more mediatised if Nugent would have wore a Fedora , Boudin , eating bacon on stage while deniying holocaust. Good thing , cancel this
