He’s doubling down — and not on COVID shots.
Outspoken rocker Ted Nugent was ridiculed mercilessly online when he contracted the coronavirus after labeling the pandemic a “scam.” However, the Motor City Madman recently clapped back at trolls, whom he termed “satanic haters” in a Monday video posted to Facebook Live.
“We pray for the satanic haters who celebrated people’s suffering,” said Nugent, 72, in the 10-minute clip, claiming he’d even received “emails that wished death to the Nugent Family.”
The “Just What The Doctor Ordered” singer — who previously declared, “I ain’t taking no vaccine” — also said the people responsible were “Democrats, devils” and “soulless, drunk-on-hate evil people.”
The Detroit native also took the opportunity to lay into New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whom he called a “dishonest, corrupt, criminal, power-abusing monster-gang of Satan-worshippers.”
The outspoken guitarist ended the video by telling his followers to “keep positive” and wishing “Godspeed” to “all the people who love their fellow man.”
The bombastic tirade comes a week after the Nuge had announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, which he had infamously deemed “not a real pandemic.” The right-wing musician had also called mask-wearers “sheep” and repeatedly referred to the disease as the “China virus.”
“I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days. I thought I was dying,” Nugent said in the video, adding that the disease had left him struggling to “crawl out of bed.”
Despite the horrific symptoms, the staunch NRA advocate claimed he wouldn’t get the COVID-19 vaccine because “nobody knows what’s in it.”
Earlier in April, Nugent had wondered why cities weren’t “shut down for COVID 1 through 18?”
