Some of those planning to attend the McHenry County Fair in Illinois this summer aren’t happy that Ted Nugent is on the bill, so they’ve threatened a boycott.
Hoping to defuse the situation, concert promoter Jeff Kleinschmidt said, “It has never been the fair committee’s intention, or my intention, to make this a political statement of any sort.”
Taking to social media, the “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker and gun rights supporter responded, writing, “Only liars and America hating scumbags have a problem with me. My spirit irritates their demons!”
Despite the protest calls, Nugent is still on the bill, with organizers noting this year is on target to be the biggest ever.
