Ted Nugent got into hot water when he basically threatened to sexually assault a CBS journalist and producer after they dared question his political beliefs.
We’ve already established that Ted Nugent basically has no control over what comes out of his mouth. Now the “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker is in trouble again after getting super raunchy during an interview with CBS News — in a way that some could see as a threat of sexual assault.
The trouble started when Nugent was discussing his run-in with the Secret Service after making some comments that could have been construed as inciting violence against President Obama. CBS reporter Jeff Glor then questioned Nugent’s self-proclaimed “moderate” stance.
“You are many things, but not moderate,” Glor stated.
“I’m an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy,” Nugent yelled, “and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your d**k.”
“Or I’ll f–k you, how’s that sound?” he yelled at a female producer off-camera.
Wow. Nugent said he’s all worked up over the political correctness that has taken over America.
“I’m a perfect human being. I stumble perfectly. But I also aspire to and accomplish a perfect standing up, dusting off in that arena and continue on,” he said.
“I will better mankind, I will better the environment, I will better America.”
The rant was a bit much, even by Nugent standards — and his reps quickly developed an excuse for it.
“We are able to confirm that Mr. Ted Nugent was hospitalized directly following his CBS This Morning interview for treatment of a kidney stone,” his rep told E! News. “It had been bothering him all day, but he was unaware of the severity until he was admitted to the hospital. Mr. Nugent has fully recovered and has not missed a performance as a result.”
And P.S.? Nugent’s wife made him apologize to the staff he insulted at CBS News.
