Ted Nugent‘s July 18 present on the Avondale Brewing Co. in Birmingham, AL has been canned due to his politics.
The present was initially introduced on Monday, Could 1, and shortly garnered roughly 1,000 feedback on the Avondale Brewing Fb web page. The feedback in response to AL.com ranged from “Lose this present or lose my enterprise” to “Grotesque that you’d guide such trash,” proper to “To convey this transphobic particular person into our various neighborhood is a travesty.”
Avondale Brewing Co. has since cancelled the present, deleted all posts about it, and posted an announcement saying “We now have heard the issues of the Avondale neighborhood, which is so vital to us, and along side our companions, have taken the required steps to to cancel the Ted Nugent live performance scheduled for July 18.”
And I do know, the joke is that “wow, Ted is just too conservative for Alabama”! However Birmingham is in Jefferson County, who voted pretty heavily blue in the 2020 election. Nugent has since type of responded, saying “liars & haters drunk on silly incapable to debate me-” Which may actually be described as English phrases assembled into the construction some people would acknowledge as a sentence.
Nugent has voiced his disapproval of the transgender neighborhood previously, lately tweeting “There isn’t any such factor as transgender. You can’t change your gender. Comfortably numb is definitely uncomfortably dumb. Debate me however convey your bib.”
Which could be very a lot in step with all of the performative anti-trans rhetoric going round, namely when Kid Rock got mad at a beer company. I imply, Nugent even posted a video of somebody capturing Bud Mild with a tank lately, incase you are questioning what the sub-levels of stupidity we’re coping with are.
Finally, that is all going to feed into somebody like Nugent‘s complete “see! They’re attempting to suppress me!” oppression narrative, despite the fact that no person is. If a venue’s buyer base would not need you there, they do not need you there. Easy as that.
