Ted Nugent won’t be in line for potential COVID-19 vaccines. The rock star has always been one to speak his mind. But recently, he shared his thoughts on a potential coronavirus vaccine.
In a Facebook post, Nugent went on a profanity-laced rant against pharmaceutical companies and their development of the vaccine. He also shared a meme of what Homer Simpson would look like in “real life.” The image is ghoulish and gross-looking. Nugent captioned the meme, “First person received the new vaccine… He said he feels great.”
Nugent also captioned the image with a rant about the vaccine. He wrote, “Hey, soulless tyrannical bureaucrat punka– power abusing a–holes come at me with a needle and I will take it out of your hands and shove it up your a–. Any questions? Dial 1-800numbnut and Michael Moore will explain how personal hygiene is overrated. F–kyou and your bulls–t vaccine.”
Several pharmaceutical companies have developed potential vaccines for the virus. Vanderbilt University Medical Center worked with biotechnology firm Moderna on a vaccine. Even Dolly Parton contributed funds to its development. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical firm Pfizer announced they created a separate successful vaccine.
Ted Nugent Also Criticizes Michigan’s COVID-19 Protocols
In a recent Facebook post, Nugent also criticized Michigan’s COVID-19 measures. He wasn’t the only one. NFL quarterback Matthew Stafford’s wife also criticized the restrictions. But she later apologized.
Michigan announced new COVID-19 protocols in late Nov. The restrictions will stay in place until Dec. 8. Some of the restrictions include banning in-person instruction at schools and colleges, shutting down high school athletics, and closing dine-in restaurants, movie theaters, and casinos.
Nugent has been critical of Michigan’s governor in the past. He compared her to a “tyrant” in a past video.
“My name is Ted Nugent and I am here to cut in half any punk that decides he will try to control my life,” Nugent said in a video. “Hey Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, are you listening? You tyrant, power-abusing criminal. Wow.”
Nugent is a native of Michigan.
