Ted Nugent Declaring Bankruptcy After Boycott Over Mocking Parkland Survivors Is Fake News

Ted Nugent declaring bankruptcy after a boycott over mocking Parkland shooting survivors is fake news. There is no truth that the American singer-songwriter, guitarist and gun activist had now filed for bankruptcy as a result of a boycott against him for his recent comments about the survivors of the Parkland high school shooting who are leading a gun control movement.

Where did this fake news originate? Potatriot Post published the fake news article on April 3, 2018, reporting that a boycott against Nugent led to his bankruptcy. You can read the fake news below.

A few days ago, liberals on Facebook announced that they would be boycotting Ted Nugent. Being conservatives and watching how our own boycotts destroyed Nordstrom, the NFL and the Broadway show Hamilton, we responded with a massive show of support by sharing the meme you see above more than 150K times.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough. Art Tubolls, Ted’s bankruptcy attorney, told us in an email that the boycott just cut too deeply:

“Mr. Nugent faced financial ruin the likes of which you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. 13 of the 15 albums he sold were returned by their owners and the guy who still had his autograph on his knock-off Strat decided to burn it and take the $40 loss.

Essentially, the Nugent collection has been decimated. Add that to the increased number of hunters who won’t use his guide services because he’s a pants-shitting, draft-dodging pedophile and the poor man is broke.

We’re seeking to have his debts erased so he can apply for welfare and food stamps and get on with his life.”

However, there is no truth to the above story. What is the problem with the story to make it false? For one thing, there is no legitimate news coverage of Nugent having filed for bankruptcy. Additionally, the meme referenced in the fake news contains several examples supporting the story being false. The meme has a line in small print mocking Nugent’s relevance and has an avatar in Nugent’s hat.

In actual news, Nugent has gone after 17-year-old David Hogg during an appearance on the Curtis and Cosby show for New York’s WABC Radio. The gun rights activist railed against Hogg—a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, where a 19-year-old armed with an AR-15 gunned down 17 people in February—during the interview. Nugent called Hogg and his high school peers, who have emerged as gun safety advocates since the tragedy, “not very educated” and said they “wouldn’t know an AR-15 from a pterodactyl,” the Associated Press reported.

Finally and most importantly, Potatriot Post, previously, Patriot Post carries the following disclaimer:

Potatriot Post is a whimsical playland of conservative satire.
