Ted Nugent brought some heat down on himself and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for comments he made prior to a Feb. 18 stop for Abbot’s campaign for governor in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Nugent in January suggested treating immigrants like “indentured servants” until they earn citizenship.
He was also chastised last month for calling President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel” during an interview with Guns.com.
The frontman recently apologized after his comments were disavowed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.
Nugent performed at Perry’s 2007 inauguration.
Abbott said Nugent’s comment was “not the kind of language I would use or endorse in any way” and believes that Nugent realizes he was wrong.
