AceShowbiz - Curmudgeonly rocker Ted Nugent has lashed out at "Satanic" trolls after receiving hate mail wishing death on the singer and his loved ones amid his battle with Covid-19.
The outspoken Republican, who had publicly denounced the coronavirus pandemic as a "scam" in recent months, went public with his diagnosis last week (19Apr21), admitting he feared he was "dying" as he "could hardly crawl out of bed."
He returned to social media on Monday (26Apr21) for another Facebook Live session, during which he blasted critics who ridiculed him online for contracting the virus, and claimed Democrats had been overjoyed by his suffering, with some even hoping his family members would die.
"If you're on the Ted Nugent Facebook Live right now, you are some great, positive, good people, and we deserve each other," he said. "Not to be confused with the Satanic gang who actually celebrates other people's suffering (sic)..."
"You have to know that there is a Satanic cult that is just demonic in their hatred and celebrating - literally celebrating - other people's suffering. I'm afraid that's the Democrat party. They are a Satanic cult. They literally throw gasoline on the fire of hurt, pain and suffering. Both literally and figuratively..."
The "Cat Scratch Fever" singer continued in his rant, "Can you imagine anyone in your life putting forth any effort or energy to write a letter to someone saying, 'I hope you die'? That's what they've been doing to my family."
"The people who hate Ted Nugent, they're Satanic. They've literally written letters celebrating my Chinese virus and literally hoping that my children and my grandchildren die - in very obscene, vulgar, hateful, demonic terms."
Nugent, who previously declared he would never get the COVID-19 vaccine, concluded his Facebook Live chat by urging his fans to "keep positive" as he wished "Godspeed" to "all the people who love their fellow man."
