Conservative political activist and rockstar Ted Nugent recently went live on his Facebook account and announced that after getting flu-like symptoms for the past ten days, he decided to get a coronavirus test as he said ‘I thought I was dying.’
As you know, Nugent is one of the most vocal rockstars of our era, and he often uses his social media accounts and YouTube videos to interact with his fans, share his political views, and talk about his daily life. He has also not shied away from expressing his views about the ongoing pandemic and his controversial statements have attracted a lot of attention.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Nugent has shown his support for Donald Trump’s approach and has gone even further to claim that the virus isn’t real and that it was created just to dehumanize and scare people. However, with his recent Facebook live, Nugent announced that he’s ‘got the Chinese sh*t‘ as he calls it in accordance with Trump’s naming of the virus.
In his recent live stream, Nugent said that he had been suffering flu-like symptoms for the last ten days and that he eventually decided to get tested. The results came back positive and Ted said most people told him not to announce this. However, he wanted to raise awareness as he has been going through some really hard time. He stated ‘I thought I was dying‘ and went on to say that he could ‘hardly crawl out of bed.’
Here’s what Ted Nugent said during his live stream [transcribed by MHZ]:
“You probably can’t tell because of my positive spirit and attitude which plows through all the negative but I’ve got an announcement to make and everybody told me I shouldn’t announce this but can you hear it? I’ve had flu symptoms for the last ten days. I thought I was dying. Just a clusterfuck.”
He went on to say:
“Today is April 19, 2021, during clusterfuck pandemic, Chinese virus attack 2021. I was tested positive today, I got the Chinese shit. I’ve got a stuffed-up head, body aches. My God, what a pain in the ass. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days… But I did, I crawled. I don’t look like I’ve been crawling, do I? So I was officially tested positive for COVID-19 today.”
