A number of “media outlets” started reported the
breaking fake news, that rocker, Ted Nugent had been shot and killed in a hunting accident. But before you go dust off your Stranglehold album, read on..
The false reporting claimed that rock musician and conservative icon Ted Nugent had been killed in a hunting accident in Montana:
Ted Nugent, 70’s rocker turned hunting guide and conservative icon, was shot and killed early this morning in a tragic hunting accident. While setting up his tree stand just outside a wildlife reserve in Montana, Nugent was fired on and hit in the chest by a hunter with a scope nearly a quarter of a mile away who believed he was a brown bear. There are no legitimate news reports of any ill fate befalling Nugent — in fact, he made a Facebook Live video with his wife Shemane on the same afternoon the death hoax starting circulating, in which they confirmed he is indeed alive and well:
Shemane later posted another live video a few minutes later in which her husband’s voice could be heard while she played with the couple’s dogs.
