Ted Nugent Fires Back at ‘SNL’ for Mocking Him
Ted Nugent clearly isn’t impressed with “Saturday Night Live’s” recent parody of him.
The late night sketch comedy program mocked the gun enthusiast over the weekend during a spoof of the Fox News morning show “Fox & Friends.” Implicit in “SNL’s” version of Nugent–played in the skit by Bill Hader–is that the right-wing rocker is, well, off his rocker.
On Monday, Nugent aired his grievances with the program’s portrayal of him on Twitter, expressing disappointment given the wealth of material “SNL” had to work with on him.
