File this one under: “Shit we never, ever thought we’d ever have to say. Ever.” But we are not Ted Nugent. Really. Apparenly this week’s spate of Nugent-related coverage has made some people (or at least one person) confuse Idolator with the Nuge himself. Despite the fact that our coverage was overwhelmingly negative. Downright mocking, in fact. And, you know, the fact that we’re a music blog, not a crossbow-wielding, arch-conservative, classic-rocking maniac. One man’s emphatic (if totally misdirected) plea to tips@idolator is after the jump:
SUBJECT: Start protest !!!!!
Direct tv has dropped the Mens outdoor and recreation channel !!!! as of Aug 27 they no longer carry it is all they said at Direct TV, no explaination !!!!!
The sports man of america deserve to have a few channels dedicated to our sports, freekin football has 50 or more !!!
Please start a protest against Direct tv on your sites where sports man can sign a petetion to force them to bring it back.
If you go to the Direct TV web site they are real proud to announce a new Latino channel !!! They live in america let them learn english!!!!!!
Pass this on to all the sporting companies so they will pull support of Direct TV If we don’t make some noise about this Outdoor channel will be next.
I think its great that you are involved with Hunt Of A Lifetime !!!!!
Mr. [REDACTED] has since taken to forwarding us all sorts of gun-related emails. In our capacity as Ted Nugent. Probably forever. People! We’re not Ted Nugent!
