Rocker and supporter of former President Donald Trump, Ted Nugent, said he thought” he was “dying” from flu symptoms and revealed he’s since tested positive for COVID-19.

“I thought I was dying, just a clusterfuck,” the 72-year-old singer explained in a NSFW video posted on Facebook. The comments were noted by Fox News in a piece published Tuesday. (RELATED: Ted Nugent: If You Don’t Agree All Lives Matter, ‘You’re A Racist’)

“Everybody told me I should not announce this, but can you hear it, I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days,” he added. (RELATED: Rocker Ted Nugent Says It’s Time To Tone Down The Violent Rhetoric)


“I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days, but I did, I crawled,” Nugent continued, while explaining how he’s had both “body aches” and a “stuffed up head.”

The “Stranglehold” hitmaker noted the date as the 19th of April 2021 “during clusterfuck pandemic…” and said he had officially tested “positive for COVID-19” after a doctor had suggested he do so, telling fans he “got the Chinese shit.”

The “Wango Tango” hitmaker also told his audience he would still not be getting the coronavirus vaccine because “nobody knows what’s in it.” The same stance he had months earlier when he said COVID-19 is “not a real pandemic” and that it’s “not a real vaccine,” the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

The Trump supporter previously called the coronavirus the “scammy pandemic” and called people who wore masks “sheep,” the Independent reported.

Months before that, the rocker labeled the coronavirus a “leftist scam to destroy (then-President Donald Trump),” the outlet noted.
