Whoa, Ted Nugent is a hunter? He hunts animals? Nothing gets by Matt Sorum.
For some reason, the former Guns’ N’ Roses drummer dug up a photo that Nugent posted to Facebook several months ago. The Facebook caption reads: “Caeden & Poppy whackin groundhog garden terrorists! Perfect day of bow & arrow varminting!”
This Twitter user took issue with the Sorum tweet that declared Nugent a “sick individual.”
Here’s Sorum’s full retweet and reply via tmi.me:
“@ABeastAmI_EUSC2: @mattsorum @TedNugent WTF Matt? Nothing wrong with hunting. I agree that trapping isn’t the best way. And morally on the edge.” Keep it to yourself pal
“Keep it to yourself pal”? Ah, of course. The inevitable demand for freedom from criticism.
Sorum may not get how this whole Twitter thing works.
Interesting how @tednugent is allowed to spout his glorification of hunting and the NRA and I’m not allowed to defend the innocent creatures he kills at leisure ?? Remember he dodged the draft?? Who’s the real man now??
Sorum’s “not allowed” to tweet whatever he wants? Who’s stopping him?
Confirmed: Officer Sorum, self-appointed Twitter cop, doesn’t get this social media thingamabob.
I’m just sick of @tednugent rubbing our noses in it. Stay up in the bush and please don’t come out and I would be happy. Social media isn’t the place for your prize kills.
Sorum has problems sticking to Twitter’s 140-character limit for his oh-so-important missives, often relying on tmi.me to collect the overflow. We’re not going to publish all of his anti-hunting tweets because it’s a really annoying use of Twitter. But here are some of those tweets followed by the full tmi.me messages:
“@rovibe71: @mattsorum Tell us, Matt — are you a vegan?” That’s not the point , I’m just sick of Teds big mouth and narcissism , I don’t eat meat
“@najots: @mattsorum Ted said he would kill himself if Obama would be the President of the USA, still waiting……” How bout he runs in the bush with guys with bows n arrows chasing him? But he doesn’t have a weapon ??
I think some of u are missing the point , I don’t have an opinion about individuals rights , just Ted is too pushy with his rhetoric . @tednugent
“@genesisgareca: @mattsorum What the fuck is wrong with people?? Supporting a hunter and attacking someone who protects animals?” Like I said Angry people , sad , no honest rebuttal that makes sense
So far, Nugent hasn’t felt the need to respond via social media. Maybe he’s not getting enough Scary Meat Hormones or something.
Does anyone notice the reaction of these ignorant people? I truly believe the hormones and other crap they’re eating is affecting what mind they have left.
The enlightened Sorum has been a vegetarian for “over a year.”
