Ted Nugent Performed in a Florida Grocery Store a Week Before Testing Positive for COVID-19

On Monday April 19, COVID-denier Ted Nugent announced to the world that he had flu symptoms for 10 days and thought he was dying.

It turns out that Ted was performing in a grocery store in Naples, Florida, only a week earlier on April 12.

Let me repeat:


Nugent, a part-time Florida man, played a concert at Oakes Farms Seed to Table Market in Naples on April 12 while maskless. The 72-year-old has-been and his wife Shemane showed up for a song and their podcast at their friend Alfie Oakes’ famous market — infamous for customers and employees flaunting their masklessness.

Remember this from February?

Fast forward to April 12.

The grocer Oakes said that the pandemic wasn’t real.

“No one’s getting infected here, no one’s dying,” said Oakes. “I want to get the truth out. It’s a fraud, it’s a sham, and people have got to wake up.”

Seed to Table’s owner said he knows masks do not work and doesn’t believe the coronavirus has killed hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S., saying it’s “total hogwash” and “Why don’t we shut the world down because of the heart attacks? Why don’t we lock down cities because of heart attacks?”

Nugent, a big Ron DeSantis fan, said, “What happens at Seed to Table, let me tell you, you are not alone. God, family, country, freedom, law and order. We know that’s how you people live your life and even in my beloved birth state of Michigan, do not think that Gretchen Whitmer represents the heart and soul of Michigan.”

Nugent told a reporter that he was not responsible for bringing COVID-19 to the area.

“You know before Ted Nugent showed up in Naples..there was already a virus I didn’t bring it with me goofballs,” Nugent said.
