Ted Nugent shared his thoughts on Beyonce’s new song and its lyrics during his appearance on The Nightly Nuge. Nugent demonstrated support for the famous singer by advising individuals not to take the lyrics too seriously. Beyonce’s seventh studio album, ‘Reinassance,’ was released on July 29, 2022, after a six-year hiatus, and its upbeat dance, pop, and R&B-influenced songs quickly climbed the charts to critical acclaim. Later, however, a line from one of her songs, ‘Heated,’ which she and Drake co-wrote, drew criticism from those who viewed it as an insult to disabled people.
On their social media accounts, some claimed that ‘Spazzin’ on that ass, spazzin’ on that ass’ was an ableist slur and that the term generally refers to acting irrationally and freaking out and is derived from the word spastic. As a result of these responses to ‘Heated,’ Beyonce’s spokesperson announced that the singer had no intention of insulting or harming anyone, and that the controversial lyrics would be changed. While the majority of people believed it to be the best course of action, others disagreed.
Ted Nugent, a staunch opponent of cancel culture, supported Beyonce’s controversial song. He suggested that individuals view the performances of comedians including Sam Kinison, Richard Pryor, Rodney Dangerfield, and Robin Williams. The primary purpose of this recommendation was to remind individuals that these were merely words, so they should relax. Nugent characterized those who were provoked by them as spineless, weak, and foolish. He also provided examples of so-called controversial songs, such as “I Shot the Sheriff” by Eric Clapton and “T.N.T.” by AC/DC.
The words of Beyonce’s spokesperson are as follows: The word, which was not employed maliciously, will be replaced. Here are Nugent’s exact words: “I would advise the entire world to revisit Lenny Bruce, Sam Kinison, Richard Pryor, Rodney Dangerfield, Robin Williams, and Ted Nugent’s stand-up comedy. Yes, I’m qualified. Here is how I pursue the ultimate form of life-emancipating happiness: I relax! These are letters. Eric Clapton did not shoot the sheriff, nor does AC/DC collaborate with T.N.T. We must develop a backbone. How spineless, weak, and idiotic individuals can be provoked.” You can hear the song down below.
