TACOMA, Wash. — A second Northwest Indian tribe says it doesn’t want right-wing rocker Ted Nugent performing at its casino.

The News Tribune reports (https://is.gd/4SUu3V ) the Puyallup Tribe said Thursday it’s canceling Nugent’s concerts scheduled for Aug. 2 and 3 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington. The news came three days after Idaho’s Coeur D’Alene Tribe canceled Nugent’s Aug. 4 show over his “racist and hate-filled remarks.”

A representative of the musician did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment after business hours Thursday.

Puyallup spokesman John Weymer says the tribe had been getting a lot of pressure from Nugent critics.

Nugent is known for advocating hunting and gun rights. He has in the past referred to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel.” Nugent later apologized but maintained that Obama was a “liar.”
