It’s true. Ted Nugent, the creator who wrote such classics like Cat Scratch Fever, went on the record and asked why we didn’t get shut down for COVID 1 through 18.
In a Facebook Live video posted last week, the rockstar with Michigan roots wondered out loud why there weren’t lockdowns during previous coronavirus discoveries
The claim earned a fact check from Snopes, which confirmed Nugent actually made the statement before labeling it bogus amid several other misleading statements about the pandemic.
“COVID-1 — and there was a COVID 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — COVID one through 18 didn’t shut anything down but woah, COVID-19,” he said during the video.
The article also states the fact-checking site Snopes confirmed that this slice of stupid did actually happen.
