Discovery Channel: Cancel "Ted Nugent's Gun Country" or face a massive boycott of your channel


Ted Nugent is a twice convicted poacher and he participates in penned/canned hunts. He is an admitted pedophile, homophobe and misogynist. He constantly spews hate speech. He recently threatened The President of the United States and The Secretary of State. He stated that if Obama gets re-elected he will shoot him. His behaviour is volatile, obnoxious and arrogant. He recently told a reporter after getting asked a question he didn't agree with, that he should perform oral sex on him ( his words were more vile). When the female producer intervened she was told by Ted that he would f**k her. He is also a draft dodger and is a vocal anti-government proponent.

As a former viewer and long time fan of the Discovery Channel, I am shocked and disappointed to know they would promote this hate speech spewing misogynist.The discovery channel used to be known for it's educational programming and content. Why on earth would they lower their standards to partner with this less than stable raving lunatic.

I am urging everyone to boycott this channel until this filth is removed. Please join me in signing this petition and share it with everyone you can. National Geographic just cancelled their program featuring trophy hunter Melissa Bachman due to public pressure. We can do this!!!

UPDATE: The first episode aired, unfortunately. It featured Ted killing a Scimitar Horned Oryx. An animal who is now extinct in the wild. This just makes it that much important to get the word out about Discovery's decision to promote Nugent.

Attention: David Zaslav

Ted Nugent is a twice convicted poacher who also participates and promotes penned/canned hunts. He is an admitted pedophile, homophobe and misogynist. He constantly spews hate speech. He recently threatened The President of the United States and The Secretary of State. He stated that if Obama gets re-elected he will shoot him. His behaviour is volatile, obnoxious and arrogant and should serve as no role model to anyone. He recently told a reporter after getting asked a question he didn't agree with, that he should perform oral sex on him ( his words were more vile). When the female producer intervened she was told by Ted that he would f**k her. He is also a draft dodger and is a vocal anti-government proponent. He has a horrible reputation and is on the radar of every animal welfare organization out there. The word is spreading amongst animal welfare groups about your decision to hire Mr. Nugent. We are a large and very vocal passionate unrelenting group of people. This will be shared far and wide on social media. National Geographic just cancelled their program featuring trophy hunter Melissa Bachman due to public pressure.

As a former viewer and long time fan of the Discovery Channel, I am shocked and disappointed to know you would promote this hate speech spewing misogynist.The discovery channel used to be known for it's educational programming and content. A channel I used to watch with my children and entire family. Why on earth would you lower your standards to partner with this less than stable raving lunatic.

I am urging everyone to boycott this channel until this filth is removed. I hope you will consider removing this program from your line-up.

Thank-you.
