National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent posted a racially derogatory image on his Facebook page that he said was an advertisement for a moving company called "2 niggers and a stolen truck."
In a March 31 post, Nugent shared the image with his comment: "Before all the braindead dishonest lying scum politically correct racist hatepunks get all goofball toxic on us here, I am simply promoting a brilliant entrepreneur in Detroit that created a clever bussiness. His words, not mine. Ya gotta luv this guy!! When in doubt whip it out!"
In addition to racist language, the image also has racial caricatures of black people:
Nugent, who wrote a column last year for conspiracy website WND praising the use of the word "nigger," even as a racial insult, frequently makes racially charged and otherwise inflammatory comments. Earlier in 2016, he caused widespread controversy for sharing anti-Semitic material on his Facebook page.
Nugent is up for re-election to the NRA's board during the gun organization's May 2016 annual meeting.
