After an Idaho casino cancels his Aug. 4 show citing 'racist' views, a Washington tribe also backs out on two Nugent concerts.

A second Northwest Indian tribe says it doesn't want right-wing rocker Ted Nugent performing at its casino.

The News Tribune reports 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."

Ted Nugent Responds to Casino Concert Cancellation: 'I'm Not Racist'

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

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."
