Musician Ted Nugent is no stranger to controversy, and he stepped into it again with a Facebook post featuring a Photoshopped image of a stolen van with the 'n' word depicted on it.

The van in the image reads, "Two ni--ers and a stolen truck," followed by, "We move your sh-- like it was our’s," according to The New York Daily News. The photo appears to be an old one, which has circulated around racist websites for approximately two years. There is no evidence that the van is for an actual business.

Nugent added commentary with the post:

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!!

Nugent received mixed reactions from readers on Facebook, with some condemning it and others being more supportive.

One comment reads, "I like you Ted. Thanks for sharing this funny post whether it is legit or not, it is still funny."

Nugent previously caused controversy in February when he posted an image to Facebook that reportedly smeared Jewish supporters of gun control legislation. Nugent eventually apologized for that post after 10 days, saying in a statement, "Can I say oy vey? I sincerely apologize for my irresponsible re-posting of such a nasty and offensive meme."
