An upcoming Ted Nugent concert at an Idaho casino owned by a Native American tribe has been canceled because of the conservative rocker's past "racist" remarks.  

The Coeur d'Alene Tribe on Monday said that the cancellation of the Aug. 4 concert at the casino in the northwest Idaho city of Worley was because of what it called "racist and hate-filled remarks."

The tribe says it booked Nugent without realizing he espoused "racist attitudes and views." The tribe did not detail which of Nugent's specific views it opposes, according to The Associated Press.

Officials for Nugent's music management company were out of the office on Monday and not available for comment.

Nugent in the past has referred to President Barack Obama as a "subhuman mongrel." Nugent later apologized "for using the street fight terminology of subhuman mongrel." But he maintained that Obama was a "liar" violating the Constitution.

In March, the Texas town of Longview paid Ted Nugent $16,250 not to perform at its upcoming Fourth of July celebration.

The settlement to end contract negotiations with the 65-year-old rocker stemmed from a prior verbal agreement the town had made with Nugent, which subsequently broke down over concerns that his past controversial statements and song lyrics would be inappropriate for a family audience.
