Nugent Won't Budge

08/21/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

Rocker Ted Nugent, 51, who ticked off some people at an April concert when he criticized people who live in the U.S. who don't speak English, has removed himself from an Aug. 22 concert with KISS rather than guarantee promoters that he won't express a similar sentiment during the performance. Local Hispanic community leaders are organizing a national boycott of Nugent, reports the Associated Press, which was told by Johnny Mata of the League of United Latin American Citizens: "He needs to learn by being hit in the pocket book."
