Ted Nugent drew a crowd Tuesday night for his show at Toad's Place in New Haven, Connecticut, but there was quite a crowd outside too. Protestors lined the street outside the legendary club to voice their displeasure at comments Nugent made about slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, who he said was a "17-year-old dope-smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.”

However, each time the protestors yelled "Shut him down!” the Nugent faithful chanted back with “We love Ted!” There was some shoving, but it never got out of control and there were no arrests. The show went on as scheduled with the owner of Toad's, Brian Phelps, saying, "Ted Nugent is an entertainer, and he has his own views on a lot of stuff. The entire spectrum of entertainer folks go from extreme right to extreme left, and some in the middle. But that’s got nothing to do with his show here, nor does it have anything to do with Toad’s Place. This is just a music show. His political views are his, and the media that gets involved with him.”
