Jake Owen Posts a Picture of His Amputated Finger

“I was ‘advised’ not to post this . . . Screw em,” he tweets.

The hashtag he put on the post reads “#permashocker.”

Jake Owen actually posted a picture of his hand (WARNING: It’s not pretty) Wednesday (Aug. 21) that shows his exposed, partially amputated finger. That was the result of a nasty go-cart accident last month that crushed his hand.

“I was ‘advised’ not to post this,” he tweeted. “Screw em.”

Reactions to the post were mixed. NASCAR star Clint Bowyer posted some encouragement: “You’re still a racing sum beeeech!!!!”

Mike Wheless, a morning radio show host in Raleigh, N.C., summed up the rest of the reactions: “Disgusting yet intriguing.”
