Bryan Adams, the Canadian rocker, created a stir online Monday after he posted an expletive-filled rant against the “greedy bastards” behind Chinese wet markets that he says produced the coronavirus and put his tour on hold.
Adams, 60, was scheduled to play a series of shows at London's Albert Hall starting on Monday night. In a post on Instagram, he slammed those in China who frequent wet markets.
"Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some fu----- bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold," Adams wrote. "My message to them other than 'thanks a fu----- lot' is go vegan."
His comments and song are still up on Instagram, although a similar post by Bryan was deleted from his Twitter account on Monday night. It received both praise and anger from people on social media.
