Canadian rocker Bryan Adams courted controversy on Monday after he tweeted out a fierce criticism of China, blaming the country for spreading the disease that has caused the shutdown of so much of the world economy.
As Fox News reports:
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.
It’s good to see celebrities who are brave enough to speak their minds about the true cause of the outbreak which has taken so much from everyday Americans.
