Bryan Adams Accused Of Racism For Blaming Coronavirus On ‘Bat Eating Bastards’

If ever someone was going to come out on a tirade against the Chinese and their responsibility in this whole Coronavirus pandemic, I don’t think that you would have expected it to be Bryan Adams because well, I don’t think anyone really thought that Bryan Adams was necessarily a thing any more.

Nevertheless, 2020 has been a weird one and it’s the Canadian singer songwriter who said the following on Twitter and is now being accused of racism:

CUTS LIKE A KNIFE. A song by me. Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some fucking bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus. My message to them other than “thanks a fucking lot” is go vegan. To all the people missing out on our shows, I wish I could be there more than you know. It’s been great hanging out in isolation with my children and family, but I miss my other family, my band, my crew and my fans. Take care of yourselves and hope we can get the show on the road again soon. I’ll be performing a snippet from each album we were supposed to perform for the next few days.

Not really sure if racist is the first thing I would take from that rant – more that he is a major vegan and thinks Chinese people are idiots for eating bats and hosting wet markets all the time? I don’t think that’s racist, but maybe I’m wrong there as these people seem to think that it is.

Glad to hold my hands up if I’m wrong but still think it’s more aimed at people eating animals in inhumane conditions rather than the Chinese and eugenics in particular. Think my reaction it is best illustrated in that last Alex Griswold tweet, and Bryan himself even said that this was his intention in another Instagram post today where he mustered up a half hearted apology for it. The original post is still up so it’s clear that he isn’t really sorry about it at all though.

Yeah, make up your own mind about it, but I don’t think I’m gonna be boycotting Bryan Adams because of it myself. Just wouldn’t have listened to him or gone to his concerts anyway.
