Rock star Bryan Adams has apologised after posting an expletive-laden coronavirus rant on social media.
On Monday, he wrote: “Thanks to some bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy [expletives], the whole world is now on hold.”
Many interpreted the star’s comments as anti-Asian or anti-Chinese, but he was praised by some animal rights groups.
“Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday,” Adams said in a new post on Tuesday.
“No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism.” (Text by BBC)
