Renowned pop singer Bryan Adams has been accused of racism after a rant against “f****ng bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy b******s” for causing the coronavirus pandemic. In a recent Instagram post, the singer bemoaned that he would be unable to perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sharing his thoughts on his Instagram profile, Adams wrote, “Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some f****ng bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy b******s, 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 f****ng lot’ is go vegan.”

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.

However, Adams is not the only musician to have blamed the consumption of bats for the COVID-19 outbreak. Beatles’ Paul McCartney had earlier said, “Let’s face it, it is a little bit medieval eating bats … They will not close down these wet markets, that got us into this trouble in the first place … It wouldn’t be so bad if this is the only thing it seems like you can blame on those wet markets. It seems like Sars, avian flu, all sorts of other stuff that has afflicted us … and what’s it for? For these quite medieval practices. They need to clean up their act.”
