Bryan Adams Apologises For His Racist Rant

Canadian rock star Bryan Adams has apologised for his racist rant after the COVID-19 pandemic forced him to cancel gigs that were planned. Adams had used slurs such as "bat eating", "wet market animal selling" and "virus making greedy b******ds". Bryan took to his social media handles to share his views along with a video of himself playing the 1983 hit track "Cuts like a knife". He captioned the clip: "A song by me. Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some f*******g bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy b******ds, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus." Soon after he posted his views, Adams received criticism from a section of social media users. The 68 year old musician took to Instagram to apologise for his remarks, which received a lot of backlash, he wrote “Apologies to any and all that took offense to my posting yesterday," referring to his views where he blamed virus-making greedy bastards for the crisis all over the world."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. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world."
