The Canadian rockstar Bryan Adams has joined the lift of high-profile celebrities to directly link animal consumption in China to the global coronavirus outbreak that followed.

Adams attacked Chinese people by saying that the entire world is on hold now because of the people who eat bats and also advised them to go vegan. The Canadian singer was supposed to start a concert residency at the Royal Albert Hall, London this week, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

He took to Instagram to update an acoustic performance for the song “Cuts Like a Knife,” to which he added the caption blaming China for the coronavirus pandemic.

“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,” he said in the post.

Adams’ attack roots from a serious of coronavirus theories concerning the origin of coronavirus in Wuhan, China. While some state that it is a biological weapon, a huge majority believes that COVID-19 was passed on to humans from an animal source such as infected bats of pangolins.

However, no source has been identified so far with 100 percent certainty. Many early cases of coronavirus in Wuhan were reported in people who frequently visited the wet market in Wuhan that sells fresh animal meat. This led to the belief that the coronavirus, that has affected more than four million people worldwide, must have originated from infected animals.

This is not the first time that a celebrity has come forward and blamed China for global suffering. Earlier, Queen guitarist and recently-turned vegan, Brian May, criticized the meat-eating population in China for the spread of coronavirus.

Paula McCartney also called on for the abolition of wet markets in China to prevent such outbreaks in the future. He called such markets as “medieval” and even linked previous outbreaks such as SARS and bird flu to such markets.
