Bryan Adams shared a cursory apology for the inflammatory comments he made the previous day about the coronavirus pandemic.

“My apologies to everyone who offended my message from yesterday,” he wrote in a follow-up article on Instagram.

The 60-year-old singer of Summer Of ’69 previously blamed the pandemic on “the bat eating b ***** ds” in an article widely condemned as racist on social media.

“My apologies to everyone who offended my posting yesterday. No excuses, I just wanted to complain about the horrible cruelty to animals in these wet markets that could be the source of the virus and promote veganism, “he wrote.

“I love everyone and I think of everyone around the world who is dealing with this pandemic. Here is the song with the appropriate title that would have been played tonight at @royalalberthall. ‘

Like his first post, Adams included an excerpt from himself performing one of his songs from a concert now canceled at the Royal Albert Hall in London, giving the post more than a whiff of self-promotion.

Many social media users interpreted his original message as an attack on the Chinese people. According to CNN, this has happened amid new reports of anti-Asian racism and an increase in derogatory terms referring to Asians online.

“No apologies”: “My apologies to everyone who shocked my message yesterday. No excuses, I just wanted to complain about the horrible cruelty to animals in these wet markets being the possible source of the virus and promoting veganism, “he wrote.

Self-promotion: Like his first post, the singer shared his excuses with a solo acoustic performance of one of his songs that he would have played during a canceled performance in London; shown in 2018

Adams’ original post of profanity focused on the existence of wet markets for animals.

“Tonight was supposed to be the start of a concert rental at @royalalberthall, but thanks to the consumption of f **** ing bats, the sale of animals on the wet market, the virus making the b ******* hungry for viruses, everyone is now waiting, not to mention the thousands of people who suffered or died from this virus. ”

The hitman seemed to blame the people of Wuhan, China, where the virus is believed to have originated, for eating meat and selling live animals.

“My message to them other than” thank you very much “has become vegan,” he added.

Adams ended the post with more mundane apologies to fans and calls to “take care of yourself.”

He also added the hashtags “#banwetmarkets” and “#govegan”.

Although he apologized, Adams did not delete the offending post and simply deactivated comments on it.

CUTTINGS LIKE A KNIFE. A song from me. Tonight was supposed to be the start of a concert rental at @royalalberthall, but thanks to a fucking bat, the sale of animals on the wet market, the greedy bastard viruses, the whole world is now in wait, not to mention the thousands of people who suffered or died from this virus. My message to them other than “thank you very much” has become vegan. To everyone who isn’t on our shows, I wish I was there more than you think. It was great spending time alone with my kids and family, but I miss my other family, my group, my team and my fans. Take care of yourself and I hope we can get the show back on the road soon. I will perform an excerpt from each album that we were supposed to perform for the next few days.

Wet markets are markets selling produce, fish and meat, and not all wet markets sell live animals.

The hitmaker of summer 69 was widely lambasted on Twitter for the publication, which many users considered racist.

Adams’ Instagram post started innocently enough with a solo acoustic clip from his popular song Cuts Like A Knife, but the post quickly turned into pointing to the origins of the pandemic.

The response to his message was quick and several users called him for racist comments.

“Man, we were killing time / We were young and racist / We had to relax,” wrote Los Angeles Times chief movie critic Justin Chang, who paraphrased the words of Summer Of ’69.

Another user was also inspired by the success of Adams.

“BRYAN ADAMS: wrote my first true racist tweet / my career was already in decline / blaming the Chinese for my lack of income / was COVID summer one-nine,” they wrote.

Another Twitter user shared a funny photo of Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian speechless in shock.

‘Me: Cool, Bryan Adams is the world number 1! Me: see why Bryan Adams has a tendency, “they wrote above the shocked expression.

Another take followed a similar format.

“* We see that Bryan Adams has a tendency: huh, I wonder if he makes some kind of advantage # Covid19 or something”, they wrote, adding a gif of Steve Carell in the role of Michael Scott of office saying, “No. I do not like it.

Writer Rax King tweeted, “Everyone has” the racist merger of Bryan Adams “in the 2020-is-a-hot-mess pool. ‘

A user responded directly to Adams’ post with more fury than humor: “So, if I understand correctly, all this really bothered Bryan Adams?

“Well, I’m sure all the sick and dying around the world will sympathize with you for your loss. The struggle is real. For Bryan Adams, ”they wrote.

Another Twitter poster compared Adams to another rocker who was at his most popular in the 1980s.

“So Twitter has taught us two lessons related to music in the past seven days: 1) Axl Rose is not as big as we thought. 2) Bryan Adams is an even bigger ****** than we ever imagined.

Ryan was an ardent defender of veganism.

In an interview with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), he described how his love for his dogs led him to adopt a vegan diet, which excludes all meat, as well as animal by-products, including eggs and dairy products.

The organization has been criticized in the past for its anti-fur ads featuring partially covered naked women, which some critics have found to be sexist.
