Bryan Adams apologises for racist remarks
The Canadian singer was criticised recently for lashing out at Chinese wet markets in a crass manner
After coming under fire for remarks that were deemed racist against Chinese people, Canadian singer Bryan Adams has apologised. In a new post, the Summer of 69 hitmaker admitted his mistake.
"Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday," Adams wrote in the caption of a new video on Instagram in which he's singing Into the fire. While maintaining that he wasn't defending his crass remarks, Adams pointed out that he was trying to promote veganism.
"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," He added: "I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world."
Adams in his comments had lashed out Chinese wet markets in an expletive rant. “Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the Royal Albert Hall, but thanks to some f—ing bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy b*****, 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—ing lot” is go vegan, ” he had said.
