Bryan Adams lashed out on social media on Monday night, blaming “greedy bat eaters” for his now-cancelled three-night stint of shows in Londom.
The 60-year-old Canadian singer was supposed to start a “tenancy” of gigs at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Monday but the shows were cancelled as a result of the pandemic.
Adams didn’t hold back in his post’s foul-mouthed caption, which quickly picked up steam throughout the rest of the social media world.

Accompanied by footage of himself playing his song, “Cuts Like A Knife,” Adams lashed out at his cancelled shows. “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.”
Adams says his message to “them,” is to “go vegan,” before he added, “thanks a fucking lot.” The Kingston native went on to thank his fans and hoped “we can get the show on the road again soon.”

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.

Adams says he’ll be performing a snippet from each album he and his band were supposed to perform over the next few days.
On Tuesday morning, Adams posted another video with a piece from his song “Into The Fire,” where he apologized to “any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday.” Adams said, “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 says he has “love for all people” and sent his thoughts with everyone dealing with the pandemic around the world.

INTO THE FIRE. Title track from the same album. Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday. 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. Here’s the appropriately titled song that would have been performed tonight at the @royalalberthall . #bryanadamsintothefire #songsfromisolation #covid19 #banwetmarkets #govegan
People on Twitter snapped back at the Canadian singer, calling him racist, a jerk, and a supremacist.
On Monday night, Adams deleted his ranting tweet but he didn’t remove his original Instagram post.

So, I guess yesterday we found out that Canadian musician Bryan Adams is a racist jerk. Everyday the mask falls off someone else. Who will it be today? #BryanAdamsIsCancelled

He’s a public figure, as well as a grown man. If he isn’t smart enough to know to not post things like that on social media than he IS the idiot he has outed himself to be. #BryanAdamsIsCancelled
