Adams apologises after 'bat eating' coronavirus rant

The Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams has apologised after an outburst on Instagram where he attacked “bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards” in China for the source of the coronavirus outbreak. “I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world.” His earlier comments conflated a series of theories about the origin of coronavirus in China, namely that it stemmed from meat sold in a wet market in Wuhan, and also that it was man-made in a laboratory there.
