On the night that was meant to be his performance, Adams posted himself singing ‘Cuts Like a Knife,’ with a caption displaying his emotions over the cancellation. The singer is also under fire for what many are calling ‘racist’ for blaming China’s exotic meat market for the recent outbreak within his caption. The songwriter had also used expletive language and his message was ‘other than thanks a fucking lot,’ was to ‘go vegan.’ He had also included the hashtags ‘banwetmarkets,’ and ‘covid_19.’

The guitarist has always been vocal about animal rights and had even become an activist for it. As a vegan, Bryan Adams has campaigned with organisations such as Green Peace, the International Whaling Commission and PETA and has taken part in active protests as well.

However Adams is not the only celebrity to have linked meat-eating to the coronavirus with former Beatles member Paul McCartney also stating that it was the markets that ‘got us into trouble in the first place.’ And Queen’s lead guitarist Brian May also saying ‘it’s time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn’t abuse other species.’

Celebrities are just like us, but when they express passionate beliefs, it becomes front page news. It’s not always a bad thing however, when it shines a light on an important cause.
