We’re on the verge of an apocalypse with the novel Coronavirus and people still can’t give up on hate and racism. A few days ago, singer Shamoon Ismail shared his racist two cents on Coronavirus, and of course, netizens didn’t take kindly to his remarks.

The Taare singer shared his take on how COVID-19 started because a Chinese person had to eat bats. He even threw in a racial slur, digging himself into a deeper hole. Perhaps he thought it was funny, but no one’s laughing.
