Adam Corolla's Stance on Coronavirus Draws Anger, Says He Won't Apologize for His Tweet

Actor and podcaster Adam Carolla is under fire for what he tweeted about COVID-19 aka the Coronavirus, which has killed 186,000 people in the United States and 864,000 people worldwide at the time of this posting.

He tweeted, “Turns out the people dying from covid are old or sick or both. How many of you pussy’s got played ? and who’s going to get played the next time.”

Well, The Wrap caught up with Adam and asked him why he would tweet such words.

“I’m talking about this f**king hysteria that we’ve turned into. We’ve turned into hysterics… It’s not gonna work big-picture. It scares the s**t out of the kids,” he said. “Now I’m trending because I’m an a**hole.”

“No one appreciates being called a ‘p**sy.’ I get it,” he continued. “And also, I think the backlash has to do with ostensibly being right in many cases… I stand by everyone being p**sies.”

“We’re living in a callous world. You guys wanna f**king close down society, you’re gonna get some callous tweets. That’s how it works,” he added. “I don’t give a s**t. Basically, you can’t cancel me. I’m already cancelled. I’m not working in that world anyway. I’m not doing sitcoms. I’m not f**king apologizing to any of you a**holes… And by the way, you don’t accept apologies. That’s what I’ve figured out from these people anyway.”

If you don’t know, Adam is not new to controversy. Years ago he was called out by a very famous comedian for what he failed to say about her.
