With 158 Million Americans told to stay home but with Orange Don decrying “our country wasn’t built to be shut down” (nytimes.com) and pledging to keep it to weeks rather than months while on this side of the Atlantic pond BoJo announcing in his evening address that those “tougher measures” have moved from possibility to reality (bbc.co.uk) with instruction that all should only leave home for at least the next next three weeks only when “absolutely necessary”, with public gatherings of more than two people banned and Inspector Knacker given powers to fine those who do not follow the rules:
Coming amid “uproar and outrage” of claims it’s unfair for some seemingly being fast tracked into being tested due to their celebrity status, with Cardi jumping to the conclusion on Instagram Live that celebrities are getting paid to say they have tested positive for coronavirus:
“We keep seeing these basketball players say like, ‘Yeah, I have the coronavirus but I don’t got no symptoms,’” Cardi begins.
“So how the f*ck am I supposed to know when Im supposed to get tested for it?!”
And repeating “Y’all n***as is playin’ with me” and identifying that “That’s my problem right there” and demanding a slice of the paycheck pie for herself:
“I’m starting to feel like y’all n***as is payin’ n***as to say that they got it, and if y’all are paying n***as to say that they got it, pay me too! Pay me too!”

While here in Blighty a positive diagnosis of Prince Charles (bbc.co.uk) explains why Brenda was so quick to head off to self-isolating at Windsor Castle, and stateside Orange Don again makes it all about himself by saying Democrats and the media want to keep businesses closed to hurt his reelection (buzzfeednews.com), Cardi’s “absolute bullsh*t” was called out by Idris Elba, one of the first celebs to tell that they had tested positive for coronavirus:
With Cardi offering a rebuttal suggesting her role and points of view are seemingly based on talking “crazy shit” and entertaining her fans:
“Sometimes I get on my Live and I be talking my crazy sh*t entertaining my fans, and people take what I say and run with it,” she declares, before clarifying her points.
Her points seemingly being to attempt to divert blame to the “mixed messages” from the populist orange bogeyman acting as face and hair figurehead of America during a crisis for which he is spectacularly unfit even to lead the queue for the toilet and that what she was really getting at before entertainingly dumping her crazy shit down a virtual conspiracy rabbit hole was to take on those deeply entrenched inequalities that others not being so entertaining had already highlighted, identifying that the public are infuriated by the fact celebrities are being tested, but that poor bugger members of the general public are not:
“A lot of these people don’t have that money! Some people don’t even have enough money to f**king afford health care!
“I feel like all this sh*t, for coronavirus treatments and testing, all that sh*t.”
With there undoubtedly being a lot of all this and all that oppotunistic shit in there and likely everywhere else where she is called upon to entertain, while British-Sri Lankan, America residing rapper M.I.A. is not holding out hope for any sort of cornovirus vaccine still likely a year and a half away:
The 44-year-old rapper seemingly implied she was an anti-vaxxer as she expressed her controversial opinion and lamented being ‘made to’ get her son vaccinated before he started school.
Seemingly talking vaccinations as a whole having danger of causing autism or causing vaccine overload and that big business is seemingly giving it to science missionary style under a hazmat duvet:
“Most of science is in bed with business,” she tweeted in response to a fan asking why she was against vaccinations. “Business is in bed with banks, banks are in bed with tech, techs in bed with us, we re in bed with corona. Corona is in bed with science. So on… the best is prevention.”
Although seemingly the appeal to nature fallacy to which she is banking on prevention from a built up immune system has over the centuries proved diseases have more ways of fatally fucking us than any length Big Pharma may be giving in the orgy described.

Despite grappling with a resurgence once America opened up again in mid May, it seems for some it has only encouraged a doubling down on conspiracy:
Madonna’s Instagram flagged for spreading coronavirus misinformation (theguardian.com).
Although previously calling out Trump for his ineffective leadership and characterisation of the viri8s as “the new hoax” (billboard.com, Mar. 2020), the long resurrected-looking legend, who tested positive for coronavirus antibodies in May and suggested she had contracted it at the end of her winter tour with symptoms no worse than “bad flu”, captioned a video of Dr. Stella Immanuel—the “great doctor” championed by Orange Don who claims to have treated cornavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine—with claims that a cornavirus vaccine has been found and available for months but withheld to “let fear control the people and let the rich get richer and the poor get poorer”.
Instagram initially blurred the video and captioned it: “False Information”. It linked users to a page debunking the claims and clarifying that there is currently no coronavirus vaccine. It also limited the spread of the video on its platform.
Hours later, it deleted the post “for making false claims about cures and prevention methods for Covid-19,” said Raki Wane, a spokesperson for the social media platform. “People who reacted to, commented on, or shared this video, will see messages directing them to authoritative information about the virus.”
Little Donnie Jr. had been banned earlier from tweeting for 12 hours on Twitter for posting the clip published by far-right, post-truth conspiracism-friendly Breitburk News, and it perhaps should also be noted but seemingly wasn’t by Madge that the “great doctor” has also in the past has claimed alien DNA was used in medical treatments as as well as warning of attempts to create a vaccine to give immunity from becoming religious (cnn.com).
While virus mocking “Say So” rapper Doja Cat was left having to eat somewhat humble pie with her “motherfucking beer version of that shit” after having to cancel her scheduled tour after experiencing “a four-day symptom freak out” (buzzfeednews.com).
