It looks like Bryan Adams is changing his tune. The famous Canadian singer is now apologizing to anyone who "took offence" with a controversial post he shared regarding COVID-19 earlier this week. Yesterday, Adams faced intense backlash for a disturbing Instagram post that fans are calling "racist". 

Since the fallout, the Canadian musician posted yet another video on Instagram on May 12 apologizing for his earlier actions.

The apology was in response to a rant he shared on social media just a day earlier.

He captioned this one with an apology though and not more expletive-filled comments about the virus or what might have caused it.

"Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday," he said.

Once people started seeing his original post about the COVID-19 pandemic, there was an outpouring of dissatisfaction with the singer for his explicit remarks.

In his post, Adams noted it isn't an excuse but he really just wanted to rant about animal cruelty in wet markets and promote veganism.

"I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world," he said.

The new video shows him singing "Into The Fire", a song he called "appropriately titled."

 

Through all of this, the Canadian singer's name has been trending on Twitter as people talk about what he said.

Many people were outraged by Adams' comments regarding the pandemic.

Even Simu Liu posted on Twitter about it. "It is not my intention to ‘go at’ or ‘cancel’ anyone, but to identify posts like this that condone and enable acts of hate and racism."

Liu continued, "It runs counter to everything I love about Canada. I hope Bryan does better for the millions who look up to him like I do," he said.

He also included #BummerOf69, a play on one of Adams' most famous hits.

Others tweeted things like "I was today old when I found out Bryan Adams is a racist" and "Bryan Adams did a racism."

Adams' original post that ignited the backlash talked about his cancelled residency at Royal Albert Hall "thanks to some f*cking bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards."

His message for them was "thanks a f*cking lot" and "go vegan."

Adams told the people missing out on his shows to take care of themselves.

His post was also shared on his official Twitter account but has since been deleted.
