Post Malone Slammed For Playing Sold Out Denver Show Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
Post Malone plays a sold out show in Denver despite CDC warnings amid the Coronavirus outbreak. The singer is facing major backlash.
Post Malone is in some hot water
Singer Post Malone is in some serious hot water right now for playing a sold out show in Denver despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many shows and events have been cancelled due to the outbreak, as the CDC has warned folks to stay at home and avoid places that will have more than 200 people in attendance.
Malone, however, did not take these warnings into consideration, and played a sold out show anyways.
Getting more video from inside @pepsicenter. Thought I was seeing empty seats for @PostMalone in the middle of COVID-19 outbreak. Turns out... it's packed. So much for social distancing. #9News pic.twitter.com/8uPbHN0lEi— Ryan Haarer (@RyanHaarer) March 13, 2020
One woman told CBS Denver she opted out of attending the show, saying, "I feel like this could affect my grandparents, my younger siblings, I have a nine-year-old younger sister that doesn’t really have the best immune system, so I feel like this could affect way more than just myself."
Although Colorado's government has not completely banned gatherings, they have strongly advised against it.
Post Malone's rep has not reached out to comment further.
