It is not anti-Chinese to criticize the wet markets and animal trade. Most Chinese (I've discussed this with many Chinese who actually live in China) do not partake of and are horrified by eating bats, pangolins, bears and so on. The ones I know (younger) are very into environmentalism (because they suffer the consequences of pollution), very concerned about animal welfare, and most have animals as pets (and no, they don't eat them).

by Anonymousreply 7805/12/2020

Adams, who is a longtime vegan, has posted previously about wet markets, which sell fresh meat, fish, and produce. In Monday’s post, he promoted inaccurate claims that have often been used in racist attacks against Asian populations during the pandemic.

While wet markets in China have been investigated and linked to diseases like SARS, there are several factors that play into a pandemic. Early research suggests that the novel coronavirus responsible for COVID-19 may have started with a bat, but there’s no proof that it began because of people eating them, as Adams suggests, and the latter claim is widely regarded as false.

The more accepted — but still unproven — hypothesis is that another animal contracted the SARS CoV-2 virus from bats and passed it onto humans.

And on the theory that that contact was made at a live-animal market in Wuhan, Prof. Stephen Turner, head of the department of microbiology at Melbourne’s Monash University, told the Guardian: “I don’t think it’s conclusive by any means.”

The 60-year-old performer Adams is a known animal rights activist and constantly advocates for the vegan diet. He joins celebrities like Ricky Gervais, Joaquin Phoenix and Paul McCartney, who have also called for the closure of wet markets.

As for the accusation of there being “virus making greedy bastards” — the conspiracy of the virus being created in a lab in China has been falsely promoted by U.S. President Donald Trump as well — experts say there’s absolutely no scientific evidence behind this claim.

HuffPost Canada has reached out to Adams for comment, and will update this post if he responds.

While Adams wrote the post to apologize to fans for the cancelled shows and push his incorrect beliefs, it seemed to have mostly backfired, with many of the responses calling him and his message racist:

by Anonymousreply 7905/12/2020

THIS JUST IN - Bryan Adams issues an apology saying his comments are about wet markets and NOT about the Chinese people

Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday.

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

Why They're Called 'Wet Markets' — And What Health Risks They Might Pose

A "wet market" in Wuhan, China, is catching the blame as the probable source of the current coronavirus outbreak that's sweeping the globe.

Patients who came down with disease at the end of December all had connections to the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan China. The complex of stalls selling live fish, meat and wild animals is known in the region as a "wet market." Researchers believe the new virus probably mutated from a coronavirus common in animals and jumped over to humans in the Wuhan bazaar.

I visited the Tai Po wet market in Hong Kong, and it's quite obvious why the term "wet" is used. Live fish in open tubs splash water all over the floor. The countertops of the stalls are red with blood as fish are gutted and filleted right in front of the customers' eyes. Live turtles and crustaceans climb over each other in boxes. Melting ice adds to the slush on the floor. There's lots of water, blood, fish scales and chicken guts. Things are wet.

At the Tai Po market, a woman who runs a shellfish stall — she only wants to give her name as Mrs. Wong — says people blame wet markets for spreading disease. But she says that's not fair. Like just about everyone else in the market. Wong is wearing a surgical face mask because of the coronavirus outbreak. She's heard about the links between the wet market in Wuhan, China, and the coronavirus but doesn't think something like that would happen in Hong Kong.

"It's much cleaner in the Hong Kong markets. It's so different from what's happening in mainland China," she says. "When I go to mainland China and I'm trying to eat something, I'm concerned about what's in the food."

Meanwhile, this kind of market is not just an Asian phenomenon. There are similar markets all over the world — places where fish, poultry and other animals are slaughtered and butchered right on the premises . . .
