The Chinese coronavirus has caused major disruption around the globe.
Hollywood is one of the industries that has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic.
And one actor just floated this wild theory about the coronavirus.
It seems as though some Hollywood celebrities are going stir crazy without constantly being in the public eye.
Many of them are posting videos on social media, and some are even melting down.
British singer Sam Smith began to cry during a quarantine livestream.
Now another British celebrity is flying off the handing in light of the coronavirus.
Acclaimed actor Idris Elba, who tested positive for coronavirus but hasn’t had any symptoms, had a crazy theory about the coronavirus.
During an online interview with Oprah Winfrey, Elba said the coronavirus was Earth’s way of striking back against humans.
“Our world has been taking a kicking. We’ve damaged our world and, you know, it’s no surprise that our world is reacting to the human race,” Elba said.
This radical environmentalist talking point is nonsense.
Earth has endured catastrophes far greater than the coronavirus before man roamed the planet.
The degree to which human activity affects climate change is unknown, but that doesn’t stop activist environmentalists from using the topic as a scare tactic to glom power.
Elba continued, “There’s no surprise that a virus has been created that is going to slow us down and ultimately make us think differently about our world and ourselves . . . That’s like for me, that’s a standout thing that’s very obvious.”
The lesson we should take away from the coronavirus scare is that wet markets in South China are a terrible idea and should be shut down.
Wet markets that trade in exotic animals carrying all sorts of dangerous illness have been the source of several deadly outbreaks.
Also, the Communist Party of China suppressed evidence of the virus and spread disinformation.
One study shows that 95% of the outbreak could’ve been contained had the Chinese government acted sooner.
Elba added, “This is almost like the world’s cry out to like, ‘Hey hey hey, you’re kicking me, and what you’re doing is not good. So I’ll get rid of you,’ as any organism would do is try and get rid of an infection and maybe this is it for the world.”
That line of thinking has been used to justify nightmarish ideas like authoritarian population control.
What are your thoughts about Elba calling humans “an infection”?
