Singer sparks outrage after posting xenophobic coronavirus video


American singer and songwriter Summer Walker is facing backlash from social media users who accused her of being xenophobic and racist after posting a misleading video about the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The 23-year-old musician posted a video on Instagram accusing the people of china of spreading the coronavirus to the public with a caption that reads: Thats some trifling nasty a** sh*t.

However, many users quickly pointed out that the video in question is not related to the current outbreak of COVID-19 as it was posted two years ago.

Instead of owning up to her mistake of spreading misinformation, Walker replied to a comment, and they trifling & nasty af too so whats your point?

Many people called her out on her xenophobic post and as a result of the backlash, she deleted all of the content on her Instagram account.

She also took to her Instagram Story to address the backlash by calling people dumb for pointing out her racism and saying how the video was two years old.

Twitter users were disappointed by the news.
