I live in Texas, and there’s nothing I like more than a big juicy steak.

According to Queen guitarist Brian May, I – and other carnivores — might have caused the Wuhan Flu.

“This pandemic seemed to come from people eating animals, and it’s becoming more well known that eating animals is not the greatest thing for our health,” May said. “We’ve seen more of the effects of how eating animals has brought us to our knees as a species. I think it’s time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn’t abuse other species.”

The New York Post has more from the guitarist-turned-epidemic-expert:

May, who converted to veganism in January, tells the music news site that he planned to be “a bit more preachy about veganism because to me it is the way forward.” 

May isn’t the only aging rocker to criticize the world’s gustatory predilections. Earlier this week, Paul McCartney pointed his finger at China’s wet markets, whose loose regulatory measures had been blamed for the outbreak.

“They might as well be letting off atomic bombs because it’s affecting the whole world,” the former Beatle told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show. “Whoever is responsible for this is at war with the world and itself.”

Wait, May became a vegan in January?  After the Wuhan flu had already taken a huge toll in China?  So maybe he’s to blame too, under his illogical reasoning? 

At least one rocker is making some sense.  I agree with McCartney – China should pay for unleashing this on the world. 

May is obviously not placing the blame on the right people: the Chinese communist government who lied, resulting in the unimaginable death and destruction.

That’s the story, and I’ll keep repeating it until people listen. 

In the meantime, I’ll keep eating these juicy, Texas steaks.
