The N-word is never a comical matter but some comedians thought comparing it to coronavirus would somehow get the people going.
Comedian and podcaster Theo Von posted to Twitter saying “coughing is the new n-word” and stand up comedian Vanessa Johnston said similarly “sneezing is the new n-word.”
Twitter users and fans mostly shunning their bad humor and others cheered it on with replies like “My Cougha” and “Cougha Pleeeeze!” as reported by Vibe.
Von has yet to delete his tweet while Johnston did a post and delete but Twitter always has the receipts.
