Bar Slammed For Using The Coronavirus To Throw A Corona Special

Bar Slammed For Using The Coronavirus To Throw A Corona Special

A New Zealand bar has come under fire for launching a Corona beer special while taking the mick out of the coronavirus.

House of Hood, in Hamilton, uploaded a picture of a Corona beer bottle with a face mask over the neck and a caption that read: "Let's be honest, there are worse things you can catch in Hamilton."

In another picture, it showed two blokes dressed in HAZMAT suits with Coronas as if a virus hadn't killed dozens of people.

It was attached with a caption saying: "Virus or no virus, we still think Coronas are pretty great, so while the pandemic lasts, we're selling Coronas for just $6.50, all day, every day.

"Mention your corona loving mates to let them know about this great deal and you could be sharing a free one-metre pizza this Friday at House."

When the bar uploaded the pictures, people were not impressed.

One person wrote: "More than 130 people have died and many more is still suffering, whereas you guys are making fun of it, just to earn more money for your business.

Another added: "How on earth do you think this is OK?! You wouldn't run a '$6.50 on all Aussie beers for the entire bush fire season' so why is this okay?!"

The House on Hood isn't the only place being accused of being insensitive over the coronavirus.

YouTuber-cum-boxer Logan Paul has been criticised over post he shared on Instagram.

The 24-year-old shared a picture of himself topless with four women, with all but one of them wearing gas masks.

He captioned the photo: "F**k the corona virus."

The exact intention behind the post is unclear, but it seemed many people considered it inappropriate, given the extent of the harm caused by the virus and its spread.

In total, there have been 5,974 confirmed cases and 9,239 suspected cases in the country as of earlier this week. The virus has also spread to at least 16 other countries, including Australia, Germany and France.
