New York rapper Jim Jones sounds big mad. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to single out Dr. Anthony Fauci following reports and claims he may have profited from the coronavirus pandemic.
Jim Jones Has Beef W/ Dr. Fauci
Jimmy went to his Instagram page and didn’t hold back sharing his frustrations. Jones shared a snapshot suggesting Fauci’s upcoming book didn’t reach Amazon or Barnes & Noble over controversy connecting him to making bucks from COVID-19.
“Yal still gettin vaccinated just askin a question for a friend Heard th president wants to add 4 more years of high school lol Sh*t is all a joke #get ur money #provide for n protect ur family #take ur vitamins n sea moss #work out movement is medicine #take a physical once a year #mind ur f*ckin busines and live life”
According to reports, e-mails might prove the infectious disease expert didn’t take the pandemic seriously and actually downplayed it days prior to the crisis shutting down the United States.
Among the emails obtained through public records requests and released on Tuesday by Buzzfeed is one to Fauci from the managing editor of ABC News’ medical unit, sent one day after the CDC reported the first confirmed U.S. death from COVID-19. In the March 1, 2020 email the ABC editor asked whether Fauci agreed with what a source at the Department of Homeland Security told him: that epidemiology models showed that 98 million people could be infected with COVID-19 and the death toll could reach 500,000.

The Weeknd Found Inspiration During Coronavirus
Recently, singer The Weeknd said he was more inspired than ever before during the pandemic. His reasoning included a variety of things, including the Black Lives Matter movement. Weeknd also spoke on what could be summed up as his 20’s.
“I have been more inspired and creative during the pandemic than I might normally be while on the road… The pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the tensions of the election have mostly created a sense of gratitude for what I have and closeness with the people near me… I feel like I spent the last 10 years creating a sound and most of my career I’ve either been running away from it or duplicating it. After Hours was the perfect piece of art for me to show my tenure in the industry.”
