Desiigner Claims Coronavirus Is ‘Fake’

The coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the globe, but Desiigner is not concerned.

The “Panda” rapper doesn’t believe the virus is real and has even gone so far as to call it “fake.” Taking to Instagram, a carefree Desiigner shared his thoughts on the deadly virus, which has claimed over 150,000 lives in the U.S.

“Corona is fake, gone, bro. No funny shit. Enjoy life. No cap,” he said.

The former G.O.O.D. Music signee says he’s been outside and has yet to contract corona. “We ain’t even on that type of vibe. Corona shit, man,” he added. “Honestly, that corona shit is BS. You feel me? I ain’t get sick yet. I been outside, healthy.”

Despite his beliefs, the spread of COVID-19 has only worsened. As of Monday, there were 4.78 million cases in the U.S. and 158,000 deaths, with the highest number of cases in California, Florida, and Texas.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease specialist, said that the U.S. has entered a “new phase” of the pandemic, in which the virus is now being spread by asymptomatic people.

On Friday, Desiigner dropped his Diamonds Forever two-pack featuring a pair of new songs, “Soup” and “In My Ways.”
