Vanilla Ice concert: 2,500 tickets sold in Covid-19 hotspot Texas, Internet calls it 'the lamest way to die'
The Internet has declared that if any one of the attendees contracts Covid-19 after the Vanilla Ice concert in Texas then their family should disown them
Rapper Vanilla Ice seems to be missing the '90s pretty badly. While the whole world is still struggling with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the rapper is busy planning his concert with a '90s theme. The 52-year old rapper decided to throw a huge Independence Day concert on July 4th in Austin, Texas. While the rapper's enthusiasm to celebrate the '90s and Independence Day is appreciated, his choice of venue couldn't have been worse considering the current times and that Texas has emerged as a Covid-19 hotspot after witnessing a significant surge in the number of confirmed cases.
The concert which has been titled 'Independence Day Throwback Beach Party' is set to be held at Emerald Point Bar & Grill, located on the shores of Lake Travis, in Austin. An estimated 2,500 tickets have been reportedly sold for the concert. Although all bars in Texas have been ordered to close down in the face of spiking positive Covid-19 cases, the restaurants continue to operate. Emerald Point Bar & Grill is categorized as a restaurant, so the 'Ice Ice Baby' singer can throw his concert without getting into any major tiff with the law.
The Texas-based rapper has already begun promoting the concert heavily on his Instagram page. In one of his promotional posts, the rapper wrote, "I can’t wait to get back to this. The 90s were the best. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers we had 5.0‘s, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne’s world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. And Mortal Kombat is still better than fortnight but we got out of the house, We danced, we invented house parties in the 90s. The last of the great decades #IMissThenineties."
While the rapper and the attendees of the concert seem very keen on enjoying the special July 4th concert, Internet users decided to troll them for putting everybody's life at risk just for attending a Vanilla Ice concert. An user tweeted, "Getting the coronavirus at a Vanilla Ice concert has to be one of the lamest ways to die possible." Another user wrote, "If you get COVID because you went to the Vanilla Ice concert that somehow is the exception to closure rules, frankly, you deserve that." Another user joked, "You heard correctly, Lord. I died because I needed to see Vanilla Ice. In 2020. During the pandemic." "If you end up dying because you got #COVID19 at a Vanilla Ice #4thofJuly concert... Your soul deserves to be mocked and your family should disown you," pointed out a user.
