Jimmy Neesham slams spring-breakers over ignorant Coronavirus comments
- Neesham slammed spring-breakers who travelled to Miami despite Coronavirus warning
- The all-rounder is set to represent Kings XI Punjab in the 14th edition of the IPL
Jimmy Neesham has taken to Twitter to hit out on spring-breakers, as a video emerged of spring-breakers heading to Miami despite growing fears of the Coronavirus. The New Zealand all-rounder is one of the most outspoken cricketers on social media and did not hesitate to voice his thoughts on the matter, as his damning reply put things in perspective for everyone across the world.
Despite being advised to be in isolation by the government over growing fears of contracting COVID-19, several people were filmed heading towards Miami, where one of them insinuated that he would not be bothered if the Coronavirus were to infect him.
As the person was quoted saying "If I get Corona, I get Corona. At the end of the day, I'm not going to let it stop me," Neesham suggested that certain people would be better off if they didn't voice their opinions on social media in a rather strongly worded reply.
"It always amazes me how keen idiots are to voice their stupid opinions on a public medium. Like, be stupid if you want but surely try to keep it quiet."
