Weird Al Yankovic refuses parody of coronavirus | Entertainment

Fans had asked the American to make a song to the melody of My Sharona from The Knack from 1979. „No sorry. I’m not going to do “My Corona”, Weird Al his followers disappointed.

Although the comedian does not make a song about the corona virus, he sang a parody of it before My Sharona. In the song My Bologna he sings his love for sandwich sausage.

For Yankovic a parody about the corona virus might have gone too far, last month was in the radio show of Lex Gaarthuis to hear a “corona song”. The number called for not to eat Chinese anymore due to possible infection by the Corona virus. “Do not eat Chinese, then you have nothing to fear, for prevention is better than Chinese,” the song told.

The Dutch Chinese community calls the number discriminatory and hate speech and several people have reported it. Radio 10 and Gaarthuis have apologized. The video has also been removed from all channels.
