I'm starting to wonder if attention getting/donation enrichment was the plan all along.

For the love of god, I'm begging you all, do not look up how much the idiot bbq guy has raised on gofundme.
And yet normal businesses who follow the rules get screwed. Where's everyone else's donations?

Also what is the point of getting fined if you can crowdfund your way out of it? Makes no sense.

Imagine being the sort of person who could see the crucial need for funding at food banks and homeless shelters and be like "I'm going to give money to the BBQ guy who chose to shut down his own restaurant".

Right. And like I said before, I've eaten at Adamsons before. It's already designed like a takeout place. You queue up, they put meat on your plate and either you find a place to sit or you leave. You take your own plates away and no seated service. There is no reason why he couldn't be the most successful takeaway spot in the city but the reality is he actually doesn't believe the pandemic is that bad, doesn't believe PCR tests are accurate and thinks to some degree that all of this is a scam (his posts on IG corroborate this) while doing this under the guise of making a point for small businesses and freedom.

It's funny but for anyone who thinks the pandemic isn't a big deal and that it's just old people dying (which is a pretty horrifying frame of mind anyway, like they're valueless husks), none of them know how to respond when you ask them why they don't volunteer in an ER with all of the underappreciated HCWs.

And yes, there are far more people who could really use the funds who are good citizens doing their part.

Humans are the worst.

They sure are.

I can't wrap my head around the tantrums people have been throwing. I equate the anti-maskers/anti-vaccine to 3 year olds throwing tantrums because mommy said no.

I think you?re being harsh on 3 year olds there

The pfizer vaccine approved for use in the UK from next week

That's pretty incredible what people can do if they work together. A vaccine rolling out for a virus that wasn't even know less than a year ago.

Considering all the good BBQ joints in the city and the nonsense that has routinely come from Adamson since the pandemic started it's pretty easy for me to say I'll never be going there again.


Literal Nazi shows up to support this guy and he gives interviews to The Post Millennial and Rebel News while calling everyone else fake news.

Just a little more about the BBQ idiots and hanging out with neo-Nazis:

Yes and no.  The COVID-19 vaccines are piggybacking off a lot of research that was being done to generate a Coronavirus vaccine from SARS so it isn't like they worked entirely from scratch.  Not to try and take anything away from the significant accomplishment it will be get to a vaccine out this quickly.

I googled Skelly's name today looking for something and stumbled across this article back from April. I don't really think it's resurfaced much during this whole thing which is pretty surprising (to clarify, I knew his social media posts made it clear he's a covid denier, but didn't realize this wasn't the first time he's made the news during the pandemic):

TLDR: This guys a piece of shit.
