  • I like Hearn but feel that he should be more sensitive re the Covid situation. Surely you shouldn’t be encouraging people to travel to other countries just so his man can earn some extra money.

    • Yes, that is a concern at this point in time. Hate to say it, but we are not thru the COVID-19 movement just yet. We still have more precautions to take regardless of what is open or closed in terms of business.

  • Scumbag doesn’t care about providing fans with entertainment, only wants to line his pockets while people risk their health.

  • The world economy can’t wait until there’s a vaccine. Proceed with necessary precautions. I’d not put a penny into the CPC regime.

  • IMO… Covid is a sham,.. The only REAL injuries from it are destroyed economies and lost business. I DONT KNOW A SINGLE PERSON THAT HAS HAD IT. But I know a ton that have lost savings, jobs, business’s, etc… Be sure to stand 6 feet apart though and walk down the aisle in the right direction. Lol
