Peter maffay: corona deniers harm society

Rock star peter maffay sharply criticizes some fellow musicians’ comments on the corona pandemic. "People who deny corona are harming society. That is my conviction. And they don’t just harm themselves, but above all others," the 71-year-old told the podcast "die wochentester" of the "kolner stadt-anzeiger".

He considers the negation of an existing problem to be "completely wrong". "Corona is a circumstance that you have to accept because it is there. To deny it, I consider extremely dangerous and extremely wrong."

Recently, singer michael wendler (48, "egal") declared his withdrawal from the RTL show "deutschland sucht den superstar" (germany is looking for a superstar), citing the actions of the federal government and the media in the corona pandemic. On wednesday, nena (60) triggered controversial discussions about possible conspiracy theories with a ratselhaften post on instagram – her management emphasized, however, that nena does not count itself to the camp of the corona deniers. Colleague xavier naidoo (49) commented on the singer’s post; he himself has recently repeatedly appeared in connection with conspiracy myths.
