Post Malone Didn't Cancel His Sold-Out Arena Show Despite Coronavirus Scare, and People Are Pissed
While concerts, music festivals, basketball games and just about every other form of large gathering have been cancelled in the wake of the coronavirus's spread, one person decided to keep the party going for better or for worse. Yes, Post Malone went ahead and threw a concert for a packed stadium in Denver last night (March 12).

As TMZ reports, Colorado hasn't officially banned large public gatherings just yet, but state officials have been urging people to cancel them by their own volition. Major sporting organizations and just about every other media company have followed suit. 

Despite an ongoing plea for people to avoid gathering in large groups, however, Post performed for a sold-out crowd at Denver's Pepsi Center. The venue seats up to 20,000 people for concerts.

While fan-shot footage suggests concertgoers had a lot of fun despite putting themselves and others in extreme danger, the social media response has not exactly been positive. Read some tweets about the ill-informed decision below.
