Hedge-fund manager deletes tweet that US should let coronavirus ‘rampage’ through China’s communist party

Westlake Legal Group AP20040497654404 Hedge-fund manager deletes tweet that US should let coronavirus 'rampage' through China's communist party fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/us fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/world fnc e44bbe34-b49c-5958-9d39-e6bdaa7af9ed David Aaro article

Hedge-fund manager Kyle Bass targeted a Communist-backed Chinese newspaper on Sunday by saying the U.S. should abandon the country and allow the coronavirus to tear through its political party and employees of the paper.

In a since-deleted tweet, Bass, the chief investment officer of Hayman Capital Management, called Hu Xijin, the editor of the Global Times ‘ungrateful.’ The editor had tweeted he ‘appreciated’ U.S. aid but argued the country needed to help more with its actions instead of words.

“We should take our supplies and go back home,” Bass wrote on Twitter. “Let the Chinese virus rampage through the ranks of the GT [Global Times] and the rest of the Communist Party.”

CHINA SEES RECORD INCREASE IN DAILY CORONAVIRUS DEATHS; AT LEAST 908 DEAD IN ALL

The responded by referencing those killed or impacted by the virus so far.

“As an investor with 129K twitter followers, you uttered such a malicious curse,” he said. “You bring shame to investors community and social media users.CPC members are ordinary citizens, fathers, husbands, wives, daughters… Dr. Li Wenliang is one of them. You should apologize.”

CORONAVIRUS DOCTOR LI WENLIANG’S MOTHER DEMANDS ANSWERS FROM CHINA ABOUT HIS TREATMENT BY POLICE

The editor said that U.S. aid “though belated” is welcomed, “Chinese people heard from the US leaders are much more than the US aid that people actually saw in Wuhan.”

“So you still insist cursing GT and all CPC members to be infected by the new virus, right? Americans who know about China, how do you think of this investor’s curse on the Communist Party of China?” he added.

In an emailed statement to Bloomberg News Bass said he deleted the tweet because he “felt that it was too harsh for the rank and file” of the Global Times, but said he would “never apologize to a self-righteous, attempted manipulator of public opinion [referencing Xijin].”

Florida man accused of driving van into Trump-supporters’ tent reportedly smiles while entering court

The 27-year-old Florida man who police say drove a van into a tent that housed supporters for President Trump reportedly arrived in court on Sunday smiling and nodding to the cameras before he was seated, a report said.

Action News Jax reported that Gregory Timm, according to witnesses, ran over chairs and tables the day before at the Kernan Village shopping center.  Witnesses told the station that he recorded the scene moments after the incident, made an obscene gesture and sped off.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said via social media that 27-year-old Gregory William Loel Timm has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years old or older, one count of criminal mischief and driving with a suspended license. The Republican party of Duval County said it had set up the tent on Saturday in order to register voters.

The county GOP said via Twitter that six volunteers for President Donald Trump’s campaign “were intentionally targeted while registering voters.”

Local media said there were no injuries.

“Kind of out of the blue, a man approached us in a van, was waving at us, kind of a friendly demeanor, thought he was coming up to talk to us, instead he accelerated his vehicle and plowed right into our tent, our tables,” volunteer Mark Alfieri told television station WJAX.

In a tweet, GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said, “These unprovoked, senseless attacks on @realDonaldTrump’s supporters need to end.”

President Donald Trump retweeted that message and added, “Be careful tough guys who you play with!”

Timm faces two counts of aggravated assault on a victim over the age of 65, one count of criminal mischief and one count of driving while his license is suspended, the newspaper reported. Sunday, his bond was set at $507,500.

Coronavirus infects 60 more passengers on Diamond Princess, bringing total to 130

Japan may test every person aboard the Diamond Princess for the coronavirus after it was determined Monday that there were 60 new cases on the quarantined ship docked off the coast of Yokohama.

The Japan Times, which first reported the increase, said the passengers will be able to disembark after test results become available. Princess Cruises did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.

PASSENGERS ASK TRUMP FOR HELP

The passengers have been confined on the ship for six days with limited outdoor activities. The New York Times reported that the ship is “host to the highest concentration of the coronavirus cases outside China.” The report said 2,600 passengers have been holed up in their cabins, and some have spoken about their anxiety.

“My whole thing is just to stay calm, because no matter what, I’m here. But every day it’s anxiety-provoking when we see the ambulances line up on the side of the ship,” one passenger told the paper.

On Monday, China’s health ministry said another 3,062 cases had been reported over the previous 24 hours, raising the Chinese mainland’s total to 40,171. The number of deaths grew by 97 to 908.

“No Luke Perry in the In Memoriam?” a fan wrote on Twitter. “He was in one of the Best Picture nominated movies…”

“Once Upon [a] Time in Hollywood was nominated for 8.2 million awards, so someone explain to me why Luke Perry wasn’t in In Memoriam?” a fan tweeted.

Other users noted that Disney star Cameron Boyce, who died at the age of 20, was also missing.

“Cameron boyce we miss and love you sm,” wrote a fan of his. “Sorry they didn’t even acknowledged [sic] this. love you angel.”

Oscars 2020: Joaquin Phoenix gives lengthy, emotional best actor acceptance speech about the state of humanity

Joaquin Phoenix gave a lengthy speech about the state of the world while accepting his Oscar for best actor at the 92nd annual Academy Awards.

Phoenix took home one of the biggest awards of the night for his role as Arthur Fleck in “Joker.” The moment marked his first Oscar win after being nominated four other times for roles like “Gladiator” and “Walk the Line.” An emotional Phoenix took the stage to note that he didn’t believe he deserves the award over his fellow nominees before launching into a lengthy rant about the state of humanity.

“I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the distressing issues that we are facing collectively and I think, at times we feel, or were made to feel, that we champion different causes,” Phoenix began. “But for me, I see commonality. I think whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against injustice.”

‘JOKER’ STAR JOAQUIN PHOENIX, DIRECTOR TODD PHILLIPS: ‘YOU CAN’T BLAME MOVIES FOR A WORLD THAT IS SO F–KED UP’

Phoenix continued: “I think that we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world and many of us, what we’re guilty of is an egocentric world view. A belief that we are the center of the universe.”

The star continued by noting the way in which human beings’ tendency to be egocentric allows them to justify things like stripping animals like cows for their babies, milk, meat and more.

“I think we fear the idea of personal change because we think that we have to sacrifice something to give something up, but human beings at our best are so inventive and creative and genius that I think when we use love and compassion as our guiding principles we can create develop and implement systems of change that are useful to all Homosapien and the environment,” Phoenix said.

The 45-year-old actor got more emotional as he noted that he hasn’t always practiced what he was now preaching on the 2020 Oscars stage.

‘JOKER’ BECOMES FIRST R-RATED MOVIE TO EARN OVER $1 BILLION

“I’ve been a scoundrel all my life. I’ve been selfish I’ve been cruel at times, hard to work with, and I’m grateful that so many in this room have given me a second chance,” he said while seemingly holding back tears. “I think that’s when we’re at our best. When we support each other. When we help each other to grow, when we guide each other toward redemption, that is the best of humanity.”

The star concluded his speech by getting choked up reading a quote from his late brother, River Phoenix.

“When he was 17, my brother wrote this lyric, he said: ‘Run to the rescue with love and peace will follow.’ Thank you.”

Phoenix had been seen as the front-runner for the award heading into Sunday’s ceremony. “Joker” won the best original score Oscar as well, and is up for the night’s final prize, best picture.

He becomes the second actor to win an Oscar for playing the notorious DC Comics villain. Heath Ledger won a posthumous Oscar for playing the Joker in “The Dark Knight” in 2008.

Oscars 2020: James Corden, Rebel Wilson bring ‘Cats’ to the Academy Awards

From the big screen to the Oscars, “Cats” has clawed its way onto the Academy Awards stage.

James Corden and Rebel Wilson — two stars from the maligned film adaptation of the Broadway hit — dressed in head-to-toe cat costumes to present the accolade for special effects.

OSCARS 2020: EMINEM SHOCKS VIEWERS WITH SURPRISE PERFORMANCE

The pair were dressed as their characters from the movie, Bustopher Jones and Jennyanydots, respectively.

“Nobody knows, better than us, the importance of good visual effects,” they joked.

The duo had a groomer backstage brushing out their coats before the appearance, and Corden let out a bemused sigh and said, “This is it, this is … show biz.”

OSCARS 2020: JOHN TRAVOLTA’S IDINA MENZEL FLUB MADE FUN OF MY JOSH GAD

After introducing the candidates but before revealing the winner, Corden and Wilson took turns batting around the stage mic as if it were a cat toy. The Oscar technician who operates the pop-up mic re-calibrated and tested it during the next commercial break and said it seemed to be fine, though he was keeping a close eye on it. “They really beat the crap out of it,” he said.
