In a video on Facebook, Bocelli asked for forgiveness and his apology for any suffering he caused, saying, “I had no intention of offending those who suffered Covid-19.”
Bocelli had said before the Italian Senate on Monday that he believed that the situation could not be as serious as the authorities are talking about because it is not in the circle of his acquaintances from the intensive care income because of the Corona virus. He urged people to break the rules that were still in force.
Health officials have criticized Bocelli, sparked anger on social media, and circulated sharply on Twitter, saying “Shame on you, Bocelli.”
“Let’s just focus on singing,” one Twitter user wrote to Bocelli, and said the blind opera singer was lucky to have spent the period of public isolation in “the huge villa he lived in and because he had not lost any of his family members.”
More than 35,000 Italians have lost their lives due to the Coruna virus.
In his statement of apology, Bocelli said: “For everyone who felt offended or suffering because of the way I expressed myself, which was without a doubt the best possible way to do so, and because of the words I used … I implore them to accept my sincere apologies because my intention was the exact opposite of that.” “.
