Comedy legend John Cleese would just like to state for the record that he thinks it’s “terribly funny” that Americans might be inclined to purchase guns during the COVID19 crisis:
It strikes me that it's terribly funny that the response of some Americans to a virus is to buy guns

We’re guessing that Cleese didn’t find the responses of some Americans to his tweet terribly funny. Here’s just a taste:
It strikes me that it's terribly funny that the response of some Europeans when their government takes their businesses from them bc of a virus is not to buy guns… pic.twitter.com/aiFBYn1yam

Will be funny when you're wishing you had one.

It’s funny to me that someone who appears very intelligent would think we’re defending against the actual virus rather than those who would take advantage of others during a crisis.
But you knew that already and decided to gaslight instead.?
