What a bozo.
While the rest of us hole up indoors with hand sanitizer, one chucklehead online personality is flipping the coronavirus the bird by licking New York City subway poles, as seen in a revolting viral video. The “corona-viral” vid has racked up almost 300,000 views since being posted Wednesday to the WorldStarHipHop Twitter account.
The eight-second clip shows New York’s Zeeshan Ali — known as Princezee on YouTube — vigorously lapping a subway pole like a lollipop on an undisclosed train, while a facemask-sporting straphanger scoots away from him. As of Thursday, New York City boasts almost 2,000 cases of COVID-19, which can reside on some surfaces for up to three days.
Suffice it to say, the social media masses were none too keen on Ali’s pole-sicle routine, posting responses like, “We don’t claim him” and “What’s wrong with these people?”
One poster even suggested jailing the reckless jokester for his disgusting antics: “I feel like if they’re arresting bar and restaurant owners for staying open during the quarantine for endangering the public, they should arrest this man too.”
Unfortunately, it appears that tonguing dirty objects amid the outbreak is contagious. A woman was slammed on social media Monday after licking an airplane toilet seat for a made-up internet challenge.
Ali’s subterranean slobberfest is just of one of many “Jackass”-style vids the prolific prankster posts to his YouTube channel, which has 66,000 subscribers. In another ridiculous clip, the not-so-fresh prince can be seen showering in the middle of a subway car, in full view of the flabbergasted passengers.
The audacious personality even slapped the bum of a willing participant (unbeknownst to bystanders) on camera in a supposed social experiment testing whether onlookers would intervene.
