“Have you heard the joke about getting rid of COVID? It’s a riot!”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic in March and April 2020 was followed by the George Floyd protests in late May 2020.

“Have you heard the joke about getting rid of COVID?? It’s a riot!” was posted on Twitter by Elee Lew on June 9, 2020.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Wikipedia: George Floyd protests
The George Floyd protests are an ongoing series of protests and unrest against police brutality and racism in policing, which began in the United States in Minneapolis on May 26, 2020. These followed the the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes during an arrest the previous day.
