Ozzy Osbourne Is Selling F*ck Coronavirus T‑Shirts And Face Masks
It’s something we here at Kerrang! have been saying for well over a month now: fuck this damn coronavirus. And now, The Prince Of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne, is echoing that very sentiment with a badass new T‑shirt and face mask.
The heavy metal icon has just launched a new longsleeve tee featuring his name and a bat logo on the front (we see what you did there, Ozz), and the words ‘Fuck coronavirus!’ printed down the side. All purchases also come with a matching face mask, so just in case the message doesn’t quite sink in, you’re hammering the point twice as hard when you wear the merch on your sanctioned one walk a day.

While both pieces of kit are undoubtedly going to be pretty popular with fans, it should be noted that the face masks should not be used as a replacement for medical-grade masks as a way to prevent the virus from getting to you.
“These masks are not medical grade and are not meant to take the place of the N95 masks,” a statement explains. “They are not suitable for use in a clinical setting or where there would be significant exposure to liquid, bodily or other hazardous fluids, use in a clinical setting, or use in the presence of a high-intensity heat source or flammable gas. Please consult your local guidelines for protective face gear.”
Pick up your Fuck coronavirus! longsleeve shirt and face mask right here. Shipping begins on May 25.
Last month, Ozzy’s wife Sharon revealed that his planned trip to Switzerland for medical treatment for his Parkinson’s disease was cancelled, with it being unsafe to travel right now.
“We had to cancel our trip to Switzerland. We were meant to go on April 8 for his treatment, but we had to cancel,” she said.
“We’re just hanging in like everybody else – just trying to stay away and be quiet and just hold in there. I honestly find this such frightening times. I just think it’s a really, really frightening time to be alive.”
