Meat Loaf spent his last few years alive posting anti-BLM and, until he contracted it himself, covid conspiracy boomerbait.
Fuck that guy. Bat Out Of Hell was still a hell of an album though.

Meatloaf died of Covid. Why can’t people just say it? He was against masks. Likely not vaccinated. Shouldn’t be dead, Why? The virus doesn’t care if you are Republican or Democrat. Doesn’t care about your “values”. It is simple. If vaxxed and boosted, u have a shot. Otherwise pic.twitter.com/A0NcPdpT9A

DB: Theatrical rock superstar Meat Loaf, whose Bat Out of Hell is one of the bestselling albums of all time, has died at the age of 74. Reports say the singer and actor had recently fallen sick with COVID-19.
Outspoken vaccine critic and skeptic ‘Meatloaf’ has died of Covid. We finally figured out what he wouldn’t do for love – get vaccinated.

In an emotional statement posted to Facebook early Friday, the performer’s family said he was with his wife when he died and had said his final goodbyes to his two daughters in the past 24 hours. The star sold 100 million albums in his five-decade career and starred in movies including Fight Club, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Wayne’s World, and did a stint on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice reality-TV show.
RIP to the bat out of hell, Meatloaf, who died at 74 from COVID.

“We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man,” the family wrote in its announcement. “From his heart to your souls… don’t ever stop rocking!”
Live by the brain worms, die by the brain worms.
It broke my heart when Meat Loaf jumped off the right wing cliff. I loved his work growing up.
The whole thing's just sad.https://t.co/PQoDPdytFR

The singer’s vaccine status isn’t known, but TMZ reported that he had recently spoken out against planned vaccine mandates in Australia.
Meat Loaf had COVID, a bad case, recently. He was an anti-science mask and vaccine denier. His vaccine status not released. He mocked public health measures before he died, told a reporter ‘If I Die, I Die’.
Friends, Meat Loaf was a pandemic asshole. https://t.co/S6XJS1rgtZ
