Nick Grimshaw slammed over Brazil tweets to Harry Styles

Nick Grimshaw has sparked fury online after tweeting his friend Harry Styles to say he 'can't come to Brazil' following the news the singer's tour has been postponed in South America.

Although the Radio 1 DJ, 36, did not reference coronavirus in his tweet, many of Harry's following took offence to the message about Brazil, due to the high death rate of Covid-19 in the country.

Harry announced on Tuesday that he will again be postponing certain dates of his Fine Line world music tour due to health and safety concerns for his fans and crew members.

He posted on Twitter: 'Everyone's health and safety remains our top priority, which is why I unfortunately have to postpone all 2020 shows in South America, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand until further notice.'

Nick replied to his post, saying: 'Can't come to Brazil.' 

Some Twitter users said that it seemed like Nick was poking fun at Harry's fans who regularly tweet him to say 'come to Brazil'.

This didn't go down well with his fans who claimed his comment was insensitive due to the high rate of coronavirus deaths and millions of cases in the country.

One person said: 'So no one is gonna realise he's making a joke of the ppl who constantly say 'come to brazil'? why would he make a joke about brazil's current situation??' 

Last week Brazil became the second country to reach four million cases of coronavirus amid hopes that infections are starting to slow.

The rise of 43,773 cases brought the total to 4.04million, while another 834 fatalities took the death toll to more than 124,000.
