A CBS interview with spring breakers packing Florida's beaches even as the coronavirus pandemic's infection and death toll rose and states issued stay-at-home orders became a predictably viral moment.

Displaying not just youthful ignorance but general, intentional ignorance, the spring breakers boasted of ignoring social distancing recommendations and lamented how obeying them would have torpedoed SPRING BREAK, baby. This coronavirus thing wasn't something to be worried about. Suns out guns out.

One gentleman stood out amongst his generally distasteful compadres: Brady Sluder.


"If I get corona, I get corona. At the end of the day, I'm not gonna let it stop me from partying," he said. "You know I've been waiting, we've been waiting for Miami spring break for a while, about two months we've had this trip planned, two, three months, and we're just out here having a good time, whatever happens happens."



Cue the "Life, fast, etc." fast-forward button and by Sunday night Sluder had apologized on Instagram for downplaying the virus.
