CBS Evening News posted a video on Twitter of a young man partying in Miami for Spring Break. He said, "If I get corona, I get [the virus]. At the end of the day, I'm not gonna let it stop me from partying! I've been waiting a while... we've been waiting for Miami Spring Break... for about 2 months."

These people just want to "have some fun," regardless of the global pandemic.

"We're just out here having a good time, whatever happens... happens and with the bars being closed, well find alternatives and unfortunately that sucks but we'll find ways to have fun," the drunken man continued to say.

They then interviewed a young woman...

"It's really messing up with my Spring Break, what is there to do here other than go to the bars and the beach? And they're closing all of it... I think they're blowing it way out of proportion," she (unbelievably) said.

Another woman also seemed very unphased...

"We're going to enjoy ourselves, we're having parties all-day - It's my birthday, it's St. Patrick's Day... turn up!"

It seems that everyone who is enjoying Spring Break has no idea how serious this pandemic is.

"They doing us bad... we need a refund," another Spring Breaker casually said. "This virus ain't that serious."

Of course, these comments angered a lot of people.

Many branded these youngsters as "self-absorbed" and "stupid."

And many were offended by their selfishness...

It really isn't hard to understand why.

But this week, it seems the King of Thailand is among those still failing to listen to the lockdown rules.

Why? Because he just travelled twelve-thousand miles to attend a lavish party.

Yep, really...

How can people be expected to adhere to social distancing when their own leader isn't doing so?

King Maha Vajiralongkorn has been staying at a luxury hotel in Bavaria, Germany, with his twenty girlfriends.

But, last week he took a private jet and flew to Bangkok, where he enjoyed a gigantic banquet.

According to reports, the Thai leader stopped off in Zurich, Switzerland, beforehand.

Here, he supposedly picked up his wife, Queen Suthida, who has been staying there while she self-isolates.

He then made his way to the Thai capital.

There, he was greeted by Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-ocha, and the head of the Thai armed forces, Apirat Kongsompong.

Following the party, King Maha Vajiralongkorn jumped back on his private jet...

Dropped his wife back in Switzerland, before heading back to the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl... All in the space of twenty-four hours.  And, having spoken out since, he doesn't seem to feel bad about it either: "This pandemic is not the fault of anybody. The government must solve the problem by understanding its causes. "It is necessary to establish a system and communicate it to the people and to understand it well."
