Skip to comments.Texans CEO Apologizes for Calling Coronavirus the ‘China Virus’

Houston Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair has apologized for referring to the coronavirus as the “China virus” at a charity event over the summer.
McNair reportedly made the comments at the Houston Texans Foundation Charity Golf Classic in May. Bally Sports reported that McNair told the crowd, “I’m sorry that we couldn’t get together last year because of the China Virus.”
According to the report, that line earned McNair gasps and looks of shock from the assembled crowd at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston.
“My comments at the event last May included an inappropriate choice of words,” McNair said in a statement. “I immediately apologized to people who approached me then, and I apologize again now. I know how important it is to choose my words carefully. I would never want to offend anyone.”

Of course, the coronavirus originated in China, and until our modern, extremely sensitive age, it was customary to refer to viruses and/or diseases by their country or region of origin. McNair is apparently either unaware of that cultural shift or thought he was on safe ground at one of Houston’s ritziest golf clubs.
Cal McNair took the reins of the Texans organization after his father, Texans founder and original owner Bob McNair passed away in 2018.
