American author Stephen King recently took to Twitter to share a meme on the potential pandemic, coronavirus, and the meme has left internet users in a dilemma. King introduced Pennywise, an evil entity, in his 1986 novel IT and in the meme, one can see Pennywise with a caption saying, “I got hand sanitizer down here' instead of the original line 'We all float down here'. The post is in reference to the novel coronavirus outbreak which has now affected approximately 90 countries.
The meme shared on March 7 has taken the internet by storm. The post has already garnered nearly two lakh likes and has been re-tweeted approximately 50,000 times. While several netizens loved the author's post for his humour, some believed that it was 'too soon' to share a laugh on the deadly virus.
