WTF ppl, it's called a pandemic. restaurants were the first to be closed, most by state order. He is also paying them through April 17, how many other businesses are doing that. Addionally, those employees will also rcv 100% pay through unemployment, in US. This pandemic is not his fault. Put your outrage where it factually belongs, with the communist country of China.

from those 140 million pounds he earned with that team

It's not GR's fault fully . With no business ,how could he pay salaries ?
