Next Up, Koffing To Be Removed From Pokemon Go..?

It was already weird enough this week that we got the totally-not-an-April-Fools’ reveal that the king of all Kaiju himself was making his way to Magic: The Gathering. What’s even weirder: That one of the Godzilla cards in that special set of Magic cards is about to become incredibly rare, thanks to...the novel coronavirus?
The SpaceGodzilla card in question has a title inspired by his ultimate attack from Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla...the Corona Beam.
Hmm. Yes. You can imagine why, as over a million people across the world have contracted covid-19 and deaths continue to rise, why it would be insensitive to release a Magic card with the words “Death Corona” on it.
This is on a par with the Corona beer episode, isn't it?
