During the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made this tweet on March 22, 2020:

“We are facing a generation-defining challenge.
But America is America because of our ability to overcome adversity and challenges.
Together we will get through this and come out even stronger. #NewYorkTough”


“#NewYorkTough” soon became trending on Twitter.

#NewYorkTough shouldn’t mean standing up to #Coronavirus. #Coronavirus wins in a fight with tough guys. #NewYorkSmart is more like it. We should be smart now as we attack this virus…

#NewYorkTough this is exactly the kind of nonsense New Yorkers tell themselves. They are so tough. And Cuomo wonders why New Yorkers do stupid things. New York isn’t tough, it’s stupid.
