The 20-year-old man who filmed himself punching an elderly Army veteran in a Detroit nursing home was moved to the nursing home after he was diagnosed with Covid-19, his father says.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Ok'd the transfer of Covid-19 patients to nursing homes where the most vulnerable elderly population is housed.

"He never should have been housed -- quarantine with the victim that he eventually assaulted. That should have never happened," said the suspect's father who asked not to be identified. He said his son has a history of mental health issues.

Police were unaware of the assault until after the video went viral on social media. The suspect was identified by social media users, but his name has not been released by police.

The suspect is also under investigation for beating a staffer at a group home where he was sent after being diagnosed with Covid-19 at the University of Michigan Hospital.

The attack, which was filmed by the suspect, happened on May 15 at the Westwood Nursing Home in northwest Detroit, police confirmed.

The suspect was arrested Thursday and is being held without bond on assault and battery charges.

The 75-year-old patient is being treated for his injuries at a local hospital. The man's family said they had no idea their father was taken from his apartment and placed in a nursing home in northwest Detroit. They said they tried calling him at his apartment but he didn't answer.

The viral video caught the attention of President Donald Trump, who tweeted late Thursday: "Is this even possible to believe? Can this be for real? Where is this nursing home, how is the victim doing?"

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was heavily criticized for sending Covid-19 patients to nursing homes in that state. Thousands of nursing home patients died from the coronavirus in NY before Cuomo reversed his decision.

80% of all Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. are nursing home patients and people over age 65.

Summer Walker is dismayed and disappointed that her fans continue to believe she is making up her social anxiety disorder.

The 23-year-old "Girls Need Love" singer hit out at social media trolls for questioning the legitimacy of her social anxiety struggles. The up-and-coming R&B star insisted her mental health problem is not "an act".

Summer recently blamed her social anxiety disorder for her decision to scrap a series of concert dates on The First and Last Tour.

Summer, who won Best New Artist at the 2019 Soul Train Awards, kept her acceptance speech brief due to the overwhelming anxiety of public speaking.

Her short and sweet speech led to some rude criticism online. Many of her fans accused Summer of faking her disorder.

The young singer noticed how many of her critics appeared to be "ignorant" mothers, leading her to voice concern for today's youths who also struggle with mental health disorders.

"You know, the scariest s**t I've been witnessing is that most of the women leaving negative comments like 'it's an act,' 'I don't have the right to act like this b/c (because) I'm famous, b**ch you slow' or just flat out making fun of me for being vulnerable. HAVE CHILDREN, these women have children," she vented on Instagram.

"It makes me feel soo bad cause it's clear that if the children are developing or struggling with any type of mental disorder such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, it'll be brushed to the side and will never receive any treatment because it'll just be 'an act.'"

Walker went on to reveal that she has been dealing with social anxiety since she was six. She was afraid to leave home to attend school due to anxiety, so she sympathizes with kids who are experiencing similar problems.

"These parents are probably so ignorant that instead of reading up on symptoms they just whoop the child," she continued. "sad, my s**t started at 6 so yes kids have it to."
