'Take it off': Hoard of anti-maskers storm Target store

·2-min read

A group of anti-maskers have stormed the aisles of a Target in Florida, urging others to ditch their face coverings amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

A video shared to Twitter shows a hoard of people “invading” a Target store, yelling at people to take their masks off.

“Take it off,” one of the people is heard screaming down the aisle.

“We’re not going to take it anymore,” another person yells.

Someone behind the camera is heard saying “F**king idiots” as the group of people walk down the aisle.

The video was shared by Fifty Shades of Whey on Twitter, who said the invasion happened in Florida.

Just two hours after the video was shared, it had been viewed more than 750,000 times.

“They think it’s funny...” Rex Chapman wrote on Twitter also sharing the video.

Unsurprisingly, the demonstration caused an uproar on social media.

“They woke up this morning and thought ‘Should I mildly inconvenience myself and wear a light piece of cloth on my face for an hour or so during a pandemic in order to protect other human beings ~OR~ should I ignore science and make a complete ass of myself in public on camera?’,” one person remarked on Twitter.

“I’m sorry but this is one of the reasons the world sees Americans as some of the most crass and uncouth people on earth. Such disgusting behaviour,” someone said on Twitter, to which someone else kindly asked if the whole of America could not be judged by one state.
