Anti-Mask Guy Has Tantrum In Female Employee’s Face Then Abruptly Changes His Tone After Male Security Guard Shows Up

After a man yelled at a female employee for asking him to wear a mask but became submissive when confronted by a male security guard, it’s clear a face covering isn’t enough to cover up misogyny.

In a video circulating online, a man was caught changing his tune depending on who was speaking to him.

A female employee told him he needed to wear a mask in the store.

The man yelled at the employee: 

“Leave me alone! Stop touching me! Don’t touch me! Get away from me!”

After speaking to him for several minutes, and the man insisting she get away from him, he finally pulled a medical mask from his pocket and put it on.

However, the person recording the video also caught the man removing the mask as soon as the female employee was out of range.

The video then cuts to another confrontation between the female employee and the man. The man physically got closer to the employee and began cussing at her, his voice becoming more and more shrill.

The man screamed: 

“Let go of my f**king cart. No, let go of my f**king cart.”

Getting closer to the employee, he yelled: 

“Let go of my f**king cart! Get out of my f**king face!”

“Get the f**k out of my face! Let go of my f**king cart! Get the f**k out of here!”

When a male security guard approached and demanded the man leave the store, the man became submissive and apologetic.

But he was still required to leave the store. He was followed by the security guard, as well as two other men who appeared to be shopping in-uniform.

The video has gone viral as viewers remain dumbfounded as to why some people are behaving this way over the simple requirement to wear a mask. 

Some applauded the female employee for her vigilance in the matter. 

Some took the opportunity to critique the man’s behavior. 

Others could not believe the man was so resistant to wearing a mask. 

Others commenting agreed and also thought “no mask” should simply mean “no admission” to stores.

Though wearing a mask is supposed to help prevent the spread of viruses, people still have strong opinions about whether or not to wear one.

But just like no shirt, no shoes, no service, if a business says you have to wear one, just put it on or stay home.
