TikTok user “timmyb100,” who just returned to the United States after serving in the military in Japan for the past x years is already fed up with people who complain about having to wear a mask.
To get some of his frustrations out, he posted a video to TikTok, which has quickly gone viral for its brutal honesty. The video has more than 10-thousand comments and has been liked nearly 400-thousand times on TikTok, not to mention the shares on Twitter.
In the video, “timmyb100” makes a variety of comments about people who complain about having to wear a face mask and how it’s perpetuating the lockdown on the United States.
The TikTok user jabs at all the people complaining at the opening of the video.
“Wear a mask.”
“‘But it’s hard to breathe.'”
He then points out that there are far more restrictive masks out there.
While wearing a full face and neck covering, he asks:
“Have you ever had to wear this f**king noose? Notice you can’t really understand me, so I have to do this [pull the mask away from his mouth] to be able to f**king talk in this thing.”
He then shows an image of a soldier in a gas mask and says:
“Don’t even get me started on this ball of fun.”
The TikTok user challenges:
“You’re going to be fine. Stop being a little beta b**ch.”
“And to you other geniuses who are like, ‘This is America. I have the freedom not to wear a mask’.”
“It’s called a dress code, Kevin! The 7-11 also requires you to wear a shirt.”
He ends his rant, frustrated at the America he has returned to.
“I’ve been overseas for two and a half years in Japan. And I finally get back to America, just in time for it to shut down.”
“And you idiots are making it shut down longer. It’s a piece of cloth!”
He makes a frustrated sound, and then the words, “Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk,” appear on the screen.

I feel like this young man. I am wearing a mask, staying in. Doing what I can to keep my self & others safe. Because of the idiots that don't I am going to have to stay in longer.

For the length of time many of us have been social distancing and respecting the spaces that continue to be shut down, it is incredibly frustrating to watch as others take fewer precautions.
Once the lockdown is over, hopefully everyone will have learned something about public safety, germ-sharing, and even patience.
