A widely circulated video shows a woman throwing a tantrum at a newly opened Trader Joe’s in North Hollywood, California, after being told to wear a face mask in the store due to the recent spike in coronavirus infections.
In the video, the woman screams at customers and employees before slamming down her shopping basket and storming out. “You think this is okay?” she ranted. “You f**king pigs! You’re f**king Democratic pigs, all of you!”
Catching sight of the man filming her, she shouted, “That man harassed me for not wearing a mask!” She later claimed “I have a breathing problem!” and that her doctor “won’t let her” wear a mask.
COVID-19 has seen a sharp resurgence in California as the state has reopened its economy. Residents are currently required to wear a mask in public places.
