A Kentucky woman was caught on video shopping with a hole cut in he middle of her protective mask which she claimed made it “easier to breathe.”
In the video, Joe Samaan, a gas station clerk at S J Food Mart in Lexington, sees a woman entering the shop with a torn mask.
“Where did you get that mask from?” he asks the woman when she approaches the counter to pay for gas.
“Well, since we have to wear them and it makes it hard to breathe, this makes it a lot easier to breathe,” she replies.
“Cutting it?" the clerk replies. "Yeah, I’ll do that too, thanks for the advice.”
The woman then leaves the store.
The video, which the uploader titled “Karen Mask,” has already received more than 800,000 likes and nearly 9,000 comments on TikTok.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that masks should cover the mouth and nose completely.
Kentucky’s number of coronavirus cases is now at least 5,130 after rising by 253 this weekend, according to Gov. Andy Beshear.
“Overall, that number is, again, right around what we’ve been seeing, even though our testing has ramped up,” the governor said. “It suggests, at the worst, we have plateaued.”

  1. Is this stupidity... or a genius way to protest?

  2. ...some of us with different types of medical issue cannot wear the masks. In my case, it could be lethal. So when encountering these places with a "requirement"...I ask about reasonable accommodation under The American's with Disability Act. It turns out that all of these places have an exception. If you are not ill with the virus, and wearing a mask may kill you...I'll go without the mask...
