We all understand the importance of wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is one of the primary measures of protection when outdoors and in spaces such as malls and restaurants.

Shoppers at an unnamed local supermarket were shocked when a woman stood in line without her mask in. In the video, which has gone viral on social media, a masked security guard can be seen asking the woman to put a mask on. She replies: “I don’t have one.”

As security persists in saying she needs to wear a mask in-store or she will be escorted out, she does something no-one expected: she reaches up under the skirt of her dress, and pulls her thong down and proceeds to wear it as a mask.

“Are you happy now?” she asks security.

“Whats going on?!” another shopper can be heard asking.

“This makes me sick. She is aware of the law world wide. We sit with a serious virus and a g-string will save her. Come on grow up. What must your family think?” one social media user comments below the post.

“This is not real. If you look at her taking it off, she never lifted her right leg. This was just a joke that she intentionally did,” another said, theorizing that the incident was a prank of some sort.
