A woman and her male companion were captured on video screaming at a store customer who wasn’t wearing a mask because of a medical condition in what’s becoming a common occurrence across the country.

The unidentified woman is seen screaming hysterically and pointing a finger at the videographer and others with him, before complaining to store employees about the man.

“You guys are abusing your freedoms!” the woman bellows before approaching the man taking the video and accosting him briefly.

“Stop it!” she tells him as she approaches and swats at the camera phone.

“Whoa, whoa!” the man responds.

“You can’t put hands on him,” says another male out of camera shot.

“I’m gonna take your pictures and send ‘em to the cops,” the woman’s male companion says as the woman continues to screech and complain.

“Oh, you think this is cute, huh?” the male companion asks. “You think this is cute, not wearin’ a mask? I hope you die from the pandemic.”

Meanwhile, the woman continues to scream at store employees in what appears to be an attempt to get them to force the mask-less customer videoing the incident to put one on or leave.

“I have a health problem bro,” an unidentified male says.

“Go get a damn mask and put it on your faces,” the male companion demands, pointing at the group taking video.

As the couple begins to walk off, the videographer chuckles and says, “Oh my gosh, dude. Are you kidding?”

The woman then says, “It ain’t funny! It’s not funny!”

At that, the video taker says again that he has “a health problem.”

“I have a health problem too, dude, but guess what? I’m wearin’ one,” the woman’s male companion says.

“I know old people that are dying from this crap!” the woman yells.

It’s unclear where the incident occurred, but the store appears to be a Walmart outlet.

For weeks, Americans have captured similar incidents on video. People have been physically threatened, struck, and attacked for being mask-less, including in places where they are not required by local ordinance or business policy to wear one.

Last week, a woman tossed hot coffee in the faces of two men who were unmasked but sitting outside a small eatery. One of the men got up and began pummeling her and her boyfriend. The woman’s male partner called police to report an ‘assault’ but left out the part about his female companion throwing hot coffee in his face.

The outlandish behavior is not limited to the U.S. In Toronto recently, a man destroyed a glass pizza display because another customer in the eatery was mask-less.

But not all of the mask-related content posted online is of violent encounters. A video shared by YouTuber Jordan Sather this week features a young woman lampooning mask mandates.

In a non-fundraising email sent to supporters this week, the Trump campaign is now urging people to wear a mask in public when it’s not possible to socially distance.

“I think it’s something we should all try to do when we are not able to be socially distanced from others,” President Trump says in the email. “I don’t love wearing them either.

“Masks may be good, they may be just okay, or they may be great. They can possibly help us get back to our American way of life…My feeling is, we have nothing to lose, and possibly everything to gain, including the next chapter to our country. And to keep things open, whether it be schools or businesses,” the president added.

The president’s advice — and the horrendously bad behavior demonstrated by some over mask-less behaviors — comes as Holland’s top scientists said there is no evidence that masks work to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
