In what is being described as a purported anti-mask flash mob, a woman shouting “freedom” accuses CVS of working with communist China and what the company is doing “is illegal under the U.S. Constitution.”
In the footage that has gone viral with about 470,000 hits so far, the woman says “do not ever touch us,” and claims that while she was shopping, “CVS customer service attacked me,” possibly for not wearing a face mask, although the specific details behind this incident, and at which pharmacy it occurred, are as yet still undefined.
According to one Twitter user, “These customers are freedom-loving immigrants.”
Pro-or con mask confrontations have consumed a lot of online video bandwidth in 2020. Most people have complied with mask mandates during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, whether imposed by government or by the private sector, to help stop the spread or as a cost of doing business.
But there is a segment of the population that believes that mask requirements, among other things, infringe on individual liberty. It doesn’t help matters, perhaps, that public health officials, at least initially, came out with inconsistent recommendations about facial coverings. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently recommends facial coverings in public settings along with social distancing. The agency also maintains that a mask protects both the wearer and others.
Watch the video below shared by Twitter user Mike Gee who labeled it as “Freedom-loving immigrants from communist China doing a mask free flash mob at a CVS pharmacy.”

Parenthetically, the 30-second video also shows two guys inquiring about coffee. Who knew that a CVS store sold coffee?
Social media consumers are commenting on this video as it continues to gain traction. Here are some of the responses:
These customers are freedom-loving immigrants. She is saying that CVS is working with communist China. People are not going to allow stores to tell them to wear masks anymore. I agree with her!! It is our God given right to breathe fresh oxygen and not wear masks!!

This should be a new trend. Maskless flash mobs.

This is the way you do it: not as an individual, but as a peaceful protest group. Well worth watching. Please retweet.

Chinese people know well about all the measures that communist party takes! Listen to them! They know what is going on deeper than a lot of native Americans who never experience communism.

If I can add to your post just a little.
Masks do something – they make it difficult to breathe properly, they lower the immune system, they spread bacteria, they discourage normal and healthy social interactions and they dehumanize people.

Amen. Stupid masked American sheep have to learn the meaning of the word freedom from Chinese immigrants now.

I love this! Hope it catches on! Freedom from masks!

Just look at those thoughtless,stupid jerks.Throw them out immediately! They are just ignorant,selfish idiots. They don’t deserve to be saved if they get sick but some people have decency,so they undeservingly will get equal treatment. Doubt they will learn a damn thing.

CVS will just put your participation in this flash mob into your file. You do know they have a detailed file on you? In the near future they will be able to deny you service based on your past behavior. You’ll set off the alarm going in.
