Yet another video has emerged of anti-masker harassment. This time, an unmasked man is calling a woman a “c*nt” and saying “eat a d*ck, b*tch” because she asked him to wear a mask. 

The video was shared on TikTok by user @wifingaround on Tuesday and received more than 10,000 views. It was also shared on Twitter by user @davenewworld_2 on Friday, where it’s been viewed more than 200,000 times. 


My wife is a Covid ICU nurse watches people die every shift. We asked this guy to put his mask on at Costco, and then… #wearadamnmask

The video starts as the man, along with his wife, is mid-argument with the woman behind the camera. 

According to the description of the video, the woman’s wife is an ICU nurse and “watches people die [of the virus] every shift.”

When they asked the man to wear his mask, he retaliated by calling her “b*tch” and “c*nt.”

The man’s wife defends him, and tells them, “You guys started it.”

The man then says, “Go eat a f*cking d*ck, c*nt,” and turns around to walk away. His wife says, “she wouldn’t go near one.”

The man again says, “Eat a d*ck, bitch.” The pair then walk away. 

An employee, who can’t be seen in the video, intervenes—but only to say the person recording must stop. 

“Time out, time out!” he says. “Whatever’s going on needs to stop. I will take it up with management, okay.” 

“He’s gotta put it on,” says the woman behind the camera. 

“Corona cop!” the man yells at them from afar. 

According to Twitter account @davenewworld_2, the incident took place at a Costco in Tucson, Arizona. 

The video emerged as a Costco in Washington state had 145 employees test positive for COVID-19. While it’s in a different state, it’s notable given the repeated anti-mask incidents that have taken place at different supermarkets, many of them Costco stores, during the pandemic.
