A man in Scottsdale, Arizona, was caught on video berating a teen following an apparent confrontation over face masks.

The video was captured at the checkout line in a local Walgreens. It shows the maskless man failing to adhere to social distancing as he got in the faces of the 16-year-old and the teen’s 22-year-old brother. The video went viral on both Reddit and Twitter.

At the start of the video, which was posted by Twitter user @davenewworld_2 and has since amassed over 1 million views, the man is heard repeatedly saying, “How’s that?” He gets closer and closer to the older brother, who is filming the interaction.

“Don’t tell me what the f*ck to do,” he says. “I’ll talk to whoever the f*ck I want.”

The man continues, calling one of the brothers “a pimply little sh*t.” An employee is then heard trying to break up the altercation and get the man to maintain a six-feet distance from the other shoppers, to no avail.

The man then rants about people “on the left” before agreeing to “leave the store.”

“Go vote for f*cking Biden, and suck right here,” he says, grabbing his crotch on his way out of the store.

Pink News reports that before the camera started rolling, he approached the brothers in the store, asking them, “Why are you even wearing your masks your (sic) f*cking liberals?”

“Because COVID is a real disease,” one of the brothers reportedly responded.

That’s when the filming began.

The identities of all parties have not been revealed. Walgreens addressed the incident in a comment on @davenewworld_2’s post.

“I appreciate you taking your time out to let us know. I assure you this will be reported,” the company wrote.
