A woman was caught on camera this week angrily berating employees at a grocery store for wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the beginning of the video, which has gone viral on the popular subreddit /r/publicfreakout, the woman starts off by yelling at employees that it’s “against the law” to force her to wear a mask in their store.
Things only went downhill from there, as she then went off on a conspiratorial tirade about the disease.
“This is just made up by Bill Gates and them, and by you wearing that!” she thundered. “You’re breathing out your toxic air, you’re breathing in the same air… you’re killing your antibodies!”
An employee at the store then asked her if she believed COVID-19 was actually real.
“I believe there’s a virus but it’s not what they say!” she fumed. “They have 98, 99 percent cure! So what kind of virus is that, we’ve all had viruses! We all get colds, you’re being lied to!”

Trump can’t stop talking about losing to someone he says is the worst candidate in history: analysis
As Election Day draws closer, some polls are showing President Trump trailing Joe Biden by double digits, and according to the Washington Post's Aaron Blake, Trump increasingly has "losing on the brain" as a result.
"At numerous junctures in recent weeks and especially over the past 10 days, Trump has referred to what it would mean if he lost, pre-blamed certain things for his potential loss, and expressed apoplexy that he could be losing to this particular opponent, Joe Biden," Blake writes.
Blake cites numerous comments from Trump where he speculates about scenarios where he loses.
Early returns in Florida show the electorate is skewing younger than in 2016
The preliminary returns in Florida show that the electorate is skewing much younger than four years ago when President Donald Trump ran against former Sec. Hillary Clinton.
"In ballots returned before in-person voting opened on Monday, Florida voters under 65 years old accounted for about half the ballots cast, marking a 12-point uptick in their share of the early vote compared to this time in 2016," CNN.com reported.
Previously, the share of the Florida electorate that is over 65 was as much as 64 percent. Now, they're just 52 percent. Older voters should be the ones voting by mail and voting early given the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic. But it appears that younger people are the ones turning out instead.
