AMC Theatres CEO slammed for saying he won't mandate masks to avoid 'political controversy'

On Thursday, AMC Theatres CEO Adam Aron announced his cinemas would begin reopening — but made it clear he would not require moviegoers to wear masks, because he didn't "want to be drawn into a political controversy."

Aron's justification triggered outrage, with commenters on social media slamming him for treating a public health policy as politics, and for putting his workers and customers in danger.
