WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- A video that went viral over the weekend showed a grocery shopper get mobbed and yelled at for not wearing a mask.

A video that was posted on Facebook on Saturday showed a grocery shopper get mobbed and yelled at for not wearing a mask.
In the video, a furious crowd can be seen gathering around the woman and yelling statements such as “Get out!” “Get the f–k out of here!” and “You’re a loser!”
Other grocery shoppers continued to yell profanities at the woman, such as “Dirty ass pig!” and “Dirty ass ho!”
One man even pulled his mask down to his chin to yell at the woman.
The grocery store was identified as a ShopRite in Staten Island.
Facebook user Christine Lynn had shared the footage with the caption, “What happens in Staten Island when you don’t wear a mask at ShopRite!”
Christine said that a friend of hers had shot the video and sent it to her.
“I think video shows shameful humans at their finest,” she replied to one comment.
Another person agreed and said that they have witnessed “how ugly peoples can be” while working in a supermarket.
Christine said that she understands that everyone is anxious, but it is not an excuse to behave like this.
Other commenters seem to agree. One wrote, “Question! Why is everyone so angry??? They’re wearing masks after all, aren’t they safe???”
One person commented, “Only on SI…and the idiots complain about no mask but get up in her face.”
One user said that the situation is the same in their local Stop & Shop.
Another user commented that a similar argument happened at their local Target. They wrote, “neither were wearing masks though but one was mad the other wasn’t social distancing.”
