WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- One store customer was videotaped fighting his way into a Walmart in Orlando, Florida.
- The video shows the customer pushing one of the store employees who blocked him from entering the store for not wearing a facemask.
- The customer pushed the store employee, but ended up slipping and falling on the ground.
One store customer was recorded fighting his way into a Walmart in Orlando, Florida after one of the store employees blocked him from entering the store for not wearing a facemask.
The video was posted on social media, where it has been viewed more than 10.7 million times today. The clip shows an older man dressed in a plaid shirt and denim shorts pushing one of the store employees who blocked him at the store entrance.
“You gotta wear a mask, bro,” a witness points out off-camera.
The customer ignored this and pushed the employee backwards into the store, three times. On his third time pushing, the costumer slips and falls to the floor, drawing peals of laughter from other customers at the store.
The old man scrambles to his feet and continues to walk into the store. The employee followed him into the store, but the customer pushed him into the produce cart.
“Let the man do his job, bruh,” the customer said. “Just get a mask!”
“Hey, sir, everybody got on masks, man,” said the first customer.
“You want a mask, man? I got some,” another person offered but received no response from the old man. He continued walking into the store until the employee pulled and ordered him to exit the store.
Seeing that the employee is not going to let this go, the old man decided to walk out of the store. Before he exited the store, the employee pointed to his arms, showing the rude customer the injuries on his arms. The old man replied, “I haven’t done s*** to you!”
This incident occurred on the same day the local government implements a statewide face-covering order. Orange County issued an executive order requiring face coverings for “every person working, living, visiting or doing business” in “any public place”. The order encouraged businesses to ban the entry of persons not wearing a face covering.
Florida announced a recent spike in coronavirus cases. The Department of Health adds more than 2,900 infections to the total number of confirmed cases, which now totals 100,000 cases.
