I feel threatened. Back off,” along with some expletives.Viral is an ironic term these days, but the clip has logged 12 million views on Twitter plus thousands more on YouTube and other platforms.

Unwelcome videos by phone should be considered the same as either assault or invasion of privacy, subject to civil action.

I totally understand how the man feels. Being claustrophobic it’s extremely hard to wear a mask. If everyone else is wearing a mask then what’s the problem. We are told the masks work. Some has to explain medical reasons for not wearing one.

Choice has consequences. He broke the store policy. He refused to comply and made a scene. He got videotaped and kicked out. End of story. Somebody in COSTCO probably released his membership address thinking he deserved to be exposed. That somebody should be terminated ASAP and prosecuted.

Masks are a crock, but I'll wear one to avoid being accosted and possibly punching someone in the mouth, or her husband.

I have allergy induced asthma. Wearing a mask is terrifying for me as I can feel the o2 levels fall in my system and I breathe harder and harder with no luck. I finally have to drop the mask down from my nose to keep from passing out!

From Ted Todd Insurance: Thank you to everyone for their comments and messages raising awareness about a former employee at Ted Todd Insurance. Their behavior in the video is in direct conflict with our company values and their employment has been terminated. Threatening behavior and intimidation go against our core mission to be trusted agents in our community. We are also committed to immediately reviewing our internal existing culture at TTI. We ask that further concerns, questions, and any other feedback be sent to Charley Todd CEO" What self-serving drivel! You, Mr. Todd are a jerk. You fire a guy for not wearing a mask. He didn't start the fight, some Karen did. All he did was tell her to back away. I plan to write Allstate and object to your firing an employee over a useless mask. You shouldn't be an agent, you have NO moral courage to stand up to the mob.

I’m old enough to remember the concept of “newsworthy” — things were on The News because they were important. Now things are important because they are on The News. The News is Big Business, it doesn’t exist to inform or educate, it only exists to make money. Everyone’s making a buck from this poor guy — The News, Twitter/Facebook/Instagram, and the guy filming the encounter. The only one not making money is the actor, the poor schlub having a bad 30 seconds at Costco. And those 30 seconds last forever on the internet. Not only is he’s squeezed out of the profit flow, he’s lost his livelihood. Every human being should own the rights to their own face, body, image, likeness, and voice. Whether that comes in the form of copyright or trademark, I don’t know. Granted, we are all out in public places, but no one should be allowed to make money from filming us without our permission. The only way to stop this nonsense is stop the profiteering. Sue!

I have the same issue, poster 7, but that is not the main reason I refuse to wear a mask. The man may have broken Costco's rule, but it wasn't the two nanny tattletales' business to film him and post him all over the internet without his consent. They harassed this man who was minding his business. It wasn't like he told them how stupid they looked with their masks on or anything. They invaded his space. They should have reported him to Costco's management and let them handle it. If this happens to you, call for management or security and threaten to sue everybody and see how they back down. Tell the filmmakers if you find their video online, they'll hear from your lawyer. Does anyone remember when leftists insisted on being free and doing their thing? Why are they such virtue signalers now? Virtue signalers with no virtue or moral foundation.

#16, I broke Walmart's rule and the KS Governor's rule, and I do it every day. But to avoid the hassle, I went to a different Walmart, across the state line and one county south (15 miles extra) to return a battery core and buy another battery. Heat seems to be killing my old machinery batteries. In any case, video me all you want folks, I don't care, and I'm retired, and you can't get me fired, can't embarrass me at all.

The guy took off his mask because he felt claustrophobic. But then he said “I remember someone saying something to me about ‘I have cancer, I have cancer.’ I replied, ‘Well my father died of cancer.’. I didn’t understand why she was yelling at me about that.” So he doesn't understand why someone with a compromised immune system is worried about COVID exposure, but he does understand his own discomfort. Seems pretty selfish to me. If you're unwilling to wear a mask, you can order Costco delivery. The cancer lady could have done the same thing, and probably should have, rather than getting all worked up about this one scofflaw.

ATLANTA-U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao believes the UPS Hapeville Airport Hub is the perfect backdrop for President Donald Trump to announce a policy change to expedite infrastructure projects by amending the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Secretary Chao told FOX 5's Portia Bruner the environmental law is outdated and long overdue for an upgrade."Just the permitting alone can take up to seven years, so the President is announcing a new rule that will set time limits to construction permitting processes, improve the coordination between various governmental agencies, reduce the paperwork and allow more public comment," Secretary Chao told Bruner during a Skype interview Tuesday morning.

At this point, maybe Hillary is tripling down or quadrupling down. She is still beating a dead horse – the loser of the 2016 presidential election wanted the viewers of Trevor Noah’s late-night television show to know that Trump’s victory was illegitimate and she has thoughts or something. She doesn’t have any new thoughts, mind you, but she is bitterly clinging to her old thoughts. Watching a video of the interview, it is easy for anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election or is old enough to remember the administration of Bill Clinton to understand the irony in most of Hillary’s answers to the softball questions asked by Noah.
