Woman Refuses to Wear Mask in Grocery Store Confrontation: You'll 'Get Shot Outside This Parking Lot'

A woman who refused to wear a mask inside a grocery store recently was captured on camera and can be heard threatening to shoot a man that told her to put one on.

According to the video, posted to Twitter by Perez Hilton, the incident occurred at a Stater Bros supermarket in Beaumont, California. "NRA Karen! This Karen got so mad that a fellow shopper at Stater Bros supermarket in Beaumont, California, was filming her fit over refusing to wear a mask - that she threatened to SHOOT HIM!!!!!" Hilton wrote as the caption to the video.

As the video begins, the woman can be heard saying "you need to mind your own goddamn business and get the f*** out of here."

In response, the man filming the video asks one of the store employees to call the manager "because the state says you have to wear a mask."

Following, the woman disregards the man's request and says "bye" multiple times and as she waves the man filming the video away, he can be heard repeatedly saying "wear a mask."

The woman then turns to the store employee and says, "I have a mask, but I'll have an anxiety attack in two minutes, so." The man filming the video interrupts and continues to tell her to wear a mask, but the woman doubles down on her previous claim and says, "I really will. I have a medical condition. I have a note."

The man filming the video continues to tell the woman to wear a mask when she says, "you are not videotaping me because you will get shot outside this parking lot. F****** nutjob," which prompted the man filming the video to say, "OK, I'm calling the police."

As the video ends, the woman can be seen reaching into her bag and saying, "Go ahead, I'll put my mask on."

In California, there is currently a statewide mask mandate, requiring all residents to wear on when out in public, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Stater Bros Twitter account also recently published a tweet telling patrons that face masks are required when in the store.

The new coronavirus, which causes the respiratory disease COVID-19, continues to spread throughout the U.S. According to a tracker from Johns Hopkins University, there are currently over 4 million confirmed cases, as well as at least 144,524 deaths. In California, there are currently over 430,00 confirmed cases, the most across all other states, and at least 8,201 deaths.

Newsweek reached out to Stater Bros for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
