The use of masks in public places has caused a wild debate with some people claiming that they are a method of "control" by the government. Yeah, I know. But a man in Tuscan, Arizona had a little too much to say about the issue so he had to be carried out of a supermarket by his son...
Keep scrolling to watch the disturbing video, but I must warn you, it contains some pretty foul language that many viewers might find offensive.
There have been a number of anti-masker blunders over the past few weeks...
via: TwitterBut this is perhaps the most dramatic yet.
Shoppers and employees alike were shocked to see such behavior in public.
via: TwitterBut cases similar to this are becoming more and more common as lockdown and social distancing measures continue to prevail.
As we head into the 6th month of restrictions, we've realized just how much our lives have changed.
via: Getty ImagesJanuary seems like a long time ago now, doesn't it? Our lives have been turned upside down by the coronavirus pandemic.
In the past few weeks, we've been trying to return to normality...
via: Getty ImagesBut it's been a pretty difficult ride.
But whilst things are getting back to normal, we must still take precautions.
via: Getty ImagesThis is very important because we need to stop the spread of the virus.
In fact, some precautions are becoming mandatory in some places.
via: Getty ImagesIncluding here in the U.S.
In some states, it has become mandatory to wear a face mask in certain public places.
via: Getty ImagesFor example, in some retail stores like Costco, customers are required to wear one. And not to mention public transport.
Some people are choosing to wear a face-covering regardless.
via: Getty ImagesTo provide them with peace of mind.
But there are issues with face masks that many people have discovered.
via: Getty ImagesNot only are they in short supply, after most countries in the world are requiring PPE.
But the issue that many people have discovered is how uncomfortable face masks can be.
via: Getty ImagesParticularly when they are worn for a long period of time.
They can also make it hard to breathe whilst wearing.
But obviously there has been an ongoing debate as to if they actually provide enough protection.
via: Getty ImagesThe world seems to be divided on the issue, with lots of people claiming that the masks are in fact only an accessory used to control the masses.
And that's why many are refusing to wear them.

Health experts have stressed their importance for those people that still don't get it.
via: Getty ImagesHealthline describes them as "crucial in the fight against the pandemic." They stressed that this rule is to protect others and not yourself. Wearing a mask reduces the transmission of the disease by at least half.
A lot of people have decided to take on board these expert suggestions...
via: Getty ImagesBut others have decided to be less accommodating to the idea.
Recently, one man has taken things a little too far.
via: TwitterWhile on an anti-mask tirade in a supermarket, he had to be carried out by his son who seemed to be embarrassed about his behavior.
I mean, who wouldn't be?
via: TwitterHis father was on a disturbing tirade about how everyone's a "sheep" and how we're all being "controlled."
"Look at you fools!" He says.
via: Twitter"You know it's not real!" (He's talking about the coronavirus, by the way.)
But then things took a twist when a worker at the store demanded he wears a mask or leaves the building.
via: TwitterSuddenly, he went irate, describing him, as well as other workers at the store as "r******" while repeatedly dropping the F-word wherever he could. A classic anti-masker.
Then he started yelling at someone else that called him a "child", telling them to "come outside."
via: TwitterIf you're not familiar with aggressive language, that usually means "let's fight it out." I wish this dad would understand that he's a middle-aged man in a store basically throwing a tantrum over a piece of fabric right in front of his fully grown kids.
He starts trying to attack the man.
via: TwitterThat's when his sons get involved, as they try and stop him from doing something he'll definitely regret.
But it doesn't seem to work, as the man keeps spewing foul language.
via: TwitterSo one of the sons, the one wearing the grey shirt, takes it upon himself to end the entire thing by literally carrying his father out of the store.
But does that stop him from yelling?
via: TwitterOf course not, but at least he's out.
The rest of his maskless sons also follow behind.
via: TwitterIt seems to be an embarrassing situation for everyone involved, but I feel particularly bad for the kids as the video has now gone viral of their dad making a fool of himself. As of right now, it has been viewed 1.7 million times. Wow.
And people were definitely shocked when they saw the clip.
via: FacebookThis user "wondered what he's like behind closed doors."
While this user, who is a nurse, said this:
via: FacebookHis behavior was pretty insulting to them.
Here's the full video for those of you that haven't seen it yet:
