Kirk Cameron has sparked outrage this week after photos from his COVID-defying Christmas carol gathering went viral.

He's going to need a good excuse to get out of this one...

Evidently, a little pandemic isn't enough to break Cameron's Christmas spirit.

The actor, who is known best as Mike Seaver on the ABC sitcom, Growing Pains, made his thoughts on California's COVID restrictions very clear over the weekend.

He organized a "peaceful Christmas protest" in the parking lot of the Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks...

Where he led hundreds of unmasked Californians to gather together and sing Christmas carols, all while the state continues to be ravaged by the devastating pandemic.

The fifty-year-old had been teaming up with Sing It Louder USA to do the demonstrations over the last 2 Sundays...

While voicing his frustration that Gov. Newsom has banned mass gatherings like caroling into the holiday season.

As it stands, all individuals living in the State of California are currently ordered to stay home or at their place of residence...

Except for permitted work, local shopping, or other permitted errands, according to California All. These restrictions mean that many won't be able to see their family and loved ones over the festive period.

Prior to his most recent gathering, Cameron shared a post that encouraged his followers to come down to the protest...

All while noting how successful his previous event had gone. "Have you ever sung Christmas Carols by candlelight at a time where your state governor has prohibited that in America?" he pondered in a video where he stood in front of an American flag hoisted onto a building. "Well, this is actually happening, you can't make this up."

Well, his plea clearly worked...

Because an estimated five-hundred Californians arrived - without masks - ready to sing their hearts out.

However, when the photos from Sunday's protest were posted online...

People were nothing short of outraged.

He shared IG TV videos from the gathering...

Where, as you can see, hundreds of maskless Californian's were sandwiched together as they sang carols together.

Several children could also be seen at the gathering...

As people sang popular carols such as "Jingle Bells" and "Angels We Have Heard on High."

Cameron captioned his first video:

"Christmas in Community! Peaceful Protest in Song!" While, in the second, he wrote: "God Bless America! Joy over Fear!"

The mall's security did call the police...

But, according to TMZ, the masked officers merely told the carolers that it was important to wear masks. No one was arrested at the scene, despite orders from the governor. For more on controversial anti-maskers, keep scrolling...
