Maskless Anti-Lockdown Protester Invades Reporter's Social Distancing Space | 22 Words

An anti-lockdown protester decided the best way to fight for the senseless cause was to invade a TV reporter's personal space.

Keep scrolling to witness the disturbing footage and to see why people have been left furious over these reckless acts...

I cannot believe he did this.

The pandemic has really brought out the worst in people...

Right now the United States is the worst affected country in the world but is it because people are acting so recklessly?

Even though everal states have declared states of emergencies, it seems as though some people just don't care.

President Trump declared a national emergency to combat the coronavirus pandemic, freeing up $50 billion in federal funding and promising a screening website and drive-by tests.

The majority of usare now living in lockdown...

And even though the President promised for things to be back to normal by Easter, things certainly haven't turned out that way.

Things are simply getting worse and worse day by day...

Which has obviously resulted in mass panic and hysteria.

The importance of self-isolation has been stressed globally...

And it has been proven that locking down public areas and avoiding social situations has helped reduce the chances of spreading the already out of control virus.

But it seems that not everyone feels the need to abide by these suggestions here in the United States.

It all started in Florida. Scenes at the Clearwater Beach in Florida in March showed a lot of people completely disregarding these global warnings.

Images from the white-sand beach showed spring breakers enjoying the sun...

All of which seemed to be living in complete oblivion.

Nothing seemed to be stopping the spring breakers...

And even police warnings didn't faze the revelers.

And now, Florida currently has 40,982 active cases.

1,735 people in the state have now died, showing exactly what happens when people congregate in mass gatherings.

This seemed to bring a reality check to officials...

Because last month, The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce reported all sandy beaches within the city limits are to be closed at least through noon.

This took immediate effect across the entire state...

And people were prohibited from entering these beaches... even for walks.

But it seems that some things have started to change...

Beaches in Jacksonville, Florida, reopened to the public a few weeks ago.

This was an original goal set by the Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce...

And this follows President Trump's announcement that states must decide themselves when to lift restrictions.

Things remain far from normality.

Republican Mayor Lenny Curry said per the Daily Mail that he is letting the public back onto Duval County beaches from 5 pm Friday evening for "essential activities only" after he said he was "encouraged" by the rate of infections and hospitalizations and said there was evidence to suggest they are flattening the curve.

But what exactly do these "essential activities" include?

Curry's move means residents can go for a walk, swim, surf, run or fish, as long as they adhering to social distancing guidelines. However, sunbathing, camping overnight and gatherings of more than fifty people will be banned.

Curry warned that this certainly doesn't mean things are back to normal...

"This can be the beginning of the pathway back to normal life," he said, "Please respect and follow these limitations. Stay within the guidelines for your safety as well as for the safety of your neighbors."

Naturally, many residents of Jacksonville aren't happy about this reopening...

And many have expressed their concern about other Florida residents flocking to their beaches and not abiding by the social distancing rules.

Many have blamed the government...

And they feel that this is a foolish move when we are desperately trying to repair our country.

Others pointed out that Florida is, indeed, a hotspot for active virus cases...

Which makes it even more baffling that some of its beaches will soon be reopened.

But now the protests have been spreading all across the country...

And the most recent one that took place in Long Island is certainly an unusual - and very stupid - one! Keep scrolling for the disturbing video.

A maskless, anti-lockdown protester decided he would fight the cause in a different way...

via: Twitter

Instead of just walking through the streets with the rest of his brainless followers, he decided to invade a TV reporter's personal space and chase him away while he was trying to deliver a report.

The altercation was disgusting to watch.

Kevin Vesey was just trying to do his job but was interrupted by a very crude member of the protest, wearing a MAGA hat and a Trump shirt, that exclaimed he was "fine" to do so because he's "got hydroxychloroquine."

Vasey repeatedly told him to move away, but it was no use.

via: Twitter

The man started to get more and more agitated, even using rude hand gestures while Vasey continued his Facebook Live report.

And of course, social media users were shocked.

This user couldn't believe what they were seeing and stated that the US is on a "dark path."

Others got really emotional about the issue...

And for good reason.

Here's the shocking footage:
