Despite the hundreds of thousands of COVID deaths this past year, people are still refusing to wear face masks... and because of people like these, an entire plane recently had to deboard its passengers.

You really can't make these things up...

Now, every one of us has had to deal with the challenges 2020 threw at us...

And now we're in 2021, things seem as though they're very slowly returning to normal.

Places are reopening, restrictions are being lifted...

And the world feels a little less like an apocalypse movie.

Despite the positive changes, there are still some precautions we all have to take...

To prevent us from plummeting back into the worst of it.

In fact, some precautions are becoming mandatory in some places.

Including here in the U.S.

In the majority of states and in many countries, it has become mandatory to wear a face mask.

For example, in some retail stores, customers are required to wear one... And not to mention while traveling on public transport.

Although some people are choosing to wear a face-covering regardless...

To provide them with peace of mind.

But the issue that many people have discovered is how uncomfortable face masks can be...

Particularly when they are worn for a long period of time.

This results in some people simply refusing to wear them, or all together, mocking the importance of wearing a mask.

Countless anti-lockdown protests have taken place around the world, with people wanting to "live freely than be oppressed by masks."

Despite this, health experts have stressed their importance.

Healthline 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.

You'd think the pros would outweigh the cons, right?

Well, despite the experts' advice to stay covered in public areas, there are still people refusing to listen.

And when you're stuck on a plane with hundreds of passengers, that's a pretty selfish thing to do.

One such incident has recently resulted in hundreds of passengers having to deboard a plane... all because of 2 extremely selfish women.

Passengers were forced to deboard after one woman and her friend refused to wear masks.

The women were on a Frontier Airlines flight from Seattle to Denver last month when Alex Barkley filmed the ordeal, later posting it to Tiktok.

The pilot is heard over the intercom saying that due to the women refusing to wear masks, the other passengers would have to get off the plane.

But the women weren't done there because as people exit, one of the women can be heard saying: "Have a good day, n****r." Disgusting.

The video starts by showing the 2 women arguing with other passengers as their masks hang below their chins.

This soon escalated and the flight crew decided to take action. "Ladies and gentleman, I'm sorry. I've got to take this a step further," the pilot announces.

Other passengers can be heard yelling at the women to get off the plane.

The pilot continues: "The 2 passengers who we need to remove from the airplane are refusing to do that. We can resolve this easily but at this point, I have to ask everyone to leave the airplane."

The other passengers were understandably annoyed by the whole ordeal.

"Take your IDs and your boarding passes," the pilot says. "You can leave your personal belongings if you're gonna reboard. Please do not get involved in the altercation or you will not reboard."

The women can be seen smiling at the passengers as they leave...

"Have a good day, n****r," the woman in a red MAGA hat can be heard telling a passenger.

Seattle police officers arrived shortly after the passengers deboarded and escorted the despicable women off the plane.

Barkley, the one who uploaded the video said: "The pilot told me they both are being added to the do not fly list. They have to take a bus instead now."

A statement on the Frontier website reads that customers are required to wear a mask throughout the flight...

"This level of protection is important for everyone's well-being and if you don't wear an approved face covering, you may lose future travel privileges on Frontier."

FYI, don't be like these women...
