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...
via: GettyAnd now we're in 2021, things seem as though they're very slowly returning to normal.
Places are reopening, restrictions are being lifted...

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

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

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

Although some people are choosing to wear a face-covering regardless...
Wear a mask or I'll break ur knees https://t.co/mn1P35stkS— Nawnii (@Nawnii)1596318319.0
But the issue that many people have discovered is how uncomfortable face masks can be...

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.

And when you're stuck on a plane with hundreds of passengers, that's a pretty selfish thing to do.
via: GettyOne 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.
via: TikTokThe 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.
via: TikTokBut 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.
via: TikTokThis 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.
via: TikTokThe 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.
via: TikTok"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...
via: TikTok"Have a good day, n****r," the woman in a red MAGA hat can be heard telling a passenger.
