The Brief: As COVID-19 cases surge across the United States, these memes drag anti-maskers for refusing to do their part to protect public health.


Anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers are two of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Anti-anti-masker memes dunk on those who refuse to protect the safety of others by wearing a mask or cloth face covering.

One of the easiest ways to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a face-covering when in public. In spite of widespread evidence that this true and repeated announcements from scientists and public health officials, some people still refuse to wear masks, citing personal discomfort or disbelief in the legitimacy of the science around it. These anti-maskers have been documented publicly freaking out in many viral videos.

In recent mask news, Walmart announced that it will mandate that customers wear face coverings in stores starting Monday, July 20th. A video by the YouTube channel Chad Goes Deep of people refusing free masks in Huntington Beach, California is…an oof size large.

As more and more people and organizations urge Americans to wear face masks, pro-mask and anti-anti-mask memes are spreading online. If you’re looking for some friendly reminders to wear a mask, check out our roundup of memes on the topic.

Many anti-anti-masker memes use names like Karen and Kevin to label people who won’t wear masks as entitled and selfish.
