In an effort to fight COVID-19, masks are highly recommended to be worn by all whenever out in public. The risk of transmission with both parties wearing a mask is low, compared to not wearing a mask at all. In light of this, many artists and merch companies are now selling masks – if they weren’t already selling them before.
Dirtybird recently launched their new face mask collection, which sold out within minutes.
Some artists aren’t taking too kindly to wearing a mask, including Caspa. In a tweet shared this morning, he says he “won’t be selling face muzzles on [his] shop.”
No I won’t be selling face muzzles on my shop. Thanks for enquiring— CASPA (@caspaofficial) July 15, 2020
One of the first replies to the tweet was Black Tiger Sex Machine, questioning why he tweeted this. The two went back and forth for a short dialogue. Per the conversation, Caspa says he believes that “we’ve been lied to and told on numerous occasions, back and forth – including WHO that they are detrimental to our health walking in them and further making people sick.” Which is similar dialogue shared by other anti-mask folks.
Really? You had to do this tweet? Like you really needed to do it? You looked at your phone and thought « ha yeah let’s tweet this » … you still have time to delete it. Thanks for letting us know your opinion on face masks and people’s health though.— BTSM (@OfficialBTSM) July 15, 2020
