Retired sportsman goes on Twitter rant about wearing mask to protect against the coronavirus

Former MLB star Aubrey Huff faced a liberal backlash after his Twitter rant went viral, where he claimed he would rather die from coronavirus than wear a mask.

The retired sportsman, whose career spanned 13 seasons, tweeted he would no longer wear a mask inside any business, saying it's "unconstitutional to enforce."

Huff also claimed in a separate video that the "liberal left" had guilt-shamed him for "threatening the lives of millions of people."

"I understand the coronavirus is real, and if you have pre-existing conditions or you're an old person, and I know this sounds insensitive, but someone has to say it...you are morbidly obese, then stay the f*** home," Huff said.

He added:

"Just because that is your plight in life, doesn't mean the whole world has to shut down."

He then said the best thing for our country is to take the masks off to "build up our immunity" because "at some point, we're all bound to encounter it [the virus] if it's as contagious as the 'experts' say it is."

But health experts like Surgeon General Jerome Adams said wearing mask limit the spread of the virus, adding that wearing a mask gives you more freedom.

“Some feel face coverings infringe on their freedom of choice- but if more wear them, we’ll have MORE freedom to go out. Face coverings [leads to] less asymptomatic viral spread [leads to] more places open, and sooner!” Adams wrote on Twitter.

Dr. Richard Stutt, the lead author of one study, said:

“Our analyses support the immediate and universal adoption of face masks by the public."

“If widespread face mask use by the public is combined with physical distancing and some lockdown, it may offer an acceptable way of managing the pandemic and reopening economic activity long before there is a working vaccine," Dr. Stutt added.

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged Americans to wear masks to protect themselves and others against the coronavirus.

During a press conference on Thursday, the House speaker said she was concerned about people going out without masks as America prepares to reopen for business.

“Sadly, in terms of people wanting to get out, and not doing so with a mask," Pelosi said.

"Real men wear masks we always say,” Pelosi said.
