We were going to leave this guy alone because he doesn’t have a blue check, but when we heard that he’d protected his tweets, we figured we might as well go ahead and explain what all the fuss was about since he’d mysteriously gone silent.
A lot of people are pointing to Twitter’s new rule about posting photos of random people without their permission, and we’d think that applies in this case. But how else are you going to mask-shame a woman at the airport?
But wait, the nightmare wasn’t over yet:
Oh look. Weird Al shamed a stranger then protected his tweets. @anulman pic.twitter.com/YKbyZNEanM

This thread is a scream for help.
Seek it out.
Pick up a hobby.
This is really, really sad.

Why haven’t you gotten vaccinated yet?
— BOUTROS ⽊ (@boutros555) December 18, 2021
Please get vaccinated so you can be protected. The vaccines are safe and effective.

If your vaccine and mask protect you, why do you care?

This is a weird hobby. A new one would be way better for your mental health. And stop putting strangers' faces on the internet. They didn't consent to that. ESPECIALLY the kids you posted. That's gross.

Holy shit you are in desperate need of some serious help.

I know you think you're god's little soldier for doing this.
But, you're a terrible, TERRIBLE person.
Your parents probably meant well, just like you do. But they did a bad job.

Aidan, or is it Karen?
Go see your doctor and ask for a prescription to a good anti-anxiety medicine.
You’ll be much happier navigating a world where people are different from you.

You are truly one of the most pathetic human beings I've ever encountered, congratulations Karen. You are literally this meme. pic.twitter.com/42xQOsEC43

Why are you traveling if you are this afraid? Or is it really, you like being able to call people out on what YOU believe they should be doing? Stay home and stop demanding others cater to your fear.

1. Why are you flying if you deem others so dangerous? You do know the air from mouths and noses escapes masks, right?
2. This is why you and other Canadians will end up in government concentration camps. You’ll probably walk right in if they tell you it’s for your “safety”.
