A group of anti-mask protesters marched through a Florida Target this week, urging customers to take off their masks despite a growing number of COVID-19 cases hitting the state.
In a video that surfaced on Twitter Tuesday, a group of protesters, including some younger people, can be seen walking through storefronts and blowing up music – specifically Twisted Sisters’ “We Don’t Take It”

The group shouted “take off your mask”, “we will not take it anymore” as well as “yes, we got one” as they walked down the hall.
“We are aware of the group of guests who entered the store last night and we asked them to leave after they had removed their masks and became disruptive and rude to other customers,” a spokesman said for Target for FOX Business.
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who wrote “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” slammed the group on Twitter, saying they “do not have my permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause.”
For several months, health experts have constantly stressed that people wear masks in public environments, especially when it is difficult to get social distance. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted that masks “are likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when used extensively by people in public environments.”
