- Followers agreed with Mohale's concern and agreed that masks should be perceived as a sign of respect rather than rudeness
Mohale Motuang-Mhlongo took to social media to share his thoughts about constantly wearing a mask when around other people during the ongoing pandemic.
The celebrity tweeted that he had seen a pattern where, when he was at a social gathering, people would get offended if others did not remove their protective face-masks. Mohale said he was shocked to find that people took offence to the idea that others were wearing masks around them.
The star quoted how some people had responded to him constantly wearing his mask by saying they were offended that he kept the mask on because they felt it indicated Mohale thought people around him had Covid-19.
The act of wearing a mask should be seen as respect and concern for the health of others, not rudeness or distrust. Mzansi is doing their part to keep each other safe.
Mohale's tweet read:
"I don’t get this thing of people being offended by you having your mask on - they’ll be like “We don’t have COVID, take off your mask”... OR “You don’t trust us”. Pls No!"
Followers agreed that they had seen similar social trends and replied to Mohale with their own experiences:
@ItsZamasne: "It's worse when you ask them to open windows inside a taxi. Especially when someone just coughed. Yuuuu. They take so much offence"
@memory_motseki: "Or the ones that tell you that COVID is over when you ask them to step back in a queue. Yerrr batho ba leka hle"
@Rakhi74: "Akere! It's annoying"
