Despite the ongoing pandemic, there are certain groups in particular parts of the world that refuse to wear face masks when going out.

This was what one metal fan did when he made a reference to American heavy metal band Slipknot, who’s well-known for wearing masks their entire music career.

Twitter user Val (@XMaloVidaX) said in a post: “If Slipknot can wear a mask for a full set than you can wear a mask for your trip to Target!!”

The tweet has since gone viral and earned more than 100,000 likes and re-tweeted more than 30,000 times.
