Hillary Clinton attended the elitist Met Gala this week and didn’t wear a mask, while staffers who attended to her did wear masks.
This seems to happen so often.
It’s like masks have become a class signifier. The higher a person’s status, the less likley they are to wear a mask while low status people like servers are expected to wear them.
The image of Hillary got roasted on social media.

Hillary Clinton mocked for maskless Met Gala photos while being doted on by masked staff
A photo of Hillary Clinton attending the Met Gala received some brutal reaction from Twitter users on Monday evening.
The photo depicted Clinton walking the red carpet at the celebrity-studded event in a red ball gown. The failed presidential candidate was all smiles, posing for the camera without wearing a mask, while a masked African American gentleman – who appeared to be one of the event’s staff – doted on her, adjusting her dress.
Critics slammed the image as the perfect encapsulation of elitist privilege. One said it looked like something out of “The Hunger Games.”

Right-wing radio host Austin Petersen remarked on what he perceived as the photo’s racist connotations. “From the Antebellum South, to Jim Crow, to modern America, Democrats haven’t really changed all that much. #HillaryClinton,” he tweeted.
“This photo perfectly encapsulates the current state of our country,” tweeted conservative commentator Kyle Kashuv.
Conservative vlogger Blaire White commented on Kashuv’s post, tweeting, “This photo should be in history books that discuss Covid regulations.”

How is this revolting Covid theatre continuing into another year?
The elite roam mask free, while the hoi polloi remain muzzled.
