Okay, this is not okay! The man could've just been making a call and took off his mask for a second cause the other person couldn't hear him or something! There is no reason for those two other men to go ask him why he isn't wearing a mask, much less assault him. Asking that is for the police to do! Thank goodness Mr. C didn't get hurt!

So their response to someone breaching social distancing guidelines was to... touch that person?

Assaulting someone is already stupid, but this is also completely hypocritical and redundant.
