Anti-maskers slammed after ‘irresponsible’ behaviour

Anti-mask shoppers have been slammed after confronting retail workers in Melbourne over the mandatory use of face masks.

Confrontations between shoppers and retail workers have been filmed and shared on social media.

The Victorian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity has confirmed that in a state of emergency, the Chief Health Officer can make directions.

SDA National Secretary Gerard Dwyer told Ben Fordham it’s unacceptable.

“Quite frankly it’s irresponsible, it’s unlawful and it’s wrong.”
