Somehow, Los Angeles County still has a mask mandate in place. The authorities wanted to ensure that the lucky National Football League fans who went to the Super Bowl this last weekend did not forget. They put out this plucky tweet on Sunday.
All 75,000 attendees that witnessed the Los Angeles Rams edge out the Cincinnati Bengals missed the tweet. Or, in the alternative, they just flat out ignored the “state of emergency” in LA and decided to leave their masks at home. The entire social media universe noticed this because the Super Bowl is one of the most televised events of the year, and it was going to be hard to conceal that it looked like the crowd was from 2018.
Most people gave the regular people who attended a pass (if you can call them that when the average ticket price ended up being around $6,700). Celebrities who attended without masks, however, were crushed.
Some of our betters even had their tweets come back to haunt them.
Now I have always been on the side of personal choice. If you want to wear a mask, then wear a mask. If you want to put your kids in a mask, that is your choice. But anger starts to rise when there is an appearance of a two-tiered system of rules for thee but not for me.
The California elites should have been particularly aware of Gavin Newsom’s roasted ignoring the mandates. From his French Laundry performance to getting hammered on Twitter two weeks ago for not wearing a mask at a home playoff game before the Super Bowl, the fact that people are getting increasingly testy is not a secret. Especially the parents of young children who have had to muzzle their children against their will.
This year’s Super Bowl may very well go down as this generation’s elites “let them eat cake moments.” The narrative is crumbling, and those politicians who fail to realize that in time will pay a political price for the foreseeable future.
