Johnny Cash's Granddaughter Ridiculed for Wearing Protective Mask

Johnny Cash's Granddaughter Ridiculed for Wearing Protective Mask

Johnny Cash's granddaughter was ridiculed for wearing a protective face mask amid the coronavirus pandemic while shopping at a grocery store recently. Rosanne Cash, the late singer's daughter, wrote about the incident in a tweet on Tuesday.

"My daughter lives in Nashville & wore her mask to buy groceries. Guy yells at her: 'Liberal p****!'" she wrote, not specifying which daughter was taunted. "Back story: she nearly died of H1N1. She was in the ICU for a week, on a ventilator for 3 days. She CANNOT get covid. The ignorance & hatred is so painful. She's trying to survive."

Americans have been urged to wear face masks while out in public to protect themselves against the coronavirus and many states have declared it mandatory. Virginia joined that list on Tuesday when Gov. Ralph Northam announced that it would be required to wear face masks inside public places as of Friday.

The new rule applies to any public place "where people can congregate in groups" but is not applicable to children under the age of 10, as well as anyone with health conditions preventing them from wearing a mask. People eating and exercising will also not be required to wear a face mask.

There has been pushback from some members of the public who are questioning the effectiveness of protective face masks, despite ample scientific evidence showing that they help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Earlier this month, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine backtracked on his original order requiring face masks to be worn in public.

"People were not going to accept the government telling them what to do," he said, according to the BBC.

Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently called people refusing to wear masks "disrespectful."

"You can literally kill someone because you did not want to wear a mask. How cruel and irresponsible would that be?" he said.
