This week, a video went viral of people marching through a Fort Lauderdale Target store with no masks, blasting Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It".

The stunt drew quick action from Broward County officials.

Three individuals were determined on video and the county mailed them $100 citations for stopping working to use facial coverings in public areas to assist suppress the spread of COVID-19, Broward County spokesperson Margaret Stapleton informed the paper.

"He also posted a movie on YouTube, Admit it" In celebration of Burn Your Own Mask Day we chose to disperse some liberty dust across the shoppers and workers of Goal!"

Hundreds of anti-mask activists gathered in Dublin on August 22 to stage a protest at Custom House Quay, belting out a version of O'Connor's The Foggy Dew.

Target received a fine for not enforcing hide legislation, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

The demonstration took place at a Target in Florida with a small parade of people walking through the store telling people to take off their masks while playing the Twisted Sister hit.

If a visitor complied, the group cheered.

Federal public health officials have said that masks help to prevent the spread of coronavirus and have begged the public to wear them.

"Any additional participants from the video that are able to be identified will also receive $100 citations in the mail", she stated.

Interim Assistant Police Chief Frank Sousa stated the group was gone when officers showed up.

"Can I please ask that selfishly unmasked crowds standing shoulder to shoulder protesting and ignoring Covid protective restrictions not use my music as if to suggest I support you in any way".

Danielle Schumann, a Target corporate spokeswoman, said Target requires shoppers to wear masks inside stores.

"It's sad", Nelson said.
