WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA: A breast cancer patient was allegedly punched in her surgery scar by an anti-mask protester outside a cancer treatment center in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. The group of demonstrators gathered outside the Cedars-Sinai Breast Health Services building in West Hollywood on Thursday afternoon, July 22, to protest against the clinic's mask mandate that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people cover their faces inside the hospital’s premises. Some of them were wearing ‘Covid is a scam’ shirts.

In an exchange between the patients and the protesters filmed by local videographer Vishal Singh, a woman who identifies herself as Kate Burns, was seen confronting them and asking them to leave. “I get treated here, get the f**k away,” Burns told the protesters. Then one of them, who was also capturing the protest on his phone, asked her the reason behind her anger as another protestor carrying a placard that read “End the Censorship of Vaccine Risks” smiled in a silly way.

“Because I’ve just gone through f**king breast cancer. And you motherf**kers are here,” Burns replied. A man then said, “That has nothing to do with you. We’re trying to help.” To which Burns fired back: “You are protesting a breast cancer fucking center. It has everything to do with me and my community. Do you know anything about chemotherapy? Do you know what happens to the immune system?” Another man then asked her if she knew about the Civil Rights Act. “F**k your civil rights,” Burns said. Another man added: “Get on the right side of history. You’ve got a lot of anger you need to release. It’s a very dangerous emotion.”

Tensions at the scene began to escalate as more far-right, anti-maskers arrived. A woman carrying a megaphone was caught on camera thrusting Burns. She also punched her a number of times. The breast cancer patient alleged on social media that she was punched in the chest and the woman also hit her around her scar area. Burns tweeted, “Just another day in the bad place.”


Several people slammed anti-maskers on the internet as a user wrote, “This is beyond foul. I have no other words. I’m boiling with anger here. Across the other side of the world.” Another one tweeted, “As a person with a compromised immune system, this is absolutely terrifying. When going in and out of cancer clinics a lot of patients are neutropenic and highly susceptible to contagions. A lot of times they are on their way to or from Chemotherapy. This shouldn't be allowed!” “why does the clinic not have them arrested for harassing and endangering their patients?” the third user asked.




There were many who felt terrified after seeing what happened with Burns. A person said, “My daughter begins her first chemo treatment for breast cancer in 30 minutes. I hope we don’t run into any idiots out there. She has already survived Covid and has Lupus. I will protect her as best I can and wish others would be more considerate.” “Sending love to your daughter and family- I’m sorry that you have to go through this… she has a group of cancer warriors cheering her on,” the second user wrote. “They are literally blocking the entrance to a CANCER TREATMENT CENTER. I'm so sorry this happened to you,” a tweet read.
