The confrontation was filmed by journalist Emily Holshouser, who then shared it on Twitter. “One of the more intense moments was when a woman who said she’s a doctor shouted at the anti-maskers from behind a makeshift barricade. 'My mother is in the hospital with Covid,' she said. 'People die. That’s life. Your father’s not special,' an anti-masker replies,” Holshouser wrote on the social media site.

The clip also showed the woman yelling, “Arrest him, I’m a doctor!” as she continued, “You morons. People are dying.” One anti-masker called her “Nazi”, she replied, “I'm a doctor, you a**hole. I hope that you get it.” The protestors even went on to call the woman, “Someone needs therapy. You are a liar.” Police were then seen in the video separating the woman from the group. In addition to the confrontation clip, Holshouser shared other videos too on Twitter that showed anti-maskers getting into verbal as well as physical altercations in the mall.

One of the clips’ caption shared on the internet said, “A group of anti-maskers did maskless shopping today at a Ralph’s and the Westfield Century City Mall. They got into some verbal altercations w/ store employees and there were a couple of physical altercations as well. Here, they tried to push open the doors of a Steve Madden.” Another clip’s message was, “They went to several other stores but many stores closed their doors to prevent them from entering. They lined up at this store’s doors and one of the anti-maskers called the employee standing inside a 'big dumb White c*nt'.”

After Holshouser’s videos went viral, several people reacted to them. One person said, “it's so similar to the storyline of a walking dead episode. people have to barricade themselves indoors against these marauding anti-mask zombies. There has to be a law against this willful and aggressive endangerment of lives”. Another one commented, “these people tend to be a nightmare at stores even when there's not a pandemic going on. I mean, case in point: They're going out of their way to break rules and intimidate strangers, just so that salespeople will be forced to interact with them.”

“They have no bags. They didn’t shop.  Didn’t spend money. They lamented the mall not being busy when half of them look like they’ve not been to a mall b4. They didn’t stimulate commerce. They spread germs & caused a ruckus so they could film it for the nobodies that follow them,” the third user added.
