While the nation is still reeling from the devastating effects of COVID-19, some Americans appear to be fed up with the mask mandate issued across the country. During an anti-mask protest in St. George, Utah, last month, a local ABC news affiliate in Salt Lake City interviewed various attendees at the rally.

The almost two-minute video highlighted city residents’ reactions, which ranged from angry to downright ignorant. But there was one protester's response that sparked outrage. 

St. George resident, Shauna Kinville, despicably compared the life-saving safety measure to the heinous killing of George Floyd, saying to the reporter, "George Floyd was saying, ‘I can’t breathe,’ and then he died."

"Now we’re wearing a mask and saying ‘I can’t breathe,’ but we’re being forced to wear them," she added.

As video footage of her outrageous claim began spreading on social media, Twitter users' opinions of Kinville ranged from humorous to some users going full Inspector Gadget on that a*s.

Another Twitter user pointed out how irrational her thinking was. 

And another Twitter user simply didn't have time to play with the woman, pulling receipts of Kinville's past arrest for assault.

Someone else highlighted the obvious reason for the side-eye Kinville earned in the Twitter streets.

But one Twitter user revealed that Kinville had changed her user name in an effort to mitigate further damage to her already "stellar" reputation.

Finally, one person eviscerated Kinville in less than 280 characters. 

On May 25, Floyd died from asphyxiation due to a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeling on his neck for almost eight minutes, Blavity previously reported. Video footage showed Floyd calling out for his mother in the final moments before he died.

Kinville's claim of not being able to breathe is a small part of a bigger problem that's brewing in the nation. 

According to the CDC COVID-19 dashboard, there have been over 6.5 million documented cases of people contracting the virus. Of those cases, a little over 194,000 people have succumbed to the highly-contagious virus. 

Nearly 23% of this nation's population refuses to wear a mask, according to a June report by the Advisory Board. Yet, as states take more drastic measures to protect Americans from the virus, that number will more than likely increase.
