A group of anti-mask activists used megaphones to scream at high school students as they were leaving school grounds.
Local news station Fox 11 aired footage from the Huntington Beach school showing a group of adults calling the children “communists,” “zombies” and “sheep” for wearing their masks on school property as mandated by the school.
One anti-mask protester was even caught on video assaulting a student by pulling his mask off — and the student reportedly responded by punching the protester.
“You don’t take it to the students, first of all, because we’re all just trying to get back. We’re just trying to get good grades and get out of here,” said student Ian Boudreau.
Angie Nguyen called it a “joke” and said that what anti-maskers are standing for is “really stupid.”
She noted that “everyone is making fun of them.”
Cameron Coyne called the protest “ridiculous” because “we’re just high schoolers… we just don’t really have the energy to deal with these people.”
These creeps were also outside HBHS, yelling at kids about wearing masks and making sheep noises. pic.twitter.com/Tqm6cYZlS6
