Former Major League Baseball star Aubrey Huff has been very critical of lockdown measures implemented because of the COVID-19 outbreak, claiming he would “rather die of coronavirus than wear a mask and live in fear.”
The two-time World Series champion took to Twitter this week and stated he would no longer wear a mask inside any businesses, saying it was “unconstitutional to enforce.”
He even doubled down on Tuesday when he suggested that while the “liberal left” had criticized him and “guilt-shamed me for threatening the lives of millions of innocent people” most “well-adjusted, sane people” agreed with his stance.
“If you want to wear a mask and live in fear for the rest of your lives, that’s certainly your prerogative,” Huff said in a video he posted on his Twitter account.
“But the vast majority of well-adjusted, sane, common sense people that aren’t sheep and can reason for themselves agree with me.”
“I understand that coronavirus is real,” he continued. “If you have pre-existing conditions, or you’re an old person or—and this is going to sound insensitive, but someone has to say it—you’re morbidly obese, then stay the f**k home. Just because that is your plight in life, doesn’t mean the whole world has to shut down.”
“This is not a selfish thing for me, this is a thing to try and free America so they [Americans] can freely breathe,” he added.
“It’s not healthy to breathe in your own CO2 all the time and it seems like everyone is a coronavirus expert. If I God forbid get the coronavirus, here’s what I do: I go home, I get well and I get back and live my life. I would rather die from coronavirus than live the rest of my life in fear and wear a mask.”
