“She said ‘Have you lost your mask’ or ‘where’s your mask at’ so I responded ‘Well my mask is in the car and she shouldn’t worry about my mask,'” Hale said.
“Mask or not, somebody shouldn’t be allowed to take it into their own hands to police me about what I’m doing, especially if the business owner or the business establishment doesn’t have an issue with it,” said Hale.

Hale further explained that he did not feel initially supported by the pizza parlor.
