Slipknot star Corey Taylor is stunned by the masses still refusing to wear face coverings amid the ongoing Covid crisis.
The rocker, who makes his living wearing a mask onstage and in Slipknot videos, is upset with people who think wearing protection over their noses and mouths is a "political statement" and thinks perhaps they should experience the deadly virus for themselves.
"I almost want anti-maskers to catch it, just to prove a point," Taylor told comedian Dean Delray on his "Let There Be Talk" podcast.
"There are still a bunch of f**king mooks with no masks on at the casinos (in adopted Las Vegas), and, actually, the people who were there, tourists or visitors or whatever, were giving s**t to people who were wearing masks. That was enough for me to just go, 'You know what, man? F**k you!' "
"It's like, not everything has to be a political f**king statement. It's better to just be cautious. It's better to be smart. You wanna walk around with no f**king mask on, you go ahead and spin the barrel, and let's see how many times you can click it… This is about f**king keeping people safe, not just you you d**kless wonder. What the f**k is wrong with you?"
His comments come a day after former Oasis star Noel Gallagher revealed he was refusing to wear a mask in public, telling "The Matt Morgan Podcast", "There's too many f**king liberties being taken away. I don't give a f**k. I choose not to wear one and if I get the virus it's on me, it's not on anyone else."
He added, "The whole thing's b**locks. You're supposed to wear them in (high end department store) Selfridges, yet you can f**king go down the pub and be surrounded by every f**king c**t. Do you know what I mean? It's like, 'Oh actually, we don't have the virus in pubs but we have it in Selfridges?' "
