Artist wears bikini made of masks outside Trader Joe’s to protest lockdown
A performance artist wore a bikini made out of blue surgical masks near a Trader Joe’s in Los Angeles to protest lockdown restrictions.
The half-naked artist, DaVida Sal, was not covering her mouth but repurposed one mask as a blindfold, taking a jab at the perceived “blindness” of those complying with social distancing measures.
Sal wrote in a Facebook post that she subscribes to a theory that coronavirus is a hoax created to erode freedoms by forcing people to wear masks in public and maintain a six-foot distance from each other.
The reaction to her latest stunt has been overwhelmingly negative.
“People where I live are dying, Karen. Protecting the most vulnerable people in our population is the right thing to do. Wearing a mask is not difficult,” wrote Amanda K. Reotar.

Maureen Linde wrote, “As a healthcare worker whom is rationed one mask until it falls apart. I’m pissed off you wasted so many for your ‘statement.’”
