A woman out shopping in the United States was caught on video with a hole cut in the middle of her face mask, as she claimed it made it “easier to breathe”.

The video of the woman out and about was shot in Lexington, Kentucky.

A petrol station clerk at S J Food Mart filmed his encounter with the woman, who is seen on video entering the shop with a torn mask, and was stunned by the stupefying scene.

The personnel asked the woman when she approached the counter to pay: "Where did you get that mask from?”

She replied: “Well, since we have to wear them and it makes it hard to breathe, this makes it a lot easier to breathe.”

“Cutting it?" the clerk replies. "Yeah, I’ll do that too, thanks for the advice.”

The woman then left the store.

The video, which the uploader titled, “Karen Mask,” has already received more than 800,000 likes and nearly 9,000 comments on TikTok.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that masks should cover the mouth and nose completely.

Kentucky has at least 5,130 Covid-19 cases, after rising by 253 over the weekend.
