Busta Rhymes has become the new celebrity in the line of many others to speak out against masks and anti-Covid protocols. Many celebrities have spoken on the importance of getting vaccinated and keeping face masks on. However, few celebs such as Rob Schneider have completely spoken against such preventive measures.

Rhymes has gone viral on social media after a video of him ranting against Covid safety protocols and face masks surfaced online. His rant was more on the paranoid side. Rhymes stated that the government is making an attempt to “take our civil liberties away.

In the last sixteen fucking months, COVID could suck a dick. All these little weird ass government policies and mandates, suck a dick. They’re trying to take our civil liberties away. It feels good to be back outside, we outside for real!

The rapper ranted despite it being well established that Covid-19 took the lives of more than 4 million people. Many of his peers lost their lives and loved ones to Covid as well, but Rhymes doesn’t seem to consider it.

It’s called a God-given right for freedom, right? No human being is supposed to tell you you can’t even breathe freely. Fuck your mask! Some of y’all might feel differently but fuck your mask! You can’t eat food with a fucking mask on. You can’t even see each other smile with a mask on. I come from a time, way before, I used to wanna holla at a chick, I used to have to do shit with my face to let her know that I’m into her. All of that energy gets blocked when your mask is on. Energy is important and we are all conductors of good energy.

Busta Rhymes has tried to spread misinformation about Covid-19 before. He’s been criticized for spreading similar ideas before too, and it seems like this is not the last time either.
