A viral clip has been making the rounds on TikTok which shows the awkward moment an anti-masker tries to rip a mask in half and fails miserably.

The short clip posted by @meidastouch) read: “This anti-masker tried to tear a mask in half at an anti-masker rally.”

While the political stance of the man and attendees is unclear, the unidentified man is filmed on stage holding a mask in front of a supportive cheering crowd.

In a desperate attempt to tear the mask, he becomes increasingly forceful but still fails. One TikTok user jokes that he “definitely popped a blood vessel”, while another pokes fun that he was about to “rip his pants, let alone the mask.”

Can’t stop watching 😂 #mask #getvaccinated #lol #wtf #meidastouch

Despite his immense efforts, the mask was undefeatable and won.

Fellow TikTokers flocked to the video in hysterics, with one questioning why he didn’t have a rehearsal before the rally: “Why wouldn’t he just try that at home, to make sure?”

Another raised the valid point of what anti-maskers gain from such a thing, “Why do they put so much energy into this? It’s ridiculous. Just put the mask on. They make such a big deal out of nothing.”

One made a correlation between those in attendance and Trump supporters, suggesting that the video epitomises fans of the former president, “Trumpies in a nutshell. All muscle, no brains.”

“The mask was like ‘you can’t fight the truth Kevin’”, another joked.
