(The Sun) – This is the shocking moment a shopper whipped off her thong in the middle of a supermarket and donned it as a face covering after being refused service.

The viral clip shows the female customer removes her undies to put on her face after being warned she would not be served without a Covid mask on. The bizarre incident was caught on camera at a Pick n Pay supermarket in South Africa and has since caused quite a stir online.

The shopper was asked to put on a face-covering by a security guard but claimed she did not have one. After threatening to remove her from the store, the footage shows the woman then reach under her dress and whip off her thong to use as a makeshift mask.


Another female shopper, reportedly the same woman who went viral earlier in the week for telling supermarket staff to remove their face masks, appeared to congratulate her, saying “well done”. The clip has sparked outrage online with many blasting the woman for entering the shop without a face mask on.

One Facebook user said: “Stay at home and do online shopping if you don’t like the idea of wearing a mask.” Another commented: “This makes me sick. She is aware of the law worldwide. “We have a serious virus and (she thinks) a G-string will save her. Come on grow up. What must your family think?” READ MORE
