Well, evidently all the docile little sheep who do obey Costco's rules turned into wolves on social media, savaging Kevin with comments like these ones on a reposting of his video by Twitter user ONLY iN LVNV.

After the customer interrupts him to say "I'm not doing it". Tison thanked everyone for his support via his own Twitter account and added: "I was just trying to protect our employees and our members".

A Costco employee is being lauded online for his handling of an encounter with a customer who recorded himself berating the worker and refusing to wear a mask. The man eventually removed the clip from the platform after it was supposedly "downvoted into oblivion".

Like many stores, Costco implemented a policy due to the coronavirus pandemic that all members and guests must wear a face covering at all times while in the store.

As per the company's policy, staff and customers must wear face masks and practice social distancing while in store, but one shopper didn't agree with the rules, and filmed his run-in with the employee.

'Good on @Costco.they made the announcement weeks ago that every member will be required to wear a mask.this a--e went in there just to cause a scene!

Costco requires all employees and customers to wear a face covering while inside its retail locations. Businesses have the right to prevent people from spewing saliva droplets in their stores. "Because I woke up in a free country". "This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity".

What is clear is that mask policy does not apply to children under two years old or anyone unable to wear a mask because of a medical condition.

Check out this video the guy shot of someone who appears to be a Costco manager recently giving him the boot when he tried walking up to the registers without a face covering.

The customer asks the employee whether he is going to take his cart full of toilet paper, detergent and other items away.

"All we are asking is that shoppers take these easy safety steps - beginning with always wearing a mask - to help protect these essential grocery workers and make sure that grocery stores continue to be open and a safe place to shop for all of our families".

Correction 5/20/20 9:38 a.m. ET: This article was updated to say that the second incident occurred at Gelson's Markets, not Costco as originally stated.
