Waitress Fired After Trying to Shame Maskless Nebraska Governor

The server who recorded the now-viral video of GOP Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts posing for a photo while not wearing a mask at a public restaurant has been fired.

The video, recorded and shared on social media by 25-year-old single parent Karina Montanez, went viral this week, as it shows Ricketts dining with a group of maskless patrons on Election Day. The footage has fostered a feeding frenzy for those angry with Ricketts’ refusal to issue a mask mandate in the state he governs as COVID-19 cases and deaths in the state are surging alongside the rest of the country. 

Social media users shamed the governor for refusing to impose a statewide mask mandate as Nebraska is seeing a major surge in COVID-19 cases.
