A video of a customer calling a Costco employee a “p**sy little b**ch” for asking him to wear a mask has gone viral.
The video, which has been viewed over six million times so far on Twitter, starts in the middle of the dispute with the customer flexing about how popular he is on Instagram.
“I just put you on my 3,000 follower Instragam feed,” the customer says, implying that “Tison,” the employee, should feel embarrassed to be enforcing a health and safety rule in front of so many people.
But Tison was not bothered by the camera. In fact, it was his time to shine.
“Hi everyone!” he says, waving at the customer’s alleged 3,000 Instagram followers. “I work for Costco and I’m asking this member to put on a mask because that is our company policy. So you either wear the mask, or….”
“And I’m not doing it because I woke up in a free country,” the customer interrupts.
The sassy Costco worker isn’t about to let what should have been a simple reminder to wear a mask turn into a debate about freedom.
Tison just drags the customer’s shopping cart away. “You are no longer welcome here. You need to leave.”
That’s when the customer calls the employee a “p**sy little b**ch” and claims he’s “not a f**king sheep.”

Twitter loved Tison for standing up to the bully.

A lot of the tweets used the hashtag #WeLoveTison.
Solidarity from Tacoma WA! The maskless MAGAt 'patriot' should recognize that @Costco is a privately held company & has every right to say who is allowed to be there. If yr gonna be a capitalist, that's how it works. #WeLoveTison & #CostcoStrong pic.twitter.com/RS4BU5UzfT

Oh My god, I loved how the staffer responded to the camera once he knew it's gonna be "3000 instagram followers" (I wonder who these are)
He went total "Hey everyone, welcome to costco, tonight's episode on our show – 'how not to shop at costco'"

NO FU*KING SERVICE!!!
It's really not that hard to understand. You are on their private property, so their rules apply.

You can wear a mask or you can wear a body bag. COVID-19 doesn’t care.

I love how he did nothing and then called the Costco employee the p-word.
And he filmed it himself, and now he is getting crushed on Twitter. pic.twitter.com/83nUPWeMdc
