Young boy repeatedly removes face mask, cries out in protest as two nursery workers continuously attempt to put mask over his face.
Disturbing footage showing a child crying as nursery workers try to force him to wear a mask is sparking outrage.
According to the child’s mother, Ann Walker, the incident took place at her son’s daycare center in New York.
“This is my poor kid at daycare today so I can work. #breaksmyheart #governorhochulthiswontwork #whyarewepunishingbabies,” Walker wrote on Facebook last week.
In the video, a young boy repeatedly removes a face mask and cries out in protest as two nursery workers continuously attempt to put the mask back on over his face.
The video, which also went viral on Twitter with over 5 million views in two days, also caught the attention of several Republican politicians and conservative commentators, who condemned the cruelty.
