California Gov. Gavin Newsome and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti are being criticized for not wearing masks while attending the NFC Championship Game between the Rams and 49ers Sunday.
A picture posted on Magic Johnson’s Instagram shows the two Democrats posing maskless for photos with the basketball legend. Another picture included San Francisco Mayor London Breed — another Democrat politician who was photographed not wearing a mask.
California state Sen. Melissa Melendez, a Republican, didn’t hold back on Twitter, calling out the politicians for failing to follow the strict mask mandates they enforce on citizens.
The L.A. Rams’ policies require that all fans be vaccinated or show proof of a negative test and wear masks at all times when attending games at SoFi Stadium.
Los Angeles County also mandates masks at “Mega Events” (sporting events, concerts, etc.) with more than 5,000 people.
