The reckless moment a man films himself LICKING toiletries in a Missouri grocery amid the coronavirus crisis – as Piers Morgan calls for him to be locked up and denied healthcare.
A Missouri man has been filmed licking bottles on a grocery store shelf amid the coronavirus crisis gripping the country.
The revolting clip, believed to have been filmed in Missouri, saw the man saying, ‘who’s scared of coronavirus?’, before running his tongue along the shelf.
In the short clip posted online, he can be seen bending down to lick the toiletry items on the shelf while looking at the camera.
Alongside the footage, the caption states: ‘I’m a nasty motherf****r’.
The unnamed man is now facing calls for his arrest after the footage was repeatedly shared on Twitter.
UK morning TV presenter, Piers Morgan, called for him to be locked up and denied healthcare if he contracts coronavirus.
The Good Morning Britain host slammed the ‘moron’ this morning and said a jail sentence might help ‘concentrate his mind’.
Speaking on ITV today, Morgan said: ‘You know what I’d like to happen to him? I’d like him found, and I’m sure they’ll get him, put in prison immediately and then I’d like him deprived of any health care should be then get the virus having deliberately tried to give it, potentially, to lots of other people.
‘That might concentrate the minds of these morons. And it might concentrate the minds of these morons here too.’
In the US spring breakers have been criticized for still flocking to South Beach and other Miami hotspots despite warnings to avoid mass gatherings.
During the show, Morgan also directed anger at the public’s ‘idiocy’ for treating yesterday like a public holiday, where thousands were seen flocking to beaches or enjoying National Trust parks.
He shared a picture entitled ‘memo to all morons’ yesterday as he called on people to obey social distancing measures.
The image reads: ‘Confused about how far to distance yourself? Imagine the outline of a dead relative between you.’
Boris Johnson warned yesterday that if people don’t desist from ‘non-essential travel’ and continue to disobey government guidance to stand at least 6.5ft (two metres) apart, he will be forced to impose a country-wide lockdown.
Several parks have closed since yesterday, following fears the virus could be transferred in crowds forming at the venues. The National Trust has also closed all its gated parks in response to the crowds seen yesterday.
The United Kingdom has reported more than 5,000 cases due to the virus, and 281 deaths. The United States has recorded more than 35,000 cases of coronavirus and 458 deaths.
