Why this foolish idiot wearing a mask while washing her hands? Height of Chutiyapa! https://t.co/j30HxydaHE— Warrior Princess👸 मइलो मेघा (@MyloMegha) March 19, 2020
Healthy people should not wear mask. My kid is a doctor and they are facing shortage of masks. https://t.co/2CxaUBtgjS— Ruchi Singh (@RuchiWriter) March 19, 2020
What is wrong with her? Why is she flaunting her mask inside her washroom? Lets thank her for shutting off the tap but the mask is not needed if one is healthy and not in a crowded place. These #SafeHandsChallenge need to be done sensitively or just stop. https://t.co/4RwAEZ6CE8— Ashwini Kulkarni (@ashwiniz) March 19, 2020
You are wearing mask so that mirror does get infected… Right? https://t.co/6lMHgvSSeN— VIKRANT BANSAL 🇮🇳 (@vikrant_bansal) March 19, 2020
