There’s been a lot of discussion around COVID-19 vaccination and mask mandates recently, but one of the most poignant comments to date came from Minnesota Twins’ TV announcer (on Fox Sports North) Dick Bremer Thursday in response to a troll who criticized him for wearing a mask on air. Bremer has called Twins’ TV games since 1983, and he was not having it with a recently-created troll account that went after him for wearing a mask on-air. Here’s his response:
I'll take my mask off when everyone who wants a vaccine gets one. Then, I'll be able to look into the eyes of the thousands who've lost loved ones and tell them I did everything I could. Go Twins! https://t.co/UOyOPFrq5O

That troll with his eight-number Twitter username (and his “joined Twitter in December 2020” status) later deleted his initial tweet to Bremer, but it can be seen here:
Good for Bremer for standing up to a troll here.
