Tazmin Outhwaite, 50, was shouted at by a stranger for wearing a facemask in a taxi. The actress spoke out in view of her 245,000 Twitter followers about the ordeal today.
‘What you wearing your mask for you f***ing stupid idiot’.
She said: “A very angry woman shouted out her window at me, while I was wearing my mask in a black cab…
“’What you wearing your mask for you f***ing stupid idiot’.
“Not sure why she was so angry.”
Fans leapt to the comments to discuss what had happened.
One said: “I still wear my facemask everywhere and I get the same thing.
“Funny looks, people laughing at me and also people calling me stupid for wearing one.
“I’d personally rather be safe than sorry.
“Covid is still around and I don’t want to take the risk.”
Another said: “The pandemic has made me very aware of the number of selfish, nasty rude people around.
“Sad old state of affairs.”
Tamzin told her followers about her ordeal, in a reply to Fiona Dolman, who plays Sarah Barnaby in Midsomer Murders.
She wrote: “Got stopped while shopping.
“Take your mask off you stupid TV c***.”
The 51-year-old then quipped: “But, you know, she recognised me though so that’s nice.”
A fan responded: “I’m sorry that person was so disrespectful to you and couldn’t mind their own business.
“The virus is deadly!!
“It’s your right to wear a mask.
“This year I’ve lost my mom & young man who was like a son to me.
“I wear my mask to protect myself and others.”(sic)
As it stands at the moment, face coverings are no longer legally required in England, but the government guidance says it “expects and recommends” the continued wearing of masks in crowded areas such as public transport.
