Celebrities attending last night’s Grammy awards have been blasted for ignoring the very same face mask rules that many of them endorse.
Despite Los Angeles still being under a mask mandate, attendees removed their masks to take red carpet pictures with each other.
Every time an artist was given an award, they also got up on stage without masks before hugging and kissing others.
“There’s a mask mandate in Los Angeles where violations can carry a $1,000 fine or 6 months in jail but apparently COVID isn’t a concern if you’re a celebrity at the #Grammys,” tweeted Robby Starbuck. “Celeb parties are no big deal but have a family party in LA and the mayor can turn off your power.”

The behavior of the celebrities made a mockery of the socially distanced tables that were set out for the event.
As ever, it’s one rule for them and another for you.
Respondents questioned why they bothered wearing masks at all, with one remarking, “Mostly because it’s a performative precaution.”
I'm confused. #Beyonce is wearing a mask at the table but then she doesn't wear a mask when she gives her speech. What is the point of wearing a mask if they're going to take it off when they're giving a speech standing next to other people? #GRAMMYs https://t.co/GnYOdO6V2B

So they wear a mask while sitting down at the Grammys and then remove it when they stand so they can go up to accept their award and while they stand and remove their masks they then hug people.😷
Where's the logic in this. 🤔

Did you see anyone at #GRAMMYs wear mask? Aren't these people the ones who preach this?
