Talking on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast about how some cities in California, such as Beverly Hills, have instituted fines ranging up to hundreds of dollars for mask non-compliance, the Grammy-nominated musician said he was baffled the safety measure had become mandatory.
“It’s like me in school having to tuck in my shirt or else you get detention,” Malone noted. “It’s weird to be forced to wear something.”
Rogan pointed out wearing a mask does make an impact halting the virus from spreading.
Malone responded, “At the end of the day, it all comes down to respect for other people. It’s not a government thing. You shouldn’t be forced to wear a mask — but you should. And that’s because I respect you as a follow human.”
In May, Malone’s lifestyle brand, Shaboink, reportedly partnered with the humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief to donate 40,000 N95 masks to front-line medical workers combating the pandemic.
