Face Diaper (face mask)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in some requirements to wear face masks. The masks were sometimes called a “face diaper” in the United States.

“He can’t cover his mouth, it’s a mask, not a face diaper” was posted on Twitter by Uffe on March 18, 2020. “bc it likely looks like some sort of face diaper, which can’t mean anything good” was posted on Twitter by Mary Murphy on March 19, 2020. “Seen a company that went from making sports wear to face masks to help people avoid the Corona virus, but I thought they looked more like a face diaper than a face mask!” was posted on Twitter by Michael Auer on March 22, 2020.

“Face nappy” is a similar term that is used in the United Kingdom.

I made a mask today.
It is ugly AF.
Mr. Lomax calls it “a face diaper.”
Ornery enough not to care and wear the stupid thing anyway. Smiling face with horns

Diaper-wearing Trump will not wear a face diaper. He’s too macho. And he fooks models, in case you forgot.

Why I’m an adamant “Anti-Masker” \
1️⃣ Masks will not stop a virus that escaped a biosafety L4 lab
2️⃣ I kind of like oxygen
3️⃣ I don’t like wearing a bacteria infested face diaper
4️⃣ Masks are symbolic of submission
5️⃣ Masks are a bait and switch scheme to usher in vaccines
