This newspaper letter went wildly viral and it’s the perfect response to covidiots

Latest in an occasional series, newspaper letter of the day goes to this, shared on Twitter by @WalterLapp who said: ‘An excellent letter to the editor of a newspaper.’

And it went viral because it’s the perfect response to covidiots everywhere.

Here it is in full.

And just in case that’s tricky to read …

Citizenship carries both rights and responsibilities.

Wear a mask.

And here are a few of the things people said in response.
