(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last week, social media erupted in cries of hypocrisy after photos and video from the Met Gala in New York City showed the maskless rich and famous rubbing shoulders and posing for pictures while the staffers working the event were hidden behind masks.
Not to be outdone in the hypocrisy department, the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards that aired on Sunday once again showed not a mask in sight among the rich and famous while those working the event were hidden behind masks.
It’s almost as if the rich, powerful elite really don’t care if Americans can see just what enormous hypocrites they are.
While the regular folks in California are required to wear a mask and social distance whether or not they’ve been vaccinated, these Hollywood hypocrites were exempted from the rules.
While children as young as two are being forced to wear masks for hours on end, these celebrities act as if they’re not at all afraid of COVID.

As Jesse Kelly always says, the people telling you to be afraid of COVID aren’t afraid of COVID.
The backlash over the Haves versus Have Nots masking scandal grew to such intensity, the city of Los Angeles had to rush in and make excuses for the maskless Hollywood stars.
In a statement released to CNN, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said that the Emmy Awards broadcast – just like every film, television and music production – is exempt from the County’s stringent COVID mandates.
Yeah, that’ll certainly make the mom struggling to keep a mask on her two-year-old feel better.
The agency went on to explain that the exemption is totally okay because “additional safety modifications are made for these controlled interactions.” Namely, those attending the Emmy’s had to provide either proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test 48 hours prior to the event. According to the health department, the Emmy broadcast’s rules “exceeded the baseline requirements” for TV and film productions.
But if that’s the case, why were the little people required to wear masks?
Funny how they won’t explain that.
