Before you start calling people out for not wearing face coverings, it might be a good idea to have everyone in your party fall in line.

That's what happened recently when MSNBC TV reporter, Cal Perry, was in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin talking about the majority of people out and about without a face mask.

During the report, Perry directed the cameraman toward a passerby and mentioned:

As you can see, no one is wearing them, nobody is...

The quick-thinking guy interrupted Perry, pointed out a small issue with his reporting and finished his sentence saying:

...including the cameraman.

Perry echoed the man's sentence, said "OK," and threw up his hands in a "welp, we're done here" motion. If you've ever seen someone die just a little bit inside, it was at that exact moment.

Luckily, the live shot was wrapped up before it could get any uglier.

The guy who was confronted for not wearing a mask was filming the whole thing too, and it ended up on Reddit.

Half of Perry's MSNBC crew weren't wearing face masks. That's not a good look when you're being critical of others for not doing their best to prevent COVID from spreading.
