‘Entitled’ anti-vax influencer who lost thousands of followers for supporting anti-lockdown protests is slammed for not wearing a mask while shopping on the Gold Coast
Szepanowski, 22, and her boyfriend Mitchell Orval documented their visit to a shopping centre in a YouTube video on Sunday, but neither of them was wearing a mandatory face mask.
The couple, who are known to oppose vaccines and Covid lockdowns, are not believed to be medically exempt from wearing a mask during the pandemic.
Szepanowski’s own social media followers strongly criticised her in the comments section, with one saying: ‘If I can wear a mask for a nine-hour shift… you can wear one around Kmart. Not that hard.’

‘Yikes guys… the self entitlement is gross,’ another commented.
‘You can’t even do a simple thing like wear a mask in a public place, endangering the lives of others. Do you think you’re better and above everyone else that you are exempt from wearing a mask? Absolutely disgusting behaviour from people who are supposed to be “influencers”,’ a third wrote.
‘It is absolutely disgusting that you think it is ok to use a platform like this to literally engender and risk other people’s lives,’ a fourth wrote.
Queenslanders are required to wear face masks if they cannot socially distance.

It comes after Szepanowski laughed in the faces of former fans who were concerned about the impact her anti-Covid views might have on impressionable fans in a new video telling haters to simply ‘ignore’ her content.
The Instagram star has lost more than 20,000 followers since outing herself as a Covid denier who does not believe vaccines are needed.
Given her income is based almost solely on her work online, followers were stunned to learn that she seemingly is at peace with her opinions resulting in her losing fans.
She shared a ‘snarky’ video on Saturday skipping outside her Gold Coast mansion with a caption that read: ‘How to continue on with your day even if you don’t agree with something’.
Not impressed: A legions of Chloe’s loyal fans have slammed her, with one saying: ‘If I can wear a mask for a nine hour shift… you can wear one around Kmart. Not that hard’
The video offended legions of her formerly loyal fans, who claim it is the ‘final nail in the coffin’ and insulting to those who are genuinely concerned about public health.
Some fans have gone so far as to suggest she’ll be ‘permanently cancelled’, while others said they will burn any merchandise they own of hers in a bonfire.
‘The whole of Australia is over them at the moment… I’ve never unfollowed someone so fast’, one former fan said.
‘They’re bleeding followers at this point.’
Others vowed to boycott the mother of one’s activewear label and were disappointed when they realised there are no refunds available on any sale items.
