Ronit Roy's mask making video goes viral in US amid protests over George Floyd’s death
Ronit Roy's DIY mask-making video went viral in the US amid protests. “No mask? Tension nahin leneka! Simple hai!” Ronit Roy had tweeted.
Masks have become a way of life for everyone around the globe as we struggle against the COVID-19 pandemic. With regards to availability and affordability, actor Ronit Roy had shared a simple Do-It-Yourself (DIY) method to make a mask from a T-shirt.
The video had gone viral at that time, and the actor was hailed for a clear and easy explanation. However, Ronit’s video has gone viral once again -- this time it was in the United States.
As protests against George Floyd’s death continue to rage across the United States, a video of Indian actor Ronit Roy demonstrating how to make a balaclava mask out of a T-shirt is being widely circulated on social media for the benefit of protestors.
Roy’s mask video was originally posted by the actor on Instagram as an alternative to a face mask to protect oneself against the novel coronavirus.
The video was then posted by a US resident on Twitter where it became popular among people protesting racism and police brutality.
The US is currently in the grip of intense protests over the death of George Floyd, an African American citizen, at the hands of Derek Chauvin, a white police officer in Minneapolis. Chauvin was videotaped kneeling on Floyd’s neck during an arrest, an action that led to his death.
