Screen icon Bill Murray says he’s wearing a mask when he goes out, but most of the younger people he sees aren’t.
“Most young people do not wear masks at all,” he told Jimmy Kimmel during a remote appearance from his bathtub in South Carolina. “They don’t.”
Murray said some arguments simply don’t work, even in the middle of a deadly coronavirus pandemic.
“You could argue, ‘Oh you’re being socially irresponsible, you’re risking your life and the lives of others,’” he said. “Eh, maybe. Who cares?”
Then he offered up a better line of logic.
“You’re missing a real opportunity to say, ‘I’m on the side of law and order,’” he said. “If I weren’t on the side of law and order, wouldn’t I have walked in with my guns drawn?”
