Lana Del Rey angers fans as she wears a MESH face mask for a meet and greet

Lana Del Rey has angered fans after she wore a mesh face mask for a surprise meet and greet at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles on Friday.

The singer, 35, real name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, wore a silver sparkly fishnet face covering which had holes in it to sign copies of her new poetry book Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass.

Lana was in a special cordoned off area for the event where she read excerpts from her new tome, although she later appeared to take selfies with fans who shared the photographs to social media.

LA county has asked that everyone wears a cloth face covering when interacting with people out of their household in both public and private spaces.

During the global pandemic, Los Angeles alone has seen 273K confirmed cases and 6,626 deaths from Covid-19. California has had a total of 828K confirmed cases and 16,074 deaths.

Fans were left furious over Lana's choice of face covering with several calling it 'irresponsible' as she was a 'danger to herself and others'. 

Lana's sister, Caroline 'Chuck' Grant, was quick to hit back at furious social media users as she argued that the singer was 'more than six feet away' and 'tested negative' for the deadly virus before the event.
