Protesters in MAGA t-shirts and hats march maskless through Target shouting ...

Florida protesters sporting MAGA t-shirts and hats defied COVID safety rules and marched maskless through a Target store shouting 'take off your mask!' during a demonstration this week. 

Footage shared online shows a small group of anti-maskers marching through the aisles of the store on North Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale shouting 'take it off' at other customers and cheering when people apparently complied.  

The incident took place in hard-hit Florida where confirmed cases of the deadly virus have now topped 671,000 and the death toll is edging closer to 13,000.   

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has not issued a statewide mask mandate for public places but several businesses - including Target - have nationwide rules requiring customers and staff to sport face coverings inside their buildings.

Some protesters were seen wearing merchandise including 'Make America Great Again' t-shirts and hats while one wore a t-shirt featuring a photo of Barack Obama sporting a hat. 

One man in a top - a reference to 's refusal to wear a mask for much of the pandemic before sensationally backtracking in July - held aloft a speaker blasting the tune 'We're Not Gonna Take It' by Twisted Sister.

The group shouted 'take it off' and 'take your mask off' at customers shopping in the store. 

One protester Cristina Gomez, who hit headlines in June when she claimed people wearing masks were 'obeying the devil's laws', posted the incident live on her social media account.

'If an infant doesn't wear a mask, then no one should wear a mask,' she said in her livestream.

'People looking at us like, 'What's going on?' Isn't it crazy how people now look at me like we crazy because we don't have a mask on? I think y'all crazy for having a mask.' 

Her footage also showed the man in the MAGA top standing on the trailer of a vehicle outside the store prior to the protest shouting about being 'sick and tired of having to wear one of these things'.
