NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Shoppers at a Staten Island ShopRite lashed out a fellow shopper who wasn't wearing a mask earlier this month, shouting at her, "Get the f*** out of here," in an incident caught on camera which surfaced over the weekend. 

In the 22-second video clip, the woman is seeing arguing with shoppers, but she then walks away with her shopping cart. But the other shoppers don't let her get away with it, and start shouting at her. The unmasked woman eventually gives in and leaves the supermarket.

ShopRite spokesman Daniel Emmer said the incident took place more than two weeks ago and that store management reported it to local officials.

"We have found that the overwhelming majority of our customers follow CDC guidelines and executive orders to wear face coverings in our stores as a way to protect themselves and others," he said. "There are, however, exceptions to wearing a face covering for health reasons, including conditions that may not be readily apparent to others.”
