The footage, captured by the mom, was initially posted on Reddit and quickly spread to other platforms.

The mom, who uses the goes by the name Jessabird on Reddit, said she was simply shopping when Hoskovec approached her and asked why she was wearing a mask.

Hoskovec then went on about how she was born and raised in Nebraska and that it’s too bad that some Nebraskans have turned into sheep.

The video clearly shows Hoskovec walking up to the mom and purposely coughing on her and her daughter time and time again, smiling and saying things like, “Excuse me, I’m coming through.”

Recently, a woman from Nebraska went viral for all the wrong reasons

She was captured deliberately coughing on a mother and her child inside a grocery store

“So my kid and I were at the store tonight to pick up a few groceries when this lady approached us and said politely, ‘Excuse me,’ and to be honest I thought she was going to ask me for help or ask where something was,” Jessabird said after the incident. “I was about to say ‘I don’t work here, lady,’ when she asked why we were wearing masks. That’s when I realized that she wasn’t wearing one herself. I started walking away, while replying, ‘Because of the Delta variant, and also because there’s a mandate.’”

That’s right! As of August 24th, the city of Lincoln, which is where the whole ordeal took place, renewed a mask mandate for anyone over the age of two, regardless of vaccination status, requiring them to wear a mask indoors.

“She asked if I’ve had a vaccine and said that my kid and I don’t need to wear masks because we look young and healthy,” Jessabird continued. “There were several other people around wearing masks but for some reason, she chose to pick on me and my kid.”

And she got into a lot of trouble

At the end of this video, a guy working at the store tried to intervene and told Jessabird and everyone to just go their separate ways. “Karen walked away and I told the guy what happened,” Jessabird recalled. “He said it wasn’t the first time he’s had to deal with people like her at work.”

“I then tried to continue my shopping but this lady followed me around the store. I told her she needs to keep her distance and that her coughing on me was assault. She laughed and kept saying ‘Look at you, it’s so cute how scared you are!’ By this time I was absolutely livid, trying my best to hold it together in front of my kid. I didn’t finish my shopping, instead, I went to the self-checkout to pay for my stuff. [Then], she followed me to use the self-checkout right next to mine. I informed the employee manning the checkouts that this woman had assaulted me in the store by coughing deliberately on me, but I didn’t wait around to see what the employee would say in response. I just really wanted to get us the heck out of there.”
