Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN)Villagers who refuse to wear masks are being forced to dig graves for victims of Covid-19 by local authorities in one part of rural Indonesia, in the hopes that a little bit of manual labor and empathy will convince others to do their part to help stop the pandemic.Three middle aged men and five minors in Cerme district of Gresik Regency, East Java, were given the unique punishment on September 9, authorities said. Though mask-wearing is mandatory in public throughout Indonesia, there has been a vocal segment of the population that has been reluctant to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Young Karens get called out in Ralphs market for not wearing masks
In a video causing a stir on Reddit, a woman at Ralph’s grocery store in Southern California filmed two arrogant anti-masking “Karens.”Hide
The video joins the anti-masking actions in progress. One of the young Karens poses for the camera phone as if it were a joke. However, a Ralph’s employee tells them that if they don’t don a mask, they will not check out.Hide
Later self-identified at the end of the video as Ashley Gibbs, the woman notes their privilege: “White people thinking they are better than everybody else.” The video has garnered more than 1,500 comments since being posted to Reddit’s “Public Freakout” forum this week.Ashley wants all the smoke, as she confronts 2 girls in Ralph’s grocery store. from PublicFreakout Hide
As he follows them around, she provides a warning: “If you have a grandma in the Glendale area, do not come to Ralph’s market, because these ladies think they can do whatever they want.”
“We have Ralph’s workers, working hard, going home to their families.”
The woman asks if she can not record her, a request Gibbs immediately dismisses. But then the woman turns to say: “You’re wearing a mask. If you’re wearing a mask, you should be perfectly fine.”Hide
“I don’t want you to kill a loved one,” replies Gibbs.
The woman, pulling the Herculean strength and vigor of all the anti-mask Karen ancestors, retorts: “I don’t want you to tell me what to do.”
However, Gibbs is about that action and remains undeterred in her quest of the public call-out, letting the woman know that Ralph’s employees don’t make much money.Hide Challenger
Then Gibbs digs in with more call-out bars: “You obviously haven’t had much hardship in your life. You just come here and think you can disrespect people. Take your money somewhere else and put your mask over your nose.”Hide
When they thought pulling out a phone and filming her was fair play, she identified herself directly and left them with a message: “And I’m letting you know, you need to put the mask over your fucking nose.”
By the end of her sentence, both women had their masks on in the appropriate fashion.Today’s top stories
