Kirk Cousins On Not Wearing A Mask: ‘If I Die, I Die’
During a recent interview, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins got open and honest about where he stands on the coronavirus pandemic and wearing masks.
Per the New York Post, Kirk was asked, “If 1 is the person who says, ‘Masks are stupid, you’re all a bunch of lemmings’ and 10 is, ‘I’m not leaving my master bathroom for the next 10 years,’ where do you land?” He replied, after chuckling, “I’m not gonna call anybody stupid, for the trouble it would get me in. But I’m about a .000001.”
Cousins then said, “I want to respect what other people’s concerns are. For me personally, just talking no one else can get the virus, what is your concern if you could get it, I would say I’m gonna go about my daily life. If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out. I’m gonna let nature do its course. Survival-of-the-fittest kind of approach.”
He added, “And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.”
He lastly stated, “So that’s really where I fall on it, so my opinion on wearing a mask is really about being respectful to other people. It really has nothing to do with my own personal thoughts.”
The Minnesota Vikings are set to begin their season September 13 against the Green Bay Packers.
