Kacy Catanzaro addresses the videos of her without a mask that have surfaced on social media.
Kacy Catanzaro recently was spotted eating at a restaurant prior to the Super Bowl. In this video, she and her friends were not wearing masks. This sparked backlash online as many people began to question why Catanzaro was not taking more precautions as the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on.
Taking to Twitter to respond to these concerns, Kacy Catanzaro stated that she is following the guidelines according to where she lives in Florida and that she is sure to remain masked as long as she's not sitting at her table and eating.
“I just wanted to get on here and be able to talk to everyone for a minute. I know that people are concerned that I was at a restaurant over the weekend. I want everyone to know that I hear you and I appreciate the concern. Here where I live in Florida restaurants are open to a certain capacity. You have to wear a mask when you go in, and when you leave, and really any time that we aren't sitting down at our table we have to have a mask but when we are sitting down to eat or drink we are allowed to take our masks off. I know that that's the part that people saw, that people were upset with. I'm sorry for anybody that is upset. I understand your concern and I want you to know that I do care about the safety of others around me and myself and I follow all of the protocol. Luckily for me with work, we get tested at least once a week, if not twice sometimes, and I carry my hand sanitizer with me everywhere. Everywhere that we have to, I wear my mask. I'm sorry that this moment made people think otherwise, but I just want you all to know that I hear you, I appreciate the concern, I am looking out for the safety of others around me as well as trying to take care of myself the best I can, and I wish the best for everybody else.”
Catanzaro is a member of the NXT roster and was recently a part of the inaugural women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
