A man entered a supermarket in Newport, Wales, wearing only his underwear and mask. The move came as a “protest” after the government established a national restriction that prohibits the sale of clothes in supermarkets for not considering them “essential items”.
Chris Noden, 38, was arrested by the store’s security team, a unit of multinational retailer Tesco. He was accompanied by his wife, Dawn, who filmed the scene in which the man climbs the escalators in the market for underwear only.
In the video, the woman supports her partner and “justifies” Chris’ scarce clothing: “store policy says clothes are not essential. Let him buy some clothes,” claims Dawn.
“That [a proibição de compra de roupas] it is beyond ridiculous. There are children growing up who need clothes “, completes the woman.
Tesco’s security guard replies, in turn, that Chris “is not dressed properly”. And he adds: “Go talk to the government. You can’t come in dressed like that.”
