The Republican governor was at the University of South Florida to announce funding for cybersecurity education, WFLA reports.

“You do not have to wear those masks,” DeSantis told the students who were all wearing masks when he arrived.

“I mean, please take them off. Honestly, it’s not doing anything and we gotta stop with this COVID theater.”

He added, “If you want to wear it, it’s fine, but this is, this is ridiculous.”

The Hillsborough School District released a statement after the mask incident.

“We are excited our students from Middleton High School were highlighted as part of the statewide focus around cyber security education,” said Hillsborough Schools Superintendent Addison Davis. “Our Cyber Security pathway at MHS has had tremendous success through student’s earning industry certifications, participating in internships and leading the way in computer systems and information technology. As always, our students should be valued and celebrated. It is a student and parents’ choice to protect their health in a way they feel most appropriate. We are proud of the manner in which our students represented themselves and our school district.”
