A BEAUTY salon has been slammed for putting up a coronavirus-denying poster that told customers NOT to wear facemasks.
Skin Kerr Aesthetics, Hair and Beauty, in Bootle, Merseyside, caused uproar when it shared the notice on its Facebook page.
The A4 poster, which has since been deleted from Facebook, was stuck to the salon window with bullet points reading: “Covid Free Salon; no masks, we take cash; Covid talk is banned; you can't catch what doesn't exist.”
The bullet points ended with '#voodoovirusisbullsh**” and “#wedonotconsent” and states “please respect the rules of the salon”.
It comes as infections continue to rise in the region with 550 new cases recorded in seven days up to September 5.
The sky rocketing figures, double the previous weeks, are leading to concerns locals could be face with a lockdown.
Under government rules staff in hairdressers and beauticians have to wear plastic visors while serving customers.
Skin Kerr Aesthetic's post infuriated people online with the owners blasting their “irresponsible” attitude.
One man, who tagged Merseyside Police, wrote: “Can we do something about this irresponsible business owner – @skinkerr clinic please?
“Merseyside already hovering just below levels to have restrictions reimposed.”
One woman wrote: “Highly irresponsible, dangerous and clearly disrespectful to the community.”
Highly irresponsible, dangerous and clearly disrespectful to the community.
Another fumed: “Advertising anti-covid measures. Specifically telling people they aren't allowed to wear masks and calling the virus a hoax. Extremely irresponsible.”
One tweeter warned punters to “avoid” the salon, writing: “Getting your hair or nails done in Liverpool?
“Here's one to AVOID. Nice one guys! Doing a great job at flushing your biz down the toilet!”
A woman, who claimed she was the manager of Skin Kerr, told the Liverpool Echo she “did not wish to discuss” the post but claimed she had been threatened with violence.
Merseyside Police said: “Officers will be attending the salon today to speak to the staff and owner to make sure they are aware of their responsibilities.
“We will also be linking in with the local authority, Sefton Council.”
