Lana Del Rey Under Fire for Wearing THIS Face Mask at Meet and Greet

Lana Del Rey's face mask at an impromptu meet and greet is getting a lot of social media attention.

Saturday on Instagram, the “Summertime Sadness” singer surprised fans when she revealed that she was doing a signing of her book, “Violet Bent Backwards over the Grass,” that day at a Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles.

In her announcement video, the songstress wears a face mask that appears to be porous as she is surrounded by employees who all appear to be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment.

When interacting with fans, Rey continues to wear the mask — which may or may not have adequately protected herself and others from spread of the coronavirus.

After videos and pics of the gathering went viral, several social media users blasted Rey for her choice of facial wear.

“I love you sis but please wear a real mask, it’s gives a bad message :(” one Instagram user wrote.

“lana what is with the mask girl,” said a commenter.

“lana i’m begging you wear a real mask,” another added.

Despite the negative comments, The Independent reported that Rey's sister Caroline “Chuck” Grant told commenters that the singer “tested negative” for the virus and was standing “more than six feet away" from people – though social media pictures show otherwise.

Per Vanity Fair, supporters also claimed that Rey's mask featured a thin, invisible plastic lining which was not seen in photographs.

Rey wore a similar face mask on the September cover of Interview magazine.

Back in May, the musician was forced to return to her natural blonde hair color when state and local officials shut down hair salons amid the pandemic.

“When you have no choice but to go back to being a blonde because Kevin Tracey and Jacob are gone and there’s nothing but lemons left to cover your roots for nine weeks,” she wrote at the time.
