SAN FRANCISCO Mayor London Breed lashed out at critics after being videotaped dancing in a local club without a required facemask.
“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” Breed said, trying to dismiss the accusations she shirked city rules.

“I think this is sad that this is even a story,” she told KPIX.
The video circulated on social media showed Mayor Breed enjoying a rare live show by the Oakland-based R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné! at the Black Cat Club in San Francisco Thursday evening.
The mayor can be seen singing along to the words of the band’s hit track Let’s Get Down.
‘FEELING THE SPIRIT’
Breed claims she was sipping a drink and merely lost track of the mask as she was enjoying the music.
“My drink was sitting at the table,” said Breed.
“I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.”
She told the San Francisco Chronicle that she was accompanied by Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza and singer Raphael Saadiq.
The mayor also pointed out that she’s routinely tested for Covid-19 and “at the end of the day, everyone who comes in here has to show proof of vaccination.”
“That gives me a lot of reassurance.”
San Francisco’s mask mandate which was renewed on Sept. 10 clearly reads: “Everyone, including people who are fully vaccinated, must wear a well-fitted mask in indoor public settings at all times.”
It adds: “People may remove their well-fitted mask while actively eating or drinking.”
Last November, Breed took heat for fleeing her home during Covid-19 surge to dine at the French Laundry one day after Gov. Gavin Newsom was caught doing the same.
‘SCIENCE OR POWER?”
The mayor’s maskless night out on the town has caused resounding dismay on social media.
“Do as i say not as I do” classic tyrannical behavior [sic],” Joshua New tweeted.
“Fun police,” asked Sue Long.
“You mock the rules the rest of Californians follow. We are trying to END the pandemic not come up with feeble excuses for bad behaviors. Fess up! You were wrong (again).”
Teens in the bay area aren’t allowed to take off their masks at school- have to go outside to eat,” posted Brigid Dempsey.
“Science or power?”

Mike Vignes was doubtful all the fuss about the lack of facemasks won’t matter.
“The better question is why does this still shock you,” he tweeted.
“Classic political elitist behavior.
“And guess what there are never repercussions for any of them so it won’t change.”
