Take a look at some of the reactions here: — adultman (@adultman91) July 27, 2021
From the facemasks worn by Hannibal Lecter, a fictional serial killer, to those of superhero villain Bane, the face-covering was compared to many bizarre yet hilarious items. The mask design resembled that of a traditional KN95, with an oval shape and diamond prints on them. While the mask design impressed many, recognising the space it provides around one’s nose and mouth, it did not sit well with others.

I’m undecided on the giant face masks #TeamUSA are wearing. On the one hand, they’re wearing them. On the other hand, they look like Shredder from the ninja turtles. #Olympics — Dr. Annette McCarthy (@RsterAM) July 27, 2021 But seriously where can I get one of these? The space they must provide around your nose and mouth is incredible. If we go back to mask mandates this is a necessity. https://t.co/ZEJNLOTt4e via @TodayShow
