“Protect Yourself From Ebola Just Like Killa Cam”: Cam’Ron Selling Artfully Designed Surgical Masks
With the Ebola epidemic driving up fears around the globe, Harlem rapper, actor and Dipset member Cam’ron is taking the opportunity to create Ebola surgical masks. In an Instagram post, Cam’ron presented the surgical masks designed with his iconic throwback picture of him wearing a pink fur hat and talking on his pink flip phone. He captioned the photo:
“Ebola is no joking matter.. So if u have to be safe.. Be fashionable. #CamEbolaMask get’m at @dipsetusa1997 nx week, made by @chinagram http://www.dipsetUsa.com”
The product is probably not effective against Ebola since the CDC has not confirmed the virus is airborne, but still consumers can look as fashionable as Cam’ron. (If anyone can really look fashionable while wearing a surgical mask. Jury’s still out on that one.)
His site continues:
“Wrap it up and protect yourself from Ebola just like Killa Cam! PRE-ORDER – Ships 11/7/14. Provides complete protection while remaining light and comfortable. Polypropylene outer facing offers a soft, fluid protection barrier while the cellulose inner facing assures comfort and breathability. A full-width nosepiece guarantees proper fit. Latex-free ear loops.”
So far, over 3,000 people have died from the virus and over 8,000 people have been infected, so it really is no joking matter. But at the same time, it’s hospital workers who are on the front lines of the fight against the disease who are at the greatest risk. Everyone else needs to take it down a bit.
