John McAfee Arrested For Wearing A Woman's Thong As A Facemask In Germany

John McAfee, former founder of McAfee Antivirus Software, was reportedly arrested in Germany for making an unwelcome fashion statement with his face cover when he wore a woman's thong - instead of a face mask - over his head. 

McAfee tweeted out on Monday that he had been detained because he wouldn't put on a medically certified mask instead of the thong. 

He wrote: "Visited Catalonia just before Europe banned Catalonians from travelling. Tried to return to Germany and were refused entrance. They demanded we wear masks. I put on my thong mask. They demanded I replace it. I refused. Tussle. Jail. Black eye. Released."

“Trivial issue but waiting for high level beaurocrats [sic] to arrive. Slow bastards, as you know," he wrote while the issue was unfolding. “My Coronavirus mask is the problem. I am insisting it is the safest available and I’m refusing to wear anything else — for my health’s sake. Authority!?!?!?!?” he  continued.

“Going to have to cancel the Red Scarf Society meeting. I am so sorry. Note to future adventurers: Always joke with you [sic] captors. No matter what,” he concluded.

Then, his wife said she would take over his account "until John escapes (usual method), bribes someone (very quick – might be out in a few hours), retains the right lawyer (will be a few days) or becomes warden of the jail, in which case we will have to force him out."

His wife, Janice, continued: “He was not arrested for wearing the thong as a mask. He was arrested for refusing to replace it with a ‘medically certified’ over the ear mask. I refused as well. But they chose to arrest John, and leave me be.”

She later left on a private jet back to Munich without John. 

“I’m following John’s instructions and heading back. He assured me he would be released,” she later said. In a Tweet later in the day McAfee said he was "back in Belarus" and commented:

“I cannot speak publicly about my fun and games yesterday, regrettably, but after a few hours sleep I will be back with my usual stream of conscious [sic],” he added.

Godspeed, John. Godspeed.
