OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A former DJ’S Dugout employee was fired after posting a video of governor Pete Ricketts in the restaurant without a mask.

In the video, which has now been viewed over 31,000 times, Ricketts can be seen in a group of people, many of whom do not have a mask on.

DJ’s Dugout said she was fired for breaking the company’s social media policy.

Karina Montanez says she understands it was wrong but says she thinks Ricketts has been handling COVID-19 poorly.
