Panic surrounding the Coronavirus disease 2019 is at an all-time high, with reports of hand sanitizer and other commodities selling out at stores worldwide — but some people have found an odd way to combat the illness.

With news of COVID-19 still developing, more and more public gatherings and events are being canceled as infection rates continue to rise in multiple countries and regions across the globe.

Considering the severity of the virus, citizens are taking all manner of measures to prevent getting infected, resulting in a major shortage of cleaning products and even face masks.

The 2019 Coronavirus has seen huge reaction from those hoping to avoid infection, with commodities like face masks and hand sanitizer selling out at stores worldwide.

However, one IRL streamer came upon two individuals who found a hilarious way to get around the face mask shortage during a live broadcast in Japan.

Osaka-based streamer “cjaysan” often shares his outings in the massive city, from morning walks to taking in the country’s bustling nightlife scene.

“Cjaysan” is a popular Osaka-based IRL Twitch streamer, who often broadcasts his excursions in Japan’s bustling nightlife scene.

It was during one of his daytime excursions that he came across two men, who appeared to be wearing brightly-colored and oddly shaped face masks.

“What is that?” Cjaysan asked as the man approached his camera.

“Panties,” the stranger answered bluntly.

Indeed, both he and a friend appeared to be wearing women’s underwear on their faces, which they claimed was an attempt at warding off infection from the Coronavirus.

In an even more hilarious turn of events, the stranger pulled the undergarments aside to take a drag from his cigarette, further suggesting that his makeshift panty-mask was likely just a gaff in response to panic surrounding the virus.

“I should get one, too,” the streamer laughed, after the duo confirmed that they hadn’t, in fact, borrowed the garments from their girlfriends, as was originally suspected.

According to the CDC, there is currently no known vaccine for Coronavirus 2019, and asks people use preventative measures to avoid contracting the illness.

While this surprise encounter marked a humorous take on the current situation, the Coronavirus is taking a serious toll on countries worldwide, with a slew of public events like SXSW, TwitchCon Amsterdam, and multiple competitive gaming events being canceled due to the outbreak.

For now, all people can do is take preventative measures to avoid potential infection — but it looks like our panty-wearing strangers have the situation “under control.”

Nessa Barrett has been accused of throwing Mads Lewis some shade after hiding comments from fans on Twitter suggesting the two collaborate, but the TikTok star has hit back and claimed nothing was shady about it at all.

Nessa Barrett and Mads Lewis were inseparable once upon a time. The two of them were an unstoppable force, with millions of fans between them across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Unfortunately, it seems like their friendship came to a bitter end after Nessa Barrett stopped following Mads Lewis on social media and deleted the many pictures she had of them posing together.

However, Mads is still following Nessa on Instagram and hasn’t taken down their pictures together, which had led to their fans and followers believing the bitterness is one-sided. Some have even speculated that their falling out might tie into the drama between Nessa and Chase Hudson.

Either way, it seems like something happened between them. Now, Nessa Barrett has been accused of adding more fuel to the fire after many claimed she shaded her ex-best friend once again.

Did Nessa Barrett shade Mads Lewis on Twitter?

Nessa Barrett posted a harmless Tweet stating, “Feature ideas for a song or just curious.” However, many of her followers weren’t sure what she meant and chimed in with countless collaboration suggestions.

A portion of them rummaged through a list of replies she had hidden and discovered Mads Lewis was a common denominator. “Pleasure feature Avani or Mads or Josh,” wrote one fan. “MADS,” and “Madison Lewis,” wrote two others.

Some of them found it a little odd and claimed it was another example of her throwing Mads Lewis some shade.

This prompted Nessa Barrett to respond, saying, “A lot of [people] didn’t know what I meant and were commenting song ideas to my tweet so I liked the first one that I saw was actually giving me feature ideas,” she said.

 “Nothing [about] this was supposed to be shady,” she added. “I just liked the first one that I saw.”

Needless to say, the situation and her response sparked a bit of division on social media.

Some believe there is unquestionable truth in her words, and the whole situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Others claim it’s pretty clear Nessa Barrett wasn’t keen on seeing Mads Lewis name in the suggestions, so she filtered them out.

Either way, it seems like the falling out is still fresh, and they won’t be mending their friendship anytime soon. However, time heals all wounds, and many mutual fans would love to see them reunited once again down the track.
