“Everyone’s like, ‘Don’t you have COVID? Don’t you literally have COVID?’ Yes, I f—-g have COVID. The whole f—–g world has COVID,” she says in the video.

The student then pans the camera to show a group of people partying in an outdoor area.

She then talks to the camera and says, “All of these people have COVID, so stop getting on my tip. Stop getting on my tip, like I’m having a good time. Thank you.”

The video was shared on Twitter by Taylor Smith who wrote, “What’s happening at Texas Tech. Side note, I do not know this girl but she was brave enough to post this for others to see! If you are selfish like this with no regards for others safety, f–k off!”

In another tweet, Smith wrote that she has reported the incident to the dean of students at Texas Tech University.

The video immediately went viral on Twitter with people lashing out at the girl for risking other people’s lives.

“So disgusting to watch fellow American citizens take life and liberty for granted. where is this woman’s sense of duty?” one user wrote.

“And this is why we can’t have nice things! I hope everyone that has been partying recklessly learns their lesson. There are so many people who don’t care about spreading COVID-19 because they see no consequences. This girl is one of many!” wrote another user.

“People are so extremely selfish. It’s my last semester and yeah I’d LOVE to go out and party with my friends but I’d much rather keep people and the school healthy. It’s just common sense,” another user tweeted.

Meanwhile, the University, which had reported over 700 COVID-19 cases as of Friday, is yet to comment on the incident.
