Former Child Star Ricky Schroder Harasses Costco Employee Over Wearing A Mask In Viral Vid

UPDATE 05/17/21 2:30 P.M. PST: On Sunday, Ricky issued an apology to Jason as part of a lengthy new Instagram video explaining his recent outburst over Costco’s mask mandate. The actor expressed his regret for attacking the employee, saying:

“Jason, nothing personal. I’m not upset with you or anybody in the position like you have, who works for a living. I understand that you were following their laws and rules. I was trying to make a point to the corporate overlords and sorry that I had to use you to do it. And if I hurt your feelings, I apologize.”

Though the child star was definitely not apologizing for his rant, which he still deemed vital to get his message across, the performer added:

“I do think that independence from medical tyranny is more important than hurting people’s feelings, and so, I’m sorry I hurt your feelings. But I want us all to be free. I want us all to go back to the way it was. I don’t want this COVID reality they want, the COVID passports. I just don’t want it. And neither should you.”

So essentially he’s sorry, not sorry… Watch the full explanation vid (below)!


Ricky Schroder is not too happy about Costco’s mask policy, and he is letting everyone know it.

On Sunday, the former child star from Silver Spoons went viral on Twitter for arguing with a manager named Jason after he wouldn’t let Schroder in the store for not wearing a face covering. The 51-year-old actor told the supervisor from behind the camera:

“Didn’t you see the news? You didn’t see the news. Nationwide, Costco has said you don’t need to wear masks.”

However, the employee explained the state-wide mask mandate in California and the company’s current rules, which is still following all of the local guidelines until told otherwise. Ricky, though, did not like the answer and proceeded to rant about the state being ruined by COVID-19 measures.

“Oh, if they allow us? If they grant us that, our kings? The people in power? You’re gonna listen to these people? They’ve destroyed our economy. They’re destroying our culture. They’re destroying our state, and you’re just gonna listen to their rules.”

While the CDC has lifted restrictions for those who are fully vaccinated, masks are still required in California until June 15, according to CBS Sacramento. The business also announced on Friday that US locations with no state or local mask requirements may allow vaccinated members to not wear a mask in certain areas of the store. The official statement read:

“In Costco locations where the state or local jurisdiction does not have a mask mandate, we will allow members and guests who are fully vaccinated to enter Costco without a face mask or face shield. We will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask for members’ responsible and respectful cooperation with this revised policy. Face coverings will still be required in healthcare settings, including Pharmacy, Optical, Hearing Aid. Costco continues to recommend that all members and guests, especially those who are at higher risk, wear a mask or shield.”

Obviously, the New York native did not care to follow the rules. Schroder goes on to reveal he has asked to speak to the manager to get a refund — presumably to have his membership canceled.

“I’m getting my refund. I’m getting my refund from Costco. I suggest everybody in California get their refund from Costco. Give up your membership to Costco until they remove this.”

Ch-ch-check out the crazy footage (below):

It should go without saying, but it looks like some people still need a reminder. Don’t attack employees over policies they have absolutely no control over. They don’t make the rules; they are just there to enforce them. What are your thoughts on the viral video from Ricky? Let us know in the comments (below)!
