Although the multi-millionaire celebrities in attendance are shown mask-less on screen, King indicated that once cameras are done rolling they are immediately required to put them back on.
“Yes, we are doing it mask-less. You are probably asking how are they able to do that?” said King.
“Well, think of this as a movie set. An Oscars movie with a cast of over 200 nominees. People have been vaxxed tested, retested, socially distanced, and we are following all of the rigorous protocols that got us back to work safely,” King continued.
This would be the appropriate question, of course https://t.co/rsE29F4LGd
