On Saturday, Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro led a mob of biker fans through the streets of Sao Paulo — and was fined for failing to wear a mask, despite local pandemic laws.

The conservative president waved to the crowd from his motorcycle and later from atop a sound truck, where helmeted but mostly maskless supporters cheered and chanted as he insisted that masks were useless for those who had already been vaccinated, a claim that most public health experts disagree with.

According to the press office of the state government of Sao Paulo, a fine of roughly $110 will be issued for violating a provision that has required masks in public areas since May 2020.
