While some commenters criticized Handler for seemingly wasting two face masks that could have been used to be worn over the mouth and nose as instructed, plenty of her fans applauded her not only for the entertaining video but also encouraging people to wear masks."To all of you that don't get it...she's not making fun of wearing a mask. She's encouraging it with some humor," one user wrote on Handler's Instagram post.
"The new sports bra," one user wrote. "Watch out, Lululemon."This wasn't Handler's first PSA-of-sorts about mask-wearing. In April, the TV personality taught her fans how to make a face mask using a conventional cup bra."For those of you who are in a bind and need a face mask but don't have one, you can just take one of your bras if you have big boobs," Handler said in her Instagram video.
The comedian showed how to turn the undergarment into a mask by covering one's mouth with the bra cup, then wrapping the straps around the face and neck and clasping the hook at the back of one's head.

"With masks in short supply, we have to take matters into our own hands. Men included," Handler captioned the post.
Mask-wearing has become a hotly debated topic in America, despite recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and health expertsHandler's recent video is numbered among many others from celebrities urging their followers to wear face masks in public in compliance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization, and national health experts, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci.
On Thursday, the CDC published a press release of a study from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which explains that "there is increasing evidence that cloth face coverings help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others."
The practice is effective when the majority of people in a community wear cloth face coverings, the JAMA study says.Despite this guidance — and a recent finding that suggests if everyone in the US wore a mask, 33,000 lives could be saved over the next three months — some people continuously refuse to wear the coverings in public.
