“Take off your masks" was the message a group of anti-mask protesters were hoping to get across at a Target in Florida.

The maskless flash mob walked down the aisles of the Fort Lauderdale store encouraging shoppers to stop wearing masks.

In the video posted to Twitter on Tuesday, the protest was set to the tune of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by the Twisted Sister.

The group included about a dozen anti-maskers who were mostly young. One of the men was wearing a MAGA hat.

In the video above, one of the protesters can be heard shouting “we’re Americans, breathe” as they urged customers to disregard recommendations from health officials to wear a face covering to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

One woman even pointed to the children in the group and said, “Look at the kids,” adding, “Let them be an example.”

The group also chanted, “No, we ain’t gonna take it,” and, “It’s all about choice,” as they made their way through the store.

"We’re aware of the group of guests who came into the store last night and we asked them to leave after they removed their masks and became disruptive and rude to other shoppers," a Target spokesperson told FOX Business.

The video caught the attention of Dee Snider, the Twisted Sister frontman, who slammed the protestors on Twitter writing that they did “not have my permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause.”

The protest comes as coronavirus cases continue to grow. According to Florida health officials, there are more than 663, 000 positive COVID cases in Florida as more than 13,000 people have died from the virus. Since Wednesday, Florida added 2,355 cases.
