Face masks are an essential way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, not everyone is on board with wearing face masks when they are out in public. If face masks are not required by law, some people might choose to leave them at home or in their pocket instead of actually wearing a mask.

Recently, Judith Sheindlin, who you probably know as Judge Judy, was in a hair salon when she saw a man who wasn’t wearing a face mask. If you’ve ever wondered if the famous judge is just as tough in real life as she is on TV, this story will probably answer that question.

Sheindlin, who was wearing a face mask, confronted the man by asking him a simple question. She asked, “Do you like ‘Judge Judy?'” When he answered, “Yes,” she knew just what to say. She responded by saying, “Not after today.”

Then, Sheindlin proceeded to rip into him just like she would on her show. She told him, “You must be some kind of narcissist or there’s something that I don’t see that makes you unique and special.”

Later, Sheindlin says that the man came over to her, this time with a mask on his face, and apologized. It seems that the judge’s harsh words made him have a change of heart.

“Judge Judy” is currently in it’s 25th and final season. The reality TV judge has had a very long and successful career that began long before she was ever seen on TV. Watch the video below to learn more about Sheindlin’s life and career as well as what her plans are when “Judge Judy” ends.
