A Florida attorney who dressed up as a grim reaper and ordered hundreds of body bags to hand to Florida beach goers to warn them about spreading coronavirus has been going to protests in Florida with huge crowds during the pandemic.

Daniel Uhlfelder was shrouded in black and carried a scythe May 1 while roaming the beaches in Walton County, Florida, telling CNN that the beaches were “very crowded” and that “if we don’t take measures to control things, the virus is going to get really, really out of control.”

Ironically, as recently as June 6, Uhlfelder continued to push for stricter stay-at-home orders, accusing Florida Gov. DeSantis of having "blood on his hands" for reopening the state's economy and beaches too early.
