"Footage of a New York subway rider getting pushed by police started to circulate on Tuesday after he asked unmasked officers to wear facial coverings.

“My biggest thought was just disappointment,” Andrew Gilbert, the rider who was pushed by officers, told The New York Times in an interview.

Gilbert told the newspaper that he had confronted the officers at the Eighth Street subway station on Tuesday when he saw that they were not wearing masks, explaining that there was a brief back-and-forth before he was forcibly removed. Footage shows Gilbert being pushed out of the platform and through an exit gate.

By law, police officers are required to wear masks at public transit locations and the MTA requires people to wear masks inside the train and in subway stations, according to the Times.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said during a press conference on Wednesday that while he did not see everything that led up to the video, “I didn’t like what I saw one bit.”

“On the video, I saw one of the videos of a couple of officers removing someone from the subway. I was troubled by that video. I didn’t like what I saw one bit,” de Blasio said.”
