About

How TF Am I An Essential Worker refers to a copypasta on Twitter in which people post pictures of people in mascot costumes with the phrase "How TF am I an essential worker?" During lockdowns related to the Coronavirus, most businesses were closed unless they were declared "essential" by the government. "Essential" businesses included such grocery stores and pharmacies. As the first instance of the copypasta used a previously-existing picture, it is unclear if any of the examples were sincere.

Origin

The tweet gained over 58,000 retweets and 334,000 likes. However, the picture used had grown popular already[2] as part of the Let's get this bread meme.
