Dave Gettleman explains why he put on mask while alone in room

Dave Gettleman mask

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has become somewhat of a punching bag among the online community. On Thursday, he did something that earned him plenty of ridicule online, though he had a good explanation for it.

Gettleman was at home for the NFL Draft and his home setup was shown on TV by ESPN. As he was shown on TV, Gettleman put on a mask, which looked bizarre since he was sitting by himself.

Many instantly wondered why Gettleman would be wearing a mask indoors and seemingly alone.

If you mocked Gettleman for his precaution, get ready to feel like a jerk.

Gettleman told reporters that he was wearing the mask because an IT worker was also in the room with him. The Giants general manager is trying to be extra careful because he is a cancer survivor who has undergone chemotherapy.
