Krista Ford, (now an International story) niece of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford made a tweet recently saying “Don’t dress like a whore” and has since apologized, but women’s groups think she is way offside.
Just what the Mayor needs, another issue, but is he responsible, not at all.
It appears her attempt was to empower women but it clearly backfired.
We all must remember once you click enter on twitter, it can never be taken back, and Krista has already blocked her twitter account from unauthorized followers.
She misspoke and tried to say what women wear is the problem, which is grossly wrong. Women are not the problem, they are the victims, and yet women must be more aware.
I often see young women walking alone at night, up back lanes and at outdoor bank machines without looking around. It’s not what you wear, it’s how you conduct yourself and be prepared.
Mayor Rob Ford tried to sneak into the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) just around 7pm tonight and tried to avoid the media who had spotted him leaving his vehicle to take his family to the EX.
He’s still driving as well, but it didn’t seem like he was reading.
UPDATE: Mayor Ford did make a statement at the CNE, he said “It’s a mistake she made, she regrets and she apologized for it, she’s very young right, I think we’re all young, and we all did things that we regret when we were younger. And that’s one of the things, she made a mistake and apologized and we have to move on now.”
UPDATE - Nice try Krista, but it doesn’t wash, the apology seems like it has a disclaimer, “I apologize if I did.” You did cause an alarm and an insult, there’s no question, why don’t you JUST apologize properly without the ‘IF’? This embarrassed your father and your uncle and your whole family.
Your father Doug said, “That’s not the way we raised her, and to be very blunt, we chewed her ass out from one end to the other.”
This comment/tweet caused quite a lot of distress to a young women who was actually assaulted as she walked in downtown Toronto, and she wrote an open letter to Krista which caused her so-called apology. You can see it HERE on FaceBook.
Krista was a member of a now defunct, lingerie football league in Toronto but they are still operating elsewhere.
The Toronto Star won’t let it go, they are not supporters of ‘any’ Ford, and thus have another story today slamming what she said. And just to clear some things up, she is not a ‘KID’ she is a 21-year-old young women and should know better, as an adult.
