Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot denied what she called “homophobic, racist and misogynistic rumors” claiming she intended to leave Sunday.
The mayor of the country’s third-biggest city gave the disavowal following an evening of rumors spread on Twitter and somewhere else.
“Great morning from my house in Sauganash,” Lightfoot presented in reference on far and wide rumors the previous summer that she purchased a multimillion dollar manor in the opulent Northside area.
“Truly, however — our city doesn’t possess any energy for homophobic, racist and misogynistic rumors, today or quickly,” Lightfoot proceeded.
“It’s stunning and frustrating to see some media individuals and checked Twitter handles are hawking this garbage as truth.”
Unverified rumors of Lightfoot’s evidently approaching abdication flowed on Twitter on Saturday night into early Sunday morning.
Chicago has been nervous for quite a long time after a city cop shot and killed 13-year-old Adam Toledo a month ago.
Authorities had recently portrayed the shooting as an “equipped showdown,” however upsetting bodycam film delivered on Thursday showed Toledo unarmed with his hands up the second he was shot.
In her tweets Sunday, Lightfoot approached city occupants to dismiss the rumors and get behind her leadership.
“On the off chance that individuals hadn’t saw, we have significant difficulties in Chicago we need to address TOGETHER,” she posted.
“Any individual who needs to work with me to gain ground, I’m prepared. Regardless of whether we don’t generally agree, in the event that you really love this city and need to be important for improving it, we should accomplish the work. Most of you, move,” she said.
Lightfoot’s office didn’t quickly return a solicitation for input.
