Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot (D.) is on defense after she was spotted getting a haircut, flouting Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order that also shut down nonessential businesses like hair salons.
Photos emerged Sunday of Lightfoot getting a trim after the mayor made public service announcements encouraging social distancing and saying activities like “getting your roots done” were not essential.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lightfoot was flustered Monday when reporters confronted her about the mixed messaging.
The report states Lightfoot reasoned that if she did her hair herself, it would be a “disaster,” and claimed it was important since she was out in the public.
“I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I take my personal hygiene very seriously. I felt like I needed to have a haircut. I’m not able to do that myself, and so, I got a haircut. You want to talk more about that?” Lightfoot told reporters.
Lightfoot reasoned that it was ok since her hair stylist wore a mask and gloves.
Screenshots of the Facebook post by Cashmere Neal have been shared on social media. In the post, Neal writes, “On this beautiful Sunday I had the pleasure of giving Mayor Lightfoot a hair trim. Lori Lightfoot, thank you for all the hard work & dedication put forth to help out city. It was a very relaxing experience. She let me play my music and get in my mode. Very nice lady & down to earth.”
Mayor Lightfoot decided it was essential for her to get a haircut, but no one else can go out and get one. This doesn’t look like social distancing to us, why the hypocrisy @chicagosmayor? pic.twitter.com/iEi7zIqnwO
