[Chicago] Mayor Lori Lightfoot Monday defended getting her hair cut over the weekend at a time when beauty parlors are shut down.
The mayor couldn’t help but acknowledge it after photos surfaced on social media showing her after getting her hair cut without wearing a mask.
“I’m in the public every day. And candidly, my hair was not looking the way it did. I thought maybe I’d do it myself, but I knew that would be disaster,” the mayor said.
“But I think what really people want to talk about is, we’re talking about people dying here. We’re talking about significant health disparities. I think that’s what people care most about.”
The cop-out response did not go over well with Twitter users.
Lightfoot got a haircut yesterday. Usually trivial, but my friends who work at salons are out of work. What makes the mayor so special?

Mayor Lightfoot got a haircut.I’m an out of work stylist trying my best to practice social distancing to save lives.Does this mean it’s now acceptable to travel to my clients to do their hair?Or is this type of service only for the privileged?#DOASISAYNOTASIDO @LightfootForChi pic.twitter.com/4xrjyC093W

Lightfoot just defender herself for getting a hair cut, said a mask and gloves was worn while giving haircut. If that’s all it takes everyone get your masks and gloves and get back to work! #fraud
