Twitterverse vs. Brazeau in battle of the sexist


Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau can’t get it right.

First he gets pummeled in a boxing match against Justin Trudeau, then he gets grilled on Twitter after making sexist remarks to a CP reporter.

Hours after CP reporter Jennifer Ditchburn tweeted a story she wrote about how Brazeau is both the youngest senator and the senator with the worst attendance in the Senate, Brazeau took it personally.

“when u smile Jen, others suffer. Change the D to a B in your last name and we’re even! Don’t mean it but needs saying,” he tweeted at her earlier today.

His remarks prompted immediate and fiery retorts from many on Twitter, even those beyond Brazeau’s nearly 2,000 followers.

He recently tweeted at her again, saying, “U disregarded what I told u. Didn’t insinuate anything, rather was a response due to my personal circumstance. No offence svp.” and “perhaps we should even take the time to sit down and chat to get facts before publishing one-sided stories. I’m open.”

Not surprisingly, some of the online remarks from fellow tweeters suggest that it may be time to abolish the Senate.
