Councilwoman Michele Fiore Mocks Masks With “#N69” Panty Mask Photo

Las Vegas Councilwoman Michele Fiore has previously been criticized for her responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, she’s tweeted a photo of herself wearing a mask, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to offer much protection. Making light of the matter, she called it a “N69” mask, and suggested that it looked a lot like a pair of lacy panties.

In the tweet, Fiore’s face is partially covered by a very lacy mask. As one commenter put it, it resembles a doily more than panties. However, Fiore made light of mask mandates, calling the item an “N69” mask (a play on N85 and N95 masks, named for their filtration level, and a sexual reference) and telling commenters to not “get your panties in a wad.”

Twitter users expressed frustration with her mockery of mask-wearing.

Fiore was previously criticized for pushing for Las Vegas to open back up, despite the pandemic, and saying that she assumes everyone is a carrier of the virus. Newsweek reports that as one of the people involved with planning to reopen the city, Fiore had previously shown her lack of expertise in the scientific and medical fields by saying that she believes cancer is a fungus that can be flushed out of the veins with salt water, and decrying the fact that this isn’t an approved treatment.

She ended up resigning from her position as mayor pro team of Las Vegas last month, after making racist comments to express her feelings about affirmative action, comparing the qualifications of her “white a**” to “someone’s black a**.”
