Influential Toronto Woman Dispenses Safety Advice: 'Don't Dress Like a Whore'

WTF is wrong with Toronto's first family? Shortly after police warned women about a series of local sexual assaults in a news conference, Krista Ford, daughter of Councilor Doug Ford and niece of Mayor Rob Ford, tweeted: "Stay alert, walk tall, carry mace, take self-defence classes & don't dress like a whore" along with the tags "#DontBeAVictim" and "#StreetSmart."

Krista, who describes herself as a personal trainer, promotional model and TV personality but is also a former member of a Lingerie Football League, should maybe catch up on her city's not-so-current events: the international SlutWalk movement launched last year after a Toronto police officer told a group of students that "women should avoid dressing like sluts not to be victimized." Also: apparently mace is a "prohibited and restricted weapon" in Toronto. Krista hasn't responded to requests for comment and her Twitter account is now set to private — which is probably a good thing, because she gives incredibly shitty advice.
