New Baltimore mayor argues with man during presser, calls him “fam” & “shorty”

Baltimore’s new mayor seemed a little too casual when it came to dealing with a member of the public, referring to the individual as “shorty” during a public statement on coronavirus.

Brandon Scott, the young mayor of Maryland’s biggest city, was presenting a COVID-19 update on Tuesday, discussing whether or not he would roll back lockdown restrictions.

“Shorty pull your mask up, man,” he said to an individual in the crowd.

When the individual responded, Scott paused.

“Shorty,” he said. “C’mon, man, look.. People dyin’, Shorty.”

After an exchange, Scott urged “Shorty” to wait until after the statements.

“‘Fam, hold tight for a second,” he said.

It is unknown if the individual being spoken to so casually was male or female.

Current restrictions cap capacity for retail and religious institutions, gyms, malls and museums to 25 percent, and have banned people from dining in.

Tired of social media platforms silencing voices they don’t agree with?
