Mayor Gabe Brown on Facebook

WALTON, Ky. (CBS46) A mayor in Kentucky is getting plenty of attention after he called some of his constituents "dip****s" and told them the coronavirus is a "big ****ing deal."

Walton, Kentucky Mayor Gabe Brown posted an announcement on his Facebook page, "Listen up dips***s and sensible people. I might not have the best bedside manor. I might not put you at ease like the Governor does, but I don’t care. You need to realize that this is a serious ordeal. In fact, it’s a big f**cking deal. Stay at home."

He had quite a reaction for those who think he is spreading panic across his region, saying "I didn’t give you information to induce panic. I gave you information, so that you’d be informed. Maybe, just maybe, I am privy to information that you aren’t. I’m sorry for being the gossiping Mayor. I’m tired of Covid-19 conference calls. I take 3 a day, plus one extra on the weekend with Kenton County. If you don’t like what I’m telling you, then go buy some toilet paper."

He also had a warning for those who are not taking the coronavirus seriously, writing, "Treat this seriously. If you don’t, then screw you (f**k you is what I want to say, but I can’t)."

In a later post, Mayor Brown apologized for "losing his s**t" but in closing, did inform people to "Wash your hands you filthy animals."

Quite bold.
