Written by on October 10, 2022

The President of the Los Angeles City Council, the United States, Nury Martinez has been asked by her Councilmember Mike Bonin to resign over racist comments she made in leaked audio.

Protesters also flooded Martinez’s residence demanding her resignation in the early hours of today chanting.

“we are currently allowing this people to do whatever they want, it is just blankly disrespectful and it is honestly evil and that is why we are out here, because we want to let her know that she will not be sitting there for much longer and we will get her out of office”, one of the protesters said.

Meanwhile, Martinez issued a public apology on Sunday, and added that the comments in question were made “in a moment of intense frustration and anger.”

According to reports, the comments Martinez referenced came from a conversation that happened around October 2021, which had to do with the redistricting process in a discussion which lasted about an hour.
