For the time being, the Paris City Hall has not responded to requests from Le
But Jean-Luc Romero, deputy mayor, rejected any responsibility for Anne Hidalgo on Twitter: “
Well let’s see.
The mayor would therefore be responsible that at an evening - organized by an association and not the town hall - a person we do not know out of 1000 present did things in the toilets to create a buzz?

Icy Diamond is not his first media stunt.
The one who presents herself on her website as a “
22-year-old trans woman

” had been invited to the
Touche set not at my post!
In a video that had gone viral, the prostitute pushed back a protester who came to touch her chest as she marched topless with opponents of the pension reform.
Whores also ask for access and the right to retirement
