Jordan Boswell, the NDP for the Brampton Centre riding, has been exposed on Twitter for having sexually shamed a sex trafficking victim in 2012. In his original post, Boswell was found making fun of the victim’s appearance, suggesting she was too unattractive to be considered by a pimp and sex trafficker.
“Geez they’re really letting everyone into that business these days #gottagetmesomeofthat,” Boswell wrote in a tweet caption to an article celebrating the woman’s freedom. The article’s headline was “Former teenage prostitute says more can be done to help vulnerable girls avoid life in the sex trade.”
The tweet was dug up earlier in the week and Boswell made a public apology via Twitter on Wednesday. He writes, “I deeply regret the hurtful and wrong comment I made on social media. I understand this type of language is offensive and harmful. I apologize unequivocally.”
Unsurprisingly, many are disappointed with the candidate, who was admittedly young when he made his inappropriate tweet. A major backlash soon ensued, and Boswell has all but disappeared since his apology, despite there only being three days until the election.
