Reporter Kari Lake from Fox10 has apologized after she sent out a tweet appearing to say that the #Red4Ed movement was a cover to try and push for the legalization of marijuana.
The full tweet reads:
“What did I say?! #RedForEd is nothing more than a push to legalize pot. Check this out. T-Shirts are already printed!! This is a big push to legalize pot and to make it more savory by tossing teachers a bone with a substantial raise. #IHateTheDishonesty”
She apologized the during the next evening newscast after severe backlash from citizens and politicians in support of the movement and protests.
