Last week, Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro caused a minor stir by getting his boxers in a bundle about Lady Gaga smoking a little weed onstage in Amsterdam. At the launch of a new anti-drug campaign in Staten Island, Molinaro called Gaga a “slut” who is “influencing many, many children” with her despicable pot-smoking harlotry.

Now, several city luminaries, including Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, are calling Molinaro out. “In addition to her artistic pursuits, she is a social justice activist and a real leader for marriage equality in this country,” Stringer said in a statement. Staten Island Councilwoman Debi Rose and National Organization of Women NYC executive director Sonia Ossorio also made statements denouncing the Staten Island Republican’s words.
