Toronto chair tosser snags moment of fame with dangerous act of stupidity

David MenziesMission Specialist

Tossing a chair from a high-rise condo onto a busy expressway is a dumb and dangerous thing to do.


Filming it and posting it on social media is equally dumb, but aspiring dental hygienist Marcella Zoia of Toronto, did this very thing recently and despite saying she deeply regrets it, the look on her smiling face as she waded through the media swarm outside the courthouse, seems to tell a different story.

It didn’t take very long for law enforcement to track down the 19-year-old Marcella, and there was no garbage-bag-over-the-head routine here to conceal her identity after her court hearing.

Indeed, she was basking in the attention of what she likely deemed to be the paparazzi, as though she had lived for this moment all her life — the centre of attention, her name and image going viral around the world.

It’s like we have a King of Comedy scenario playing out in the real world in 2019: Marcella Zoia has also become somewhat famous (at least for one segment of the 24-hour news cycle) due to an act of absolute stupidity that could’ve ended tragically.

The emergence of bogus celebrities thanks in large part to the Internet is now – what’s that term again? – oh, yes, the “new normal.”

The only question now is, how soon will it be before the reality TV people start contacting her?

“What about have the young lady write an essay , on the stupidity of peer pressure, and how to stand up to it . "

And give her a nice quiet little spot and lots of time to do it.

Heres what should be done:

Tossing that chair from the balcony could have resulted in someones death. It was stupid, and “peer pressure” brought it about ?

What about have the young lady write an essay , on the stupidity of peer pressure, and how to stand up to it .

It will be very “telling” in the coming days as to how the “legal system” in Toronto handles this… If this stunned bimbo isn’t hit hard by courts, it could set a very dangerous precedent as to what “self indulgent idiots” can get away with… Not that some slick-willie lawyer will try to do just that…

why not toss the “brain” out the same window and have her tied to the chair. of course block all traffic so everyone can see the loser fly and not get hurt themselves.

It isn’t a plausible defense for this criminal act , but the young lady is obviously suffering from some type of mental disorder. Delusions of grandeur as well as a lack of conscience for her actions.

Thank God nobody was hurt. I got to tell yo I don’t think I would want anyone so careless working on my teeth even if only in a cleaning capacity.

She definitely needs a few days in an orange jumpsuit for starts and some “professional counselling”.
Future Dr.Phil appearance? In this world anything is possible.

Bet, she is a Liberal.
commented 2019-02-16 03:33:15 -0500
But then again, she might be a prime partner for a “high heels” cycling Cabinet minister?

It’s high time to bring back the lash.That would wipe that smarmy smile off her phizog.
I would settle for her to be sucker punched and see her spitting chiclets.

I don’t know what it’s like now, but 25 years ago Penthouse because of her notoriety would have offered her 3/4 to 1 Million for the Centerfold. It is important to have a good smile.

I heard she tossed 2 chairs, 2 weapons that could have killed someone. I don’t care if she has a beautiful smile…she needs to face justice!!!

Did I miss something, or did this take place in the butt-hole, self proclaimed sanctuary city at their center of the Universe? Thought so.

Speaking of time in the slammer, this little tart should be serving some.
She can hardly contain her smile? There is a reason for that. Too much botox. I’m sure her parents are proud.

This Bimbo should be charged with attempted manslaughter. That chair could have caused a multiple vehicle accident resulting in serious injury and death. The least they could do is to send her for mental assessment.

I haven’t watched the video yet, but hopefully it wasn’t a dental chair!
All kidding aside, my younger sister and her husband were long haulers for many years. My sister was driving under an overpass at night, and a bunch of kids intentionally dropped a huge rock on their semi, that shattered their windshield. She said that the impact sounded like a shot gun in the cab. It cost them big bucks to clean up the mess, but luckily they weren’t killed.
