19-year-old Marcella Zoia has faced hardship since the “chair-throwing incident”, according to her legal counsel.
Although it may seem difficult to sympathize with her, Marcella Zoia has been having a rough time since the infamous incident. The 19-year-old Toronto woman who hurled a chair and other items off a downtown Toronto condo balcony in February has reportedly been suffering. Marcella Zoia has faced “personal problems” since the “chair-throwing” video went viral, including the loss of numerous friends and being kicked out of school.
Zoia’s lawyer, Gregory Leslie, offered some insight into the challenges the young woman has been experiencing since charges against her were laid last month. Not only have her friends isolated her, but she also lost her spot in a dental hygiene program, he tells CP24.
Outside of a courthouse, after appearing in court on Zoia’s behalf this morning, Leslie informed reporters that he believes the situation has been “extremely embarrassing” for Zoia. “I think she’s lost a lot of her friends”, he explains.
He also references issues that have arisen between Zoia and her mother, but claims those problems have since been “worked out”. Leslie confirmed in a statement to NewsTalk1010 that Zoia indeed has been expelled from her school, concluding “she’s been having a hard time dealing with this”.
