Democratic Charlottesville, Virginia, Mayor Nikuyah Walker tweeted a vulgar poem Wednesday comparing her city to a rapist.
“Charlottesville: The beautiful-ugly it is,” wrote Walker, who has been mayor since 2017. “It rapes you, comforts you in its c** stained sheets and tells you to keep its secrets.”
Facebook took down Walker’s post because of its vulgarity and temporarily locked her account, to which she responded by disseminating the post on Twitter and later posting an edited version.
“Is this better? I’m asking the person who reported my short poem to FB,” Walker wrote.
Charlottesville: The beautiful-ugly it is. It lynched you, hung the noose at city hall and pressed the souvenir that was once your finger against its lips. It covers your death with its good intentions. It is a place where white women with Black kids collects signature for a white man who questions whether a black woman understands white supremacy. It is destructively world class. White people say that it is a place where gentrification started with the election of a Black women in 2017 and because of white power, a lie becomes #facts. Its daily practice is that of separating you from your soul. Charlottesville is void of a moral compass. It’s as if good ole [Thomas Jefferson] is still cleverly using his whip to whip the current inhabitants into submissiveness. Charlottesville rapes you of your breaths. It suffocates your hopes and dreams. It liberates you by conveniently redefining liberation. It progressively chants while it conservatively acts. Charlottesville is anchored in white supremacy and rooted in racism. Charlottesville rapes you and covers you in sullied sheets.
“I have to speak candidly and honestly. I mean, it’s hurtful, I think it is offensive, I think it is over the line,” said Councilor Michael Payne, according to local CBS 19 News. “I’ve heard from multiple community members who have been survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence, and seeing this kind of language is just extremely hurtful to them.”
Charlottesville Communications Director Brian Wheeler told the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) he believes the posts are authentic. “The City of Charlottesville does not have a comment at this time,” Wheeler said. “I do believe the posts to be authentic.”
First elected to the Charlottesville City Council in 2017, Walker was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America.

As the DCNF reported:
The Charlottesville City Council voted three-to-two to elect Walker to serve a second term as Mayor in January, according to NBC29.
Walker revealed in February that she’s under investigation by Acting City Attorney Lisa Robertson for potentially misusing city funds, CBS19 reported.
Walker said during a city council meeting following her announcement that she was not aware that it was wrong of her to buy gift cards using city funds for citizens to participate in city discussions, the outlet reported.
City Counselor Lloyd Snook said during the meeting he was “told I was being a racist or white supremacist” for asking about the expenditures.
“There is a difference between you being racist, and if you want to own that, that is your business, and me saying that your actions are upholding white supremacy and institutional racism,” Walker responded.
