on social media

He often engages with commenters and
followers on the photo-sharing social media mobile application owned by
Facebook, but Kernes got testy in a recent exchange under a photo of a pasta
dish he posted on March 16.

“Listen, you evil (expletive)
commentators, if you have that to say then just get together and (expletive)
each other,” the mayor wrote to a user named filatovi4. According to the user’s Instagram profile,
filatovi4 is a freelance jewelry designer. It’s unclear where he is from. It is
also not clear what started the colorful exchange, as it appears some of the
previous messages from him have been deleted.

Users were quick to side with Kernes in
the virtual dust-up, including user Nelly5556, whose real name is Nelly
Tsybulnik. Responding directly to Kernes’
comment, Tsybulnik wrote, “(Kernes) cool! You did them good!”
