Toronto's most talked-about resident today is infamous chair girl Marcella Zoia, who pleaded guilty to mischief endangering life this morning for the time she threw a patio chair off of a high-rise condo balcony and onto Toronto's Gardiner Expressway below back in February.
The incident went viral, thanks to video footage posted on social media, which was apparently taken by a friend.
When you deliberately throw a chair on the highway which could cause an accident and possibly death, $2k doesn't cut it.— Linda Gauthier (@gauthier_linda) November 15, 2019
Don't think you are not above the law and a star because of this, because, you are not. Jail time is fitting for the crime.#chairgirl #marcellazoia #toronto https://t.co/0ysjs56vQN
People are reacting to the news of the local Toronto celeb's plea today in pretty much the same way they've been reacting to her story all along: with outrage and disgust.

She should definitely go to prison for 6 months.
Send a message to all like her that this stupidity will not be tolerated. #cdnpoli #MarcellaZoia https://t.co/dLA74dA9Ju
The general consensus is that her actions — including throwing the furniture from the 45th-floor balcony, as well as her subsequent missed court dates and apparent nonchalance about the whole situation — were reprehensible, with many calling for severe punishment, including jail time.
Chair-thrower Marcella #Zoia pleads guilty to mischief in Toronto court https://t.co/nyhthNMaUS Well this idiot who could have killed someone in her temper tantrum, doesn't look the least remorseful. Jail her - that might improve her attitude.— Christine Rome (@youngawd) November 15, 2019
Some are upset about the media's continued coverage of the case, noting that the attention, which is seemingly the reason she performed the stunt, has gone to 19-year-old Zoia's head.
Why are you all giving her all this attention? Isn’t that part of the problem? Her actions don’t deserve this kind of coverage. This attention is part of what she was hoping to do with that video and you all are helping her.— Jooyoung Lee🥋 (@theyoungjoo) November 15, 2019
Generally, people are not happy with the whole cringeworthy ordeal.
Lol marcella zoia is inlove with the clout shes getting, she posts her living life but yet her lawyer is stating shes suffering from severe anxiety .. BULLSHIT, serve ya time dummy.— QUEEN MELZZZ♛ (@_melaniexxo) November 15, 2019
And a few are making light of Zoia's long-awaited appearance in court today — as well as, yes, her actual physical appearance while in court today.
She's hot and deserves to be freed of any charges.— null (@FrontalNode) November 15, 2019
Zoia could serve six months in prison. Her sentencing hearing will take place in Toronto on January 14.
