Tina Olivero dropped out of the race on Friday after CBC Newfoundland reportedly asked her about a labour dispute with her former nanny in which Olivero was ordered to pay more than $23,000 outstanding wages.
This is Tina Olivero. She's running for the Progressive Conservatives in the provincial election in Newfoundland.
She's the kind of person who just wants everyone to get along.
She wants you to always be true to yourself. Don't ever let your race or culture change that!
Despite the positivity gushing from Olivero's account, she got herself into a bit of a sticky situation this week with this tweet.
...and this reply, among others.
People became negative. 😞
Someone even created a Kijiji ad about her selling medical textbooks.
But Olivero just couldn't understand why everyone was being so mean to her.
To clarify her comments to the #haters, she wrote an explanation on Facebook that is more than 2,300 words-long.
Just stay positive, guys!
