‘You haven’t seen the last of me’ warns Nika Soon-Shiong

Nika Soon-Shiong bid farewell to West Hollywood and her colleagues on the Public Safety Commission by rehashing a familiar list of grievances at her final meeting Monday night.

The billionaire heiress, appointed by Councilmember Lindsey Horvath less than a year ago, is leaving town to finish her studies at Oxford. Her successful work getting WeHo to pull funding from the sheriff’s department drew much scrutiny from the public and the media — too much, in her opinion.

“This experience unleashed a completely overwhelming amount of hate, misinformation, racism and misogyny,” Soon-Shiong said.

She appeared to place the blame squarely on WEHOville’s shoulders.

“It started with a local blog that reached out to me describing their personal fascination* with me, not the substance of my ideas, but me — and then dedicated way too much time into crafting a caricature that I do not recognize,” she said, decrying our parodical illustrations of her as “not normal.”

She then vowed to return one day, ominously declaring “You haven’t seen the last of me.”

Commissioner Jackie Steele echoed the implication that Soon-Shiong had been the victim of bullying by this publication before taking a jab of her own.

“It’s a blog,” she said. “Who cares about a local blog filled with misinformation with about seven commenters? My dog has more followers. It’s not that interesting, period.”

Well, at least we got her nails right.

*My only correspondence with Soon-Shiong. She did not reply.

I always come away from these letters sections feeling so much better about myself, as though I’m the last happy person in West Hollywood.

Not quite the last. I think pretty much the same thing.

If I were her dog, I’d feel very unsafe… for numerous reasons. Including the fact that people who have social media accounts for their pets are wackadoodles.

Thank you for letting me know that Lindsey Horvath is responsible for this train wreck that has destroyed the safety of our city, while living behind secured fences.

The Soon Shiongs are a hateful racist bigoted clan devoted to the destruction of Los Angeles.
Particularly ironic given that the elder grew up in apartheid South Africa. One would think he would be sensitive to race-baiting. Alas, not.

Serious question: where are the examples of the “racism” and “misogyny” she claims were unleashed? Does she actually point to specific examples or is she just making a blanket statement that we are all expected to accept as fact because she declared it to be so?

Actually, I’d point to January 6th to say that you MAGAts are the violent fascists. But you’d just say it’s fake news. 🙄

The big Q I have is why does ONE council member have the power to appoint someone to such a consequential position?

Commissioners should have broader requirements and be voted in by the full city council.

Yes, it’s such an insignificant blog we felt we needed to publicly comment on it. Also, playing the racism and misogyny cards simply implies she has nothing.
