CRENSHAW DISTRICT — A large contingent of television media made its way to the Crenshaw Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza to hear Mayor Eric Garcetti address the chamber.
It was the first time a Los Angelesmayor had addressed the local chamber but the media crowd that swarmed around the mayor was more interested in asking him about the F-bomb he dropped at Staples Center Monday during the celebration of the Los Angeles Kings winning the Stanley Cup.
Holding a container of beer in one hand, Garcetti said there are two rules for politicians. “They say never ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never swear. But this is a big … day.”
Garcetti joked with the media Tuesday, telling children not to use the word the mayor did. He also said he had been chastised by his mother over the phone for the language he used.
