Today’s Idiot: Cathy Cruz Marrero
Today’s Idiot returns with a bloomin’ idiot! Cathy Cruz Marrero, a 49-year old Pennsylvania woman recently walked herself into a mall fountain. She had her nose buried in her cell phone texting a friend and walked straight into the water fountain in the middle of a shopping mall.
Surveillance footage of her short swim quickly made its way onto the internet and blew up YouTube. Despite being highly embarrassed and unidentifiable on the video, Ms. Cruz Marrero went on Good Morning America to complain about her accident and explain that she’s preparing a lawsuit, but she’s not sure who it will be against – and neither is her attorney.
Cruz Marrero complained to GMA that “Nobody [from the mall] called to see if I was okay.” I can only guess that is because people at the mall had to assume based on past experiences that Marrero is incapable of safely operating a telephone and did not want to risk any further injury or humiliation for the woman.
And while she and her legal team were more than happy to discuss Marrero’s poor treatment in regards to her mall fall, they would not comment on felony charges pending against her for credit card fraud.
