Public’s Best Interest

Lorne Grabher has proudly sported a vanity plate with his last name on it for 25 years—but, just months after Donald Trump’s infamous “grab her by the p*ssy” comments, Canadian authorities refused to renew the Nova Scotia man’s license plate.

“A compliant was received, outlining how some individuals interpret it as misogynistic and promoting violence against women,” said Brian Taylor, a spokesman for Department of Transportation, in an emailed statement. “With no way to denote that it is a family name on the plate, the department determined it was in the public’s best interest to remove it from circulation.”

Во имя общего блага, так сказать. Надо бы его еще заставить сменить фамилию, а то ишь.
