‘Chair girl’ influencer Marcella Zoia celebrates dodging jail and surge in followers after throwing chair off 45th floor


- Advertisment -

DESPERATE show-off influencer Marcella Zoia is celebrating a surge in Instagram followers after she dodged jail despite heaving a chair off a 45th floor balcony.

After being filmed callously hurling the furniture from the high-rise, Marcella Zoia, 20, nicknamed “Chair Girl”, pleaded guilty to a charge of mischief endangering life.

The Canadian’s ridiculous stunt for likes was filmed last February in a video that eventually went viral.

Despite prosecutors in Toronto, seeking a six-month jail term for the Instagram star, she was instead handed a £1,000 fine, 150 hours of community service and two years probation.

She entered her plea in November but her sentencing was delayed several times partly due to the Covid-19 pandemic and it was finally handed down via teleconference yesterday.

Zoia apparently had ‘a tear in her eye’ after sentencing

Her lawyer, Gregory Leslie, said he was pleased with the sentence and that Zoia – who has more than 60K Instagram followers – was “ecstatic” that the case was finally over.

Mr Leslie said his client had been scared about the prospect of going to jail and “maybe had a tear or two in her eyes” when she learned of her punishment.

He said Zoia had been drinking alcohol the night before the incident and was influenced by peer pressure when she threw the chair from the high-rise balcony of a rented apartment in Toronto, reports CTV News.

Mr Leslie was shown in a selfie with his client after sentencing, as Zoia celebrated with a champagne-filled party as she twerked with pals, said local reports.

The chair landed on the Gardiner Expressway – one of the city’s busiest highways.

The young star is believed to have thrown the chair at around 10am on a Saturday morning when the road was busy with traffic – thankfully no injuries were reported as a result of the idiotic stunt.

Zoia turned herself in to police in Canada in February last year after footage of the incident was uploaded on social media.

She issued an apology vowing to take “responsibility” for her actions.

The star wrote: “I apologise to everyone offended by my actions. I truly regret it and I will take responsibility.”

Before her sick stunt Zoia had just 4,000 followers – this has been considerably boosted to 61,200.
