A few also found the video distasteful given the office Ms. Marin occupies.
“Is this acceptable behavior on the part of the Prime Minister? I don’t think so,” one comment read.

It’s not the first time that Ms Marin has been the subject of criticism. Last year, in December, the prime minister apologized after it emerged she had been out late at the weekend despite knowing she had been exposed to COVID-19.
