TORONTO — Olivia Chow doesn't think the Iron Sheik is so chic after all.

Two days after the WWE Hall of Famer met with the Toronto mayoral candidate at an impromptu "sandwich summit" lunch, where he endorsed her and she wore his championship belt, Chow is now distancing herself from him.

"I met the Iron Sheik around his film. I do not condone his hurtful and unacceptable comments. I should have read them and didn't. I apologize," Chow tweeted Monday afternoon.
