TORONTO (AP) - Kevin Spacey on Saturday tweeted a Photoshopped image of himself between Toronto mayor Rob Ford and his brother in response to the siblings’ criticism that he won’t take photos with them.
The embattled mayor said he wouldn’t know Spacey “if I ran over him.” Ford’s brother called the actor “an arrogant SOB.” The pair made the comments on their show on YouTube named after the mayor’s supporters.
Ford has been under great pressure to resign since he admitted smoking crack last year, and several videos have emerged that showed him seemingly drunk or high. His antics have made him the target of late-night television comedians as well as embarrassed Canadians. City Council stripped him of many of his powers but does not have the authority to remove him.
Undaunted, Ford has vowed to run for re-election this fall.
