Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s Latest Video Is Not Hilarious, It’s Just Pathetic
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who recently admitted to smoking crack, now faces a new controversy:
Rob Ford , the mayor of Canada’s largest city, has been caught on video in an impaired rant saying he is going to kill someone and “rip his f—ing throat out.”
Ford slurs his words as he staggers around an unknown dining room, apparently high, ranting gibberish and gesticulating wildly.
“I’m gonna kill that f—ing guy. I’m telling you, it’s first-degree murder,” Ford rages as someone in the room secretly uses a cellphone to film the chief magistrate’s addled tirade.
Moments after the Star published the video online, Ford emerged from his office and apologized.
“The Toronto Star just released a video that I was very, very inebriated.
“All I can say is, again, I’ve made mistakes. I just wanted to come out and tell you I saw a video. It’s extremely embarrassing. The whole world’s going to see it. You know what? I don’t have a problem with that.”
“I hope none of you have ever or will ever be in that state. Obviously, I was extremely, extremely inebriated.”
At this point, I’ve really got to say that we’re at the point that laughing at Mayor Ford may not be the right reaction. He’s obviously a man with serious addiction problems at the very least. One can only hope that he gets helps for those issues before things end tragically.
