So unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few weeks, you know that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is in a bit of a pickle. He’s been accused — actually, now admitted — to smoking crack cocaine, being very drunk in public and … just today … been caught on camera threatening to kill someone.
Toronto is a divided city: those who hate the guy, feels he’s embarrassing us and has to go — and those in “Ford Nation” who love the guy, want to forgive his foibles and feel he’s a “man of the people.”
And of course, those people take to Twitter to vent their anger or their love. Unfortunately, they don’t check the correct Twitter account — this one — and use the wrong Twitter account — this one. (There’s also this one but he seems to have escaped the wrath.)
The former fake Rob Ford, not the latter fake Rob Ford — this is so bloody confusing! — has been featured in the media and just wants to live a quiet life. Can’t say I blame him.
So, to all the British fake Rob Fords out there, we want you to know that Brits in Toronto has your back and support from across the pond!
