Rob Ford Shocks Twitter With Rehab Announcement (And New Drug Video)


rob ford

Twitter was shocked last night by the actions of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. They just couldn’t decide what was more shocking: The fact that the Mayor had been caught smoking crack again or that he made an announcement saying that he would take a leave of office to go to rehab.

A new video surfaced last night that reportedly shows Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack in his sister’s basement.

Yes, it’s pretty shocking to see an elected official hold a crack pipe up to his mouth but at this point, well, it would probably be more shocking to see Rob Ford eating a banana. Twitter wasn’t too surprised by the new allegations. They were, however, pretty upset with how the Ford situation is unfolding.

For instance, Ford is not resigning. HE’S NOT RESIGNING. He reportedly got caught smoking crack AGAIN and he isn’t resigning.

Here are a few of the best Twitter reactions to the Rob Ford video.

The video shows Rob Ford holding a pipe but we can’t verify the substance he is smoking. So let’s forget about that for a moment. The tape is still pretty damaging due to some crude comments he allegedly makes about Karen Stintz and his wife, Renata.

For instance, when someone asks Ford what he thinks about his opponent Karen Stintz, Ford said: “I’d like to f—–g jam her.”

Ford didn’t exactly deny the quote but he did say that “jamming” wasn’t part of his usual vocabulary. Unsurprisingly, Ford also said that he doesn’t remember the video.

Ford released a statement last night saying that this was the “most difficult time in his life.”

Ford said: “I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence… I have tried to deal with these issues by myself over the past year. I know that I need professional help and I am now 100% committed to getting myself right.”

Do you think it’s time for Rob Ford to resign? Rob Ford’s political fate hasn’t been decided yet but his office is still moving forward. Apparently they are still looking for interns. So if you want some experience on the finer points of crack addiction….
