UPDATE: Kevin Spacey responds to Doug Ford attacks

Doug Ford ticked the actor wouldn't pose for photo at Kimmel

Actor Kevin Spacey has obliged Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, posting a picture of himself with the pair on Twitter.

According to Doug Ford, our Mayor may have been given the cold shoulder by the popular actor while on a recent trip to L.A.

On "Ford Nation," the YouTube series produced by the brothers, Councillor Ford says while the mayor was waiting to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Fords were told they couldn't talk to or take a picture with Spacey.

He called Spacey "an incredible actor,'' but said he also thinks the star is "an arrogant S.O.B.''

"Kevin, why don't you get off your high horse and be real and take pictures with people," Ford said.

Mayor Ford says he doesn't watch movies and wouldn't know him if he ran him over.

On Saturday, Spacey responded with this tweet.

 Later in the day, Spacey posted a link to tumblr page filled with shots of him mugging with fans.

      @john Kevin Spacey is NOT the actor in The Blacklist,, James Spader is..
      you have been cheering for the wrong guy..

      @john Ironically, you're as obtuse as Rob Ford is.

    how would it help Spacey to let a crackhead have his pic taken with him?
    Ford was only on that show for one reason only to be made fun of America TV.

      @ABH If it is me.. I would charge Kevin Spacey a fee to take picture with me.... taking a picture with actor/actresses, is a dime a dozen..

    Someone please tell me what value has this comment added to the city of Toronto. It's all noise.
  5. Warren posted on 03/14/2014 01:46 PM
    lol. no value. I concur. All we have is a Mayor who has managed to embarrass our great city taking it into the world news to see. By the way, the Gardiner is still an issue, The PanAm games traffic is still unresolved, etc.. Jimmy was right - if he can't remember things, how can he even run this city? People of High Park bought homes there for what was supposed to be infrastructure u

      @Warren Please explain your tired old cliche about us being embarrassed by Ford. I am not embarrassed. Nothing no matter how bad that he could ever possibly do does not reflect on me...hence no possibility of embarrassment. Please try to use your own thinking when posting a comment, and not use the media's cliches which have no merit.

    ...construction under way set up by David Miller which Ford cancelled. Result: no infrastructure plus more debt as we had to pay the Contractor more money for the cancellation. That's tax payer's money down the drain...for what...weed?

    Not sure where Warren was going but am guessing its the whole High Park thing. people moved there as construction was on their way as developed by David Miller. This project was cancelled by Rob Ford which resulted to a big debt as we had to pay the contractors for the cancellation. More money down the drain for no work done.

    I don't value people based on their willingness to have a picture taken with anyone, including myself and my pet dog. I'm certain there are more valuable things to do.

    Just another situation showing why Doug is Rob's keeper, since Rob doesn't know his a s s from a hole in the ground. Rob has probably watched tons of movies, but can't remember a single one through the haze of his drunken stupors. Idiot.

      @Townie "Rob has probably watched tons of movies, but can't remember a single one through the haze of his drunken stupors. Idiot." ...you have never been in one, hypocrite?

      Yes, your reply is that of an idiot. Like all Ford Haters Club members, you spout off at your mouth (the very thing you say Mr. Ford does). How do you know Rob watches movies? Spare us your vindictive personality in the future if you are going to post comments without merit. THINK BEFORE PUTTING YOUR FINGERS TO THE KEYBOARD.

      @Mark7 If you are going to call Rob Ford an idiot because of drunken stupors , make sure to add ALL drinkers.

      Only "idiots" would drink alcohol to begin with. If you would do some research, you would find that this drug is one of the most physically damaging to the body. I find it very sad to see the masses who refuse to go to a venue if alcohol is not served. They cannot enjoy life without this drug. So glad I have not this affliction to drink liquid poison. I actually enjoy life.

    Rob Ford will probably wind up running someone over soon he doesn't know because he's too wasted on the roads.
    with each passing day the brothers are slowly becoming yesterday's news.
    1. Mark7 posted on 03/15/2014 01:20 PM
      @AC FORD MORE YEARS...deal with the fact. The best mayor we have had in decades yet the masses have been brainwashed into hatred. What a sad bunch the Ford Haters Club members actually are. You all judge (judge not, lest ye be judged). I cannot wait for all of you have to answer for your sins, and for being hypocrites. Yahshua despises it!

      To the atheists...you better hope there is not a maker because the very actions you take against Rob Ford go contrary to Him.

      @brian Mark. Are you really that out to lunch? And if you are bringing religion into this, do you think Mr Ford is a really good role model for your kids? Wait, don't answer that. Because I am sure you think he is. Good luck with this though. haha.

      ALL who support Ford, and buy into his crap, lies and buffoonery, really crack me up.

      But the thing is, he is going down. Just wait. Your hero, this guy you look up to, has been up to more than any of us really know, Wait. I cannot wait to see him in handcuffs.

      Will be so funny.

      @Edwin If you are a parent, you make the same mistake that many parents these days make. The role model should be YOU, not anyone else, or you are not parenting properly. This is what parents do now. They look to others to "role model" their kids. Please lose this tired old media made cliche.

      It is I who should be asking if you are for real, for crying out loud!.

      ps...Yes by the hard work effort he puts in, he IS a good role model for kids. He was voted in to work for us, not have his PRIVATE life scrutinized.

    Mark is clearly emotional and rants against facts. Now that's sad to see one who seems to be quite iintelligent to have been manipulated based on "feelings" not facts. Fact is how much debt is Toronto in right now that shouldn't be? Kimmel was right when he said if he can't remember......how does this man believe he can run this great city. Yes he runs this city. He's running this is city in debt.
    1. Mark7 posted on 03/16/2014 01:07 PM
      @Peter Although you were gracious in your comment about me, I disagree that I have been manipulated.

      How can Rob fix all the lefties corruption in one term? Heck, they wanted his neck from day one as mayor. Of course I do not agree with what he has admitted to, being proper, but STILL his track record of doing what he said he would do goes towards his favour. He is the first mayor I can recall in my 50 years on earth to have done it. This is why so many refuse to let their support go for Rob.

      @Mark7 Careful, I hope you have examples of "lefties" corruption...all of the documented corruption in Toronto have been the " righties", especially Rob Ford.

      Think before you libel

      @Peter With a statement like that you are either trolling, or it is tongue in cheek humor. lol
    4. Mark7 posted on 03/16/2014 03:04 PM
      @Mark7 The perfect example of lefties' corruption is the fact that the majority of mayors have been lefties. Yet people say Rob has caused our financial ruin instead. It is quite comical that some actually cannot fathom this truth.
