Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Complains About Alleged Snub by TV Star Backstage at 'Kimmel' LA Times
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is complaining that an actor who was appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” the same night Ford and his brother were on snubbed them backstage. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that Ford made the complaint about two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey.
Spacey, who stars in the acclaimed Netflix series "House of Cards," apparently didn’t want to mingle or have photos taken with people backstage, the story notes. Ford’s brother Doug was especially offended, according to what the brothers said on their YouTube show, “Ford Nation.”
"In my opinion, he's an arrogant SOB," Doug said. "Any actor that makes a living off the people that watch his shows ... . He wouldn't take a picture with anyone? We were told you can't take a picture and you can't speak to him. Who does this character think he is? Does he think he's God? That he's up there? That no common folk can take a picture with him?"
Rob Ford, for his part, said he wouldn’t recognize the actor “if I ran him over.”
