In a new video posted on YouTube Tuesday, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford appears to be intoxicated at a fast-food restaurant while talking in a Jamaican accent and repeating a Jamaican curse word.
Update: When questioned by reporters, Rob Ford admitted he was drinking with friends last night, but said he hadn’t used other drugs.
Ford said that it shouldn’t concern anyone because it was on his “own time.”
“What I do with my personal life and my personal friends, that’s up to me,” he told reporters, according to an audio clip from the Toronto Star.
Ford added that he didn’t think what he said was offensive.
“I said I was there, I had met some friends. If I speak that way that’s how I speak with some of my friends,” Ford said. “I don’t think it’s discriminative at all.”
