A new shocking video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has surfaced in which he animatedly screams about killing someone. The Toronto Star purchased the video. After the video went viral on the Internet, Ford told reporters, “When you're in that state ... I hope none of you have ever or will ever be in that state. That's all I can say. Obviously I was extremely, extremely inebriated."
Looking more than ever like Chris Farley's SNL character Matt Foley (best known for living down by the river), Ford swings his arms wildly and curses. He's barely coherent as he screams about an unidentified person: “I’m gonna kill that f–ing guy. I’m telling you, it’s first-degree murder."
He gestures and demonstrates as he screams, “I’ll rip his f–ing throat out. I’ll poke his eyes out. . . . I’ll make sure that motherf–er’s dead,” Ford says as someone secretly videotapes him.
The Star invited Ford and his staff to view the video before posting it online; they declined the invitation.
Ford admitted on Tuesday that he has smoked crack cocaine.
