Rob Ford hezza night of confusion on Twitter

Posted by Aubrey Jax / December 5, 2013

HezzaAccording to local drug dealers, Rob Ford is into hezza. That's heroin. Or at least we're pretty sure it is. Drug dealers from low income neighbourhoods call heroin "hezza" either because they think it might help them evade police (who seem to know what it means - thanks a lot, whoever wrote this Urban Dictionary entry) or because it takes less time to say and they're busy hustling. Journalists were pretty over the moon when this news broke last night, seemingly because they learned a new word, and/or can't deal with the jarring juxtaposition between "Mayor of Toronto" and "hezza." Here's a slice of what went down on Twitter - where the media indulged in a little schadenFord - last night.

T-minus 68 minutes (when Passions is done) until the resident stay at home mom chimes in defending Robbie boy for using yet another chemical drug. Hopefully her kids don't take after her.

RoFo was going to the drug buffet! Crack, H, Coke, Weed, Booze, etc. I'm almost surprised he wasn't tripping balls on acid while being interviewed buy CP24 or sumn.

Well ... he still has until October.

You have plenty of time to dig yourself into a bigger ditch, Robbie.

I can already hear the next apology 'I was so high on crack that I didn't know that I was doing heroin…we've all been there haven't we?'

NON NEWS. come on people were talking about $5000 and a used car. Wynne is acting all that when she F'd us out of a BILLION dollars, did I say a BILLION because I meant a BILLION. Lets not have the whole country focus on Toronto and $5000 and a used car.

LETS FOCUS ON THE WYNNE OUTRAGE. SHE HAS GOT TO GO! ENOUGH OF THIS GARBAGE ALREADY! WYNNE OUT! WYNNE OUT!

Yo Robbie, this is Canada you dickhead. We already pay for our healthcare, through our taxes. If you love the USA so much why don't you get the fuck outta here we've had enough of your bullshit up here. You "support" two tier health care? Fuck you, leave now and see how the Americans treat you. Unfortunately for us in Canada we have a two tier justice system. One for us, and one for the rich elite bastards like you, who cry poor boy cause you're just a Ecoke kid all scrubby and all. Karma.

All the ford "supporters", would like you to look the other way, at some other issue that suits them. While the mayor of Toronto, who clearly has cocaine bloat, rages against left wing attacks, while new rumours of heroine use and extortion and prostitution and drug gangs, etc etc etc abound. Toronto deserves this. By allowing people whose only concern, is about money to run the show. Not people, families, infrastructure, community nothing. Just money. Well done you morons.

There is ongoing investigation concerning the gas plant cancellation. Dalton McGunity was involved and has resigned over, so much more integrity then Rob Ford. There is not proven evidence that Kathleen Wynne was involved. When and if there is I am sure will show the integrity and do the right right thing, unlike Rob Ford.
What you and many others fail to see The Liberals were doing the will of the peoepl, something they were democratically elected to do. The people in those riding did not want the gas plants, They ran with as part of their platform and delivered. Now we see how much democracy can cost us, but that is price we pay to be involved.
Time to suck it up and move on. Those plans were gone regardless of who won. Tim Hudak is being very dishonest in this.
Rob Ford has wasted Millions of 'taxpayers' dollars catering to special interest groups and voices in his head, The true cost to the city continues to rise. Rob Fords integrity factor is 0 and he has tried circumvented democracy.

Ha! That's hilarious...and probably exactly what he'll say.

This would be a good place to end the era of privileged WASP mayors. There has never even been a Catholic mayor of Toronto, let alone Black, Asian, etc.

I think Rob Ford has more integrity for sticking around to face the music of his actions, he's the one accountable and he's the one facing it.

Does it not piss you off that McGuinty is up at his cottage and doesn't have to face any of it? A simple resignation and your off the hook? Imagine if all crimes were let off that east.

*APPLAUS* Rob Ford should run for mayor again. He's single handedly smoking ALL the city's crack, sniffing up ALL the cocaine and jabbing his arms with heroin. Not to mention eating ALL the greasy, grimy fast-food and drinking enough vodka to make the Russians blush. Now all we need his for his half-wit older bro to admit being a hash-head and Toronto can safely re-elect these two back for another 4 years of antics, lies, bullying and more hooliganism.
