Toronto — Kevin Spacey on Saturday tweeted a Photoshopped image of himself between Toronto mayor Rob Ford and his brother in response to the siblings' criticism that he won't take photos with them.

Rob and Doug Ford complained earlier this week that they were told they could not have their picture taken with the actor when Spacey and Rob Ford appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Mar 2.

The embattled mayor said he wouldn't know Spacey "if I ran over him." Ford's brother called the actor "an arrogant SOB." The pair made the comments on their show on YouTube named after the mayor's supporters.

Along with the photo he tweeted, Spacey said:

During Spacey's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor cracked several jokes at the mayor's expense when Spacey appeared after a brief cameo by Ford.

"That's the first time I've had to follow a Ford," Spacey quipped. "And one that was so banged up."

When Kimmel thanked Spacey for sharing a dressing room with the mayor, Spacey responded, "Well, he threw up all over it, but those are the chances you take."

Ford has been under great pressure to resign since he admitted smoking crack last year, and several videos have emerged that showed him seemingly drunk or high. His antics have made him the target of late-night television comedians as well as embarrassed Canadians. City Council stripped him of many of his powers but does not have the authority to remove him.

Undaunted, Ford has vowed to run for re-election this fall.
