The House of Cards star tweeted a photoshopped image of himself sitting between embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, Doug Ford, after the brothers took jibes at him on their YouTube show, Ford Nation, on Friday. The Fords complained that they weren't allowed to take photos with Spacey when all three visited Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this month.
"When did Mayor Ford start doing what people tell him to do?" Spacey tweeted. "All you had to do was ask, guys. Here's your pic."

Rob Ford said on Ford Nation that he "wouldn’t know [Spacey] if I ran him over,” while Doug Ford called the actor an "arrogant SOB."
“Any actor that makes his living off the people who watch his shows, you can’t take a picture with him?" Doug, a Toronto city councilor, continued. "We were told you can’t take a picture, and you can’t speak to him. Who does this character think he is?”
Spacey, who followed Rob Ford on Kimmel's show, joked that the mayor had thrown up all over their shared dressing room.
"But those are the chances you take," he said.
