Justin Bieber defended by Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

Toronto’s favorite black sheep, Mayor Rob Ford, is rising to the defense of fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, who has also been in the headlines for the wrong reasons.

Bieber was charged with assault Wednesday for allegedly hitting a Toronto limousine driver several times in the back of the head in an incident last month. The news broke a few hours after the teenage pop star’s attorney entered a separate not guilty plea in Florida to drunken driving and other charges.

Ford, who has admitted smoking crack while in a drunken stupor and is being sued for supposedly orchestrating the jailhouse beating of his sister’s ex-boyfriend, noted that Bieber is only 19 and defended him when a host on the Washington, D.C.-based radio show “The Sports Junkies” called Bieber “Canada’s worst export.”

“Well, you know what, he’s a young guy,” Ford said Thursday. “At 19 years old, I wish I was as successful as he was. He’s 19 years old, guys. Think back to when you were 19.”
