Ford is a common last name, but it's an unfortunate name to have when you're trying to sell good cars and there's crack-buying mayor Rob Ford stealing all of the headlines. So Ford Motor Company is wasting no time in preventing their iconic images being associated with the embattled Toronto official.
Craig Trudell from Bloomberg reports that the automaker has asked that the use of the Ford script and blue oval be stopped from use on any products showing support for Mayor Ford, who, if you haven't heard, finally admitted to buying and smoking crack.
According to the National Post, there are a whole bunch of Rob Ford supporters willing to spend their money on things like Bobbleheads and T-shirts that show support for Ford. Err... Rob Ford. See, this is confusing.
Don't smoke crack.
