Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has made another on-camera gaffe and this one looks like it hurt.
The controversial civic leader smashed his face into a TV camera after exiting a meeting at City Hall on Monday.
Ford was rushing out of an executive committee meeting room during a break when he walked directly into a City TV cameraman who had backed into a cement pillar, The Toronto Sun reports.
“Ah f--- man. Holy Christ,” he said as he grabbed his eye. “Holy. Guys, have some respect. You just hit me in the face with a camera.”
CityNews reports that their cameraman was pinned against a wall and could not move out of the way. Ford was apparently speaking to reporters about the casino debate.
The Sun, which also posted an animated GIF of the collision, reports that Ford typically runs out of committee meetings at City Hall, forcing reporters to chase him.
Ford was apparently fine.
In November, a video of the Toronto mayor falling at a Grey Cup press event quickly went viral.
"I've got a lot of padding," he joked at the time.
About a year ago, Ford nearly fell off a scale and twisted his ankle at the final, public weigh-in for his ‘Cut the Waist’ challenge.
