Toronto Mayor John Tory does not listen to Kanye West, but he is aware of the rapper's wife, model and reality television star Kim Kardashian.

When asked about West, who is performing at the Pan Am Games closing ceremonies, Tory said Wednesday the rapper, who is from Chicago, is a "proud product" of Toronto's music community.

To make amends for his mistake, on Thursday he released a video on his Twitter account of his commute, complete with a Canada hat and West's song Stronger as the soundtrack.

In the video, Tory is reading the latest issue of Rolling Stone, with Kardashian on the cover. "I only know who his wife is," he said Thursday.

At the end of the video, Tory uses the lyrics to Stronger to help create a fun slogan for his work in the city.

The tweet reads, "Yeezus, can't believe I didn't know @KimKardashian's husband wasn't Canadian! #Topoli #KanyeWest," referencing West's last album, Yeezus.
