Earlier in the week, Chelsea Lately mistakenly displayed a photo of Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson while discussing Sochi mayor Anatoly Pakhomov and his claim that there are no gay people in the 2014 Olympic host city of Sochi, Russia.

On a subsequent show later in the week, the American late night talk show host issued an apology to our LGBT-friendly Vancouver mayor. “Turns out the mayor of Vancouver actually loves gay guys,” she said.

While making an effort to acknowledge and correct her mistake by showing an accurate photo of the real Sochi mayor, Handler instead showed a photo of Rob Ford.

The Toronto mayor is in Vancouver this weekend for personal matters. Ford arrived on Friday morning, but it didn’t take long for the controversial mayor to get in trouble again. After leaving a party at a Coquitlam pub last night, he was ticketed by RCMP for jaywalking.
