The Toronto Sun newspaper used its front page Wednesday to mock Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s admission that he has smoked crack cocaine. 

The Canadian paper used the headline “Rob Ford: GLOBAL STUPORSTAR,” in reference to Ford’s statement that he smoked crack “probably in one of my drunken stupors.”

Ford announced Wednesday that he would not resign from the mayorship.
