Disgraced Canadian Rob Ford reached out to Toronto’s favorite son, Justin Bieber after the pop star was charged with criminal assault.

According to reports, Bieber allegedly hit a limo driver in the back of the head several times on Dec. 29th after he and his entourage attended a Maple Leafs game.  Police were called to the scene and charges were pressed against the 19-year-old.

Ford, who’s admitted to smoking crack in the past and did this once, came to Bieber’s defense on D.C.’s 106.7 earlier today.

“Well, you know what, he’s a young guy,” Ford said when one of “The Sports Junkies” DJs called Bieber “Canada’s worst export.”

“At 19 years old, I wish I was as successful as he was,” Ford added.  “He’s 19 years old, guys. Think back to when you were 19.”
