It's fair to say that Doug Ford as Ontario's Premier has been at least controversial and as with any politician not everyone agrees with his decisions. But now some Ontarians are taking it one step further and calling Doug Ford corrupt. In fact, so many people are saying it that it's actually trending on Twitter.\nSpecifically, the trend going around Twitter right now is #FordCorruptAF and it's been used in a number of contexts to describe the Ford Family's history with drug dealing, the government's budget cuts, and a number of Doug Ford's decisions since taking office less than one year ago.\nThe origin of the trend is actually related to Doug Ford and Minister Lisa McLeod's cuts and changes to autism funding. The trending hashtag started yesterday after it was revealed that Doug Ford had left a voicemail for an Ontario resident that has been described as "threatening."\nGlobal reported yesterday that Michael Cole, a parent of two children with autism, sent the premier a text message. He told Global that he was angry after the changes to autism funding a couple of months ago and finally sent Ford a text message this week saying all he gave them was corruption.\nIn response to Cole's message, Ford actually left a voicemail for Michael. Cole shared the audio of the message, which he says is threatening on his twitter. In the clip, the premier says "But Michael, you got to be very, very careful when you tell someone that they’re corrupt. Very, very, very careful. OK, my friend? I’ll talk to you later.”\nAnd here is our Premier Douglas Robert Ford (@fordnation).I'm sorry but this sounds really threatening, I'm not clear what I've done that could constitute a threat since it's pretty demonstrable that there is something very corrupt in QP, none the less.https://t.co/culpbINhP5— Michael Cole 🇨🇦 (@michaeljacole) May 24, 2019\nIn response to this story, one Twitter user, Mike Gibbs, who is former media relations for Public Health Ontario, sent out several tweets calling out Ford over the voicemail. Eventually, those tweets evolved to include the hashtag #FordCorruptAF and the trend has blown up from there.\nWe need to get #FordCorruptAF trending.Do your magic twitterverse.#onpoli— Mike Gibbs 🏳️🌈 (@Mikeggibbs) May 24, 2019\nBut seriously it is terrifying that our premier is basically a mafiaso.And he leaves threatening voicemails for citizens who offend him. Our *entire govt* is being held hostage to the whims of his shadowy business clique. #FordCorruptAF #CorruptPremier#onpoli pic.twitter.com/PUilque1ua— Mike Gibbs 🏳️🌈 (@Mikeggibbs) May 24, 2019\nDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD IS CORRUPTDOUG FORD US CORRUPT#FordCorruptAF #CorruptPremier#onpoli pic.twitter.com/YDaOL1i0FO— Mike Gibbs 🏳️🌈 (@Mikeggibbs) May 24, 2019\nMike Gibbs isn't the only one using this hashtag. Several other Ontarians have jumped on the #FordCorruptAF train as well.\nMy family went to school with the three Ford stooges. They were drug dealers, drug users, and bullies. They were&are horrible people. Ontario literally elected someone’s highschool bully into office. And it seems he hasn’t stopped being a bully as Premier either. #FordCorruptAF— Sara DG (@saramcguard) May 25, 2019\nGET IT TRENDING #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF #FordCorruptAF— Rob Gill (@vote4robgill) May 25, 2019\n#FordCorruptAF Picking two of the worst ministers @MacLeodLisa and @LisaThompsonMPP to represent important files in the government.

You can't intimidate @michaeljacole and those who speakout on your #FordCorruptAF. #ONpoli #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/kr2DPatS86— vectorxy (@vectorxy) May 25, 2019\nIn an interview with Narcity, Gibbs explained his motivation to create the now trending hashtag. He explained that he has been active online supporting parents in Ontario's autism community so hearing about Ford's voicemail made him angry. He said, "That the premier could be so vicious to them hit me in my stomach... I felt in my bones we had to - as many people as possible - stand behind Michael [Cole] so [he] knows he isn't alone. And all autism parents are not alone. The message is really - if you threaten Michael you threaten 'all of us'."\nGibbs also told Narcity that he is encouraged by the support that his hashtag and his message has received. "I think that this story is sparking people to think about corruption and this [government] which is happening in broad daylight before our eyes," he said. "It's also cool how during dark times like this, we find like cause with other groups and support each other."
