Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in hot water after photos and videos surfaced of him in “brownface.” Now, trolls are deciding to whine about the 2004 film “White Chicks” — trying to act as if it is the same thing.
In case you missed it, a photo of Trudeau surfaced of him in “brownface” as Aladdin when he was 30 years old in 2001. See below:
Another photo surfaced of him in a wig that appears to be an afro. The photo is allegedly from the 1990s, when he was in high school. He was reportedly impersonating Harry Belafonte and singing ‘Day-O’ at a talent show.
Below is another alleged photo:
Trudeau issued an apology, saying, “I shouldn’t have done it. I should have known better, but I didn’t. And I’m really sorry.”
He also added, “I stand here before Canadians as I will throughout this campaign and talk about the work we have to do to make a better country together. And I am going to continue to stay focused on that and continue to work to fight intolerance and discrimination, even though obviously I made a mistake in the past.”
Of course, Twitter had ridiculous comparisons to “white face” and “White Chicks.”
