Yearbook photo surfaces of Justin Trudeau in 'brownface' at 2001 costume party

Yearbook photo surfaces of Justin Trudeau in 'brownface' at 2001 costume party
A Liberal spokesman confirmed the photo is of Trudeau, who was expected to speak to reporters about the photo later Wednesday



A photo posted online by TIme with the following caption "Justin Trudeau, now the prime minister of Canada, appears in dark makeup on his face, neck and hands at a 2001 "Arabian Nights"-themed party at the West Point Grey Academy, the private school where he taught."time.com

OTTAWA — A yearbook photo of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau wearing “brownface” makeup at a costume party in 2001 has landed on the federal election campaign.

Time magazine has posted the photo, which it says was published in the yearbook from the West Point Grey Academy, a private school in Vancouver, B.C., where Trudeau worked as a teacher before entering politics.

The report describes the occasion as an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala event. The photo depicts Trudeau wearing a turban and robe, with dark makeup on his hands, face and neck.

Liberal spokesman Cameron Ahmad confirmed the photo is of Trudeau, who was expected to speak to reporters about the photo later tonight.

Who is the real Mr. Trudeau?

“It was a photo taken in 2001 while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the school’s annual dinner which had a costume theme of ”Arabian Nights,“ Ahmad said in an email.

“He attended with friends and colleagues dressed as a character from Aladdin.”

The picture depicts the now-Liberal leader alongside four young women — his hands draped over one of them — in what appear to be cocktail dresses, none dressed as elaborately as Trudeau. The report describes the photo as having been the subject of gossip within the West Point Grey community.

So-called “blackface” images have been a frequent source of controversy in recent years, predominantly in the United States, where last year a number of prominent state politicians were forced to apologize for similar yearbook images that surfaced publicly.

But the image surely represents a crisis moment for Trudeau, whose political brand as Liberal leader and prime minister has been forged by themes of tolerance, inclusivity and racial harmony.

I think he needs to answer for it

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, who was taking part in a town hall meeting when the news broke, said it’s becoming clear that Trudeau’s public persona may not be an accurate reflection of who he is.

“I think he needs to answer for it. I think he’s got to answer the question why he did that and what does that say about what he thinks about people who, because of who they are, because of the colour of their skin, face challenges and barriers and obstacles in their life,” Singh said.

“Who is the real Mr. Trudeau? Is it the one behind closed doors, the one when the cameras are turned off that no one sees?” Singh asked. “Is that the real Mr. Trudeau? Because more and more, it seems like it is.”

The National Council of Canadian Muslims wasted little time calling on Trudeau to explain the “deeply saddening” photo.

“The wearing of blackface/brownface is reprehensible, and hearkens back to a history of racism, slavery, and an Orientalist mythology that is unacceptable,” said executive director Mustafa Farooq.

“While we recognize that people can change and evolve over two decades, it is critical that the prime minister immediately and unequivocally apologize.”

It get's better, the comment boards in Canada are blowing up.....one could also make the connection to Islamaphobia, and the progressive with his hands all over the woman.....

Most would say so what, except the progressives would hang any conservative who appeared in a photo like this.

The scrambling around this one will be amazing to observe. Where's my popcorn when I need it?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is apologizing for wearing brown facial makeup to an “Arabian Nights” party in 2001, saying he should have known better, and he’s asking for the forgiveness of Canadians.

Trudeau also says that in high school, he wore makeup while performing a version of the Harry Belafonte song, “Banana Boat Song (Day-O).”

Just imagine the mobs that would be in the streets if he was conservative.

From the Toronto Star:

"Trudeau held a press conference to address a photo of him wearing brownface during his time as a teacher at a Vancouver private school. “I’ve always been more enthusiastic about costumes than is sometimes appropriate.”


No shit eh.

What in the hell is going on with this blackface shit? I have never, in my life seen anybody in blackface in person. The first time I was exposed to it was watching old Al Jolson videos with my mom, and clearly being told that was from a bygone era and to never consider doing that these days (keep in mind this was at least 30 years ago).

I mean, I'm supposedly from white supremacist fly over country where we all hate people who don't look like us (libturd mind control media tells me this). Yet, I've never once seen shit like this in my life and only from politicians who are the very ones calling ME a racist. I also clearly know it's wrong and to never be done!

This guy is an asshole!

*the gal he's manhandling is pretty hawt though*

Does anyone think Trudo is a racist? I don't think anyone does think that so this story will go nowhere. It's just more crazy ppl trying to attack a liberal or libtard.

Yes if a republican did this it's much worse because republicans are much more closely associated to being a racist especially if they had said or did other questionable things in the past.

This guy is always being made fun of for being too nice to minorities and immigrants but now suddenly republicans want to say he's a racist lol. Make up your mind which one is he?

Oh yea you have no principles, you will do or say anything to get a "win" lol. Add this to the list if you guys would stick to some kind of principle maybee even 1 thing u say would stick.

Also I like the irony of that grumpy guy who only shit talks Muslim ppl with posts, cares enough to put this up. You can't make this stuff up.

I am a black man from the south whose parents lived through the Jim Crow era. You have no idea of what you are talking about. You couldn't be more wrong if you tried.

Walk away from this one.
