Earlier this year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau found himself in some pretty hot water when several old pictures of him wearing blackface resurfaced on the internet. After widespread global criticism and a lot of profuse apologizing from Trudeau, it seems nobody has forgotten the Prime Minister’s blackface scandal as Justin Trudeau in blackface could actually become a popular halloween costume.\nBack in September, just as the federal election campaigning was getting into full swing, several photos and a video of Justin Trudeau wearing blackface emerged. While the images dated from as far back as the 1990s, the blackface “fancy dress” costumes Trudeau was wearing caused widespread condemnation, with many branding the Prime Minister as racist.\nFast-forward a month, and given that Canadians re-elected Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister, you might think that he’d been somewhat forgiven for his blackface scandal. However, it seems that some people are not prepared to let Trudeau forget about his poor taste in costumes, by dressing up as him in blackface for Halloween.\nSince the Trudeau blackface scandal emerged, there have been several Twitter users who have shared the idea of a Trudeau-blackface Halloween outfit, although it is not clear if it’s simply a joke or just a terrible idea for a costume.\nView this post on Instagram #TBT: Speech prep on Tuesday.

Level of stupidity: shocking.— a mars (@AleMars22) October 23, 2019\nThis is the second time in two days that Trudeau’s blackface scandal has come back to haunt him on Twitter.\nYesterday, when Bed, Bath and Beyond announced the recall of their “blackface” pumpkins, several people took to social media to rename the offensive product “Trudeau pumpkins.”\nWhat I did was hurtful to people who live with intolerance and discrimination every day. I recognize that, and I take full responsibility for it. I know that I let a lot of people down with that choice, and I am deeply sorry. pic.twitter.com/gLetjs6xAa— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) September 19, 2019\nIf you were considering painting your face to create a “Justin Trudeau blackface” costume, just put this on your Halloween list of “bad ideas,” and maybe try something a bit less offensive.\nSexy Beyond Meat Burger Halloween costume, anyone?\nThere are stories everywhere.
