As most people know by now, things at the G7 Summit last week got pretty heated. Canada is now in the midst of a weird trade war with the US and Donald Trump keeps going in on our Prime Minister.
But another bit of conspiracy that is circulating from the summit is whether or not Justin Trudeau has fake eyebrows. The theory comes from this video where Justin's left brow seems to be slipping.
Justin Trudeau’s left eyebrow detached after meeting Trump — so what? These days, who doesn’t wear fake eyebrows? pic.twitter.com/EZTeYllCrH— Mike (@Doranimated) 10 June 2018
The incident took place during a talk Trudeau gave with French leader, Emmanuel Marcon. As he is speaking his eyebrow appears to fall below his actual brow bone and sit at a weird angle.
There are a number of theories and reasons for this happening. It could just be shadows, lighting, or maybe is eyebrows are honestly fake and literally fell off his face. Majority of people on the internet are convinced it's that last theory that Trudeau's eyebrows are in fact fake.
The incident has lead to what the internet is calling Eyebrowgate. The internet has not disappointed in their responses either. Many making jokes that having to deal with President Trump caused Trudeau to sweat his eyebrows right off.
A mock Twitter account called Trudeau's Eyebrows has even popped up online.
Just so you know, yes it's true. Justin Trudeau wears fake eyebrows and takes really good care of us most of the time. But he's really intimidated by @realDonaldTrump, and the sweat loosened the glue that keeps us attached. No biggie— Trudeau's Eyebrows (@TrudeausEyebro1) 10 June 2018
Now while all the speculation has been hilarious, there are two online geniuses that debunked eyebrow gate in some seriously accurate tweets. @iD4RO and @cdbcraig let the world know that no Justin Trudeau wasn't wearing fake brows but instead has normal brows that were subjected to poor lighting that caused a shadow which made it appear that his eyebrows are falling off.
I can't believe this has to be said, but Justin Trudeau obviously didn't have a "fake eyebrow" falling off during his press conference with Emmanuel Macron.— ishmael n. daro (@iD4RO) June 10, 2018
It's a trick of the light. When looking down, the shadow makes his left brow look weird. When looking up, it looks normal pic.twitter.com/Xnlaol0MvR
While a fake eyebrow scandal would rule, the photographic record shows Justin Trudeau's left eyebrow grows thicker on the bottom along the supraorbital ridge. A streak of thinner hair parts upward closer to the glabella. This is why it can look like a fake eyebrow is falling off. pic.twitter.com/yL7QbAk2mN— Sean Craig (@sdbcraig) June 10, 2018
So sadly all the fanfare around Trudeau's brows have been #fakenews. Butin a time of trade wars, tariffs, and scary economic futures, it's nice that there is something we can genuinely laugh at from the G7 summit.
