Canada – Justin Trudeau blackface: Third incident of Canadian PM wearing racist makeup emerges.
Clip released hours after apology for ‘Arabian Nights’ costume.
A video of Justin Trudeau wearing blackface has been released. The clip is the third instance of the Canadian prime minister wearing racist make-up to emerge in the last 24 hours.
The video was first obtained by Global News.
In the footage a young Mr Trudeau can be seen with his face covered in what appears to be dark make-up.
He is dressed in jeans and a t-shirt and proceeds to laugh and stick his tongue out at the camera.
It is unclear when and where the video was filmed.
The prime minister of Canada, who launched his re-election campaign just a week ago, said he should have known better, when asked about the costume.
“I’m p***** off at myself, I’m disappointed in myself,” he told reporters travelling with him on his campaign plane.
