Reaction to Justin Trudeau brownface photo

Justin Trudeau has apologized after a 2001 photo of him wearing brownface surfaced during the second week of his campaign for re-election.

“I shouldn’t have done that,” he said while speaking to reporters Wednesday evening. “I should have known better but I didn’t and I’m really sorry.”

Time magazine published a yearbook photo from 2001 of the Liberal leader in dark makeup while wearing a turban.
