Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has apologized after a photo surfaced of him wearing a brown face at a party in 2001.
Trudeau spoke to reporters on Wednesday, after Time Magazine published the image.
He said “I was dressed up as Aladdin went for a gala where the theme was Arabian Nights. I take responsibility for my decision to do that. I should not have done it. I should have known better. it was something that I didn’t think was racist at the time. But now I recognize it was something racist to do and I am deeply sorry.”
Trudeau is currently on the campaign trail before Canadian Federal Election. The image could undermine the chances for re-election with less than five weeks to go before polls open
