'I've Hurt People,' Trudeau Acknowledges in Presser About Blackface Photos

"This is something I deeply, deeply regret," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared during a press conference on Thursday in Winnipeg, Canada addressing his brownface and blackface controversy.

"Darkening your face is always unacceptable because of the racist history" connected with it.

"I've hurt people who thought I was an ally," he acknowledged.

A reporter at the presser referred to Trudeau's costumes as "makeup." But, to Trudeau's credit, he corrected the journalist, calling it what it was, "blackface."

Media found three instances of Trudeau wearing brownface or blackface. The first being his decision to dress up as Aladdin at an "Arabian Nights"-themed party by putting on brownface during his tenure as a teacher at West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver in 2001. 

The second was a video of him dressed in blackface for a performance of "Day-O" at a high school talent show.

Then, Global News found another video of Trudeau wearing blackface. The Liberal Party again confirmed that that was their guy.

Trudeau addressed the first two images on Wednesday night, acknowledging he made two mistakes, and that he was sorry.

"I shouldn't have done that," he said.

Pundits have noted that the prime minister's humble apology is miles away from how Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam responded to his own controversy. The latter has failed to acknowledge whether he was even in a racist yearbook photo.
