Photo shows Justin Trudeau wearing brownface at 2001 party

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wore brownface at an “Arabian Nights”-themed party 18 years ago, according to a photograph obtained by Time.

Trudeau is seen wearing the brown makeup at a party at a private school where he was teaching in 2001, according to Time.

The prime minister apologized after the photos were published by Time

Trudeau admitted he wore the makeup while dressing up as Aladdin at an end-of-year gala while teaching in Vancouver, speaking to to reporters from an airplane in Halifax Wednesday evening.

“I shouldn’t have done it, I should have known better, but I didn’t,” he said. “And I’m really sorry.”…

Zita Astravas, the media relations lead of Trudeau’s Liberal Party of Canada, confirmed to Time that the prime minister is in the photo.

Astravas told Time that Trudeau is planning to address the photo later Wednesday evening.

The scandal emerged weeks after Trudeau launched his reelection campaign.

Will this end his political career?
