Exclusive: Video shows Trudeau in blackface in 3rd instance of racist makeup Global News has obtained video showing Liberal leader Justin Trudeau in blackface, the third instance of racist dress to come to light in 12 hours. It’s not clear when or where the video was taken, but the video, obtained exclusively by Global News, shows Trudeau covered in what appears to be dark makeup and raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces. He's wearing a white T-shirt, and his jeans are ripped at the knees. It appears as though his arms and legs are covered in makeup as well.

Another photo of Trudeau in dark makeup at a high school talent show has since emerged, which the Liberal campaign confirmed was of the Liberal leader. WATCH BELOW: Federal Election 2019: Can Trudeau campaign survive racist makeup controversy ?

OTTAWA — A federal Liberal candidate in B.C. says his campaign signs were vandalized in an attempt to tie his campaign to recently surfaced racist images of the prime minister in blackface.

Stephen Fuhr told HuffPost Canada Thursday that his face was coloured in — with the exception of his mouth and eyes — with thick, black marker. “All parties experience some sort of vandalism. It just kind of goes with the punches,” he said. “This was a little different situation.”

He claimed vandals are trying to smear his campaign by linking him to the current controversy embroiling Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“They didn’t knock the sign over or take it out or rip it in half. They’re trying to tie my efforts in this community to the larger conversation that’s happening in the nation right now, and quite frankly, in the world,” said the Liberal incumbent.

The graffiti was found on six signs in the riding of Kelowna—Lake Country in Kelowna. Fuhr called the graffiti “sad and unfortunate.”

Since that initial brownface photo surfaced, another picture of Trudeau wearing blackface and donning an afro emerged. He had told reporters earlier that he sang the Harry Belafonte classic “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)”at a high school show and wore “makeup.”

Speaking to reporters in Winnipeg, Trudeau admitted that he did not disclose the photos or video to staff. He said he was “embarrassed” and “didn’t want to talk about it with anyone.”

He blamed “layers of privilege” as a reason for his failure to recognize brownface and blackface as offensive earlier.

It wasn’t until he started representing the Montreal riding of Papineau when he realized that wearing dark makeup to portray oneself as a caricature of a non-white person is racist, he said.

Trudeau was elected to represent the Quebec riding in the House of Commons in 2008.

The Liberal leader was apologetic again Thursday, saying he had “difficult conversations” with his children about the controversy.

“The fact is I didn’t understand how hurtful this is to people who live with discrimination every single day. I have always acknowledged that I come from a place of privilege — but I now need to acknowledge that that comes with a massive blind spot.″

Source of Trudeau 'brownface' photo says only motive was public's right to know .
OTTAWA — The source of the first public photo of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in brownface says his sole motivation in providing the image to Time was his belief the public needed to see it. Michael Adamson says he has never been a member of a political party and did not receive any payment for providing the photograph to the American magazine. Adamson says in a written statement that he was aware of gossip surrounding the existence of the photograph because of his position as "a past member of the (West Point Grey Academy) community." Because of that association, he was able to provide a copy of the school yearbook to the Time reporter, Adamson says.
