Social media raises eyebrow at Trudeau - then lowers it

The latest Justin Trudeau meme is not about his love of pandas, his dance moves or his yoga prowess - it is instead about his bushy eyebrows.A grainy video of the Canada PM taken at the G7 summit prompted online speculation over the weekend as to whether Mr Trudeau wears fake eyebrows.Internet sleuths quickly debunked the viral conspiracy theory. "Eyebrow gate" emerged just as US President Donald Trump criticised Mr Trudeau for being "meek and mild".A satirical Twitter handle titled "Trudeau's eyebrows" was created on 9 June to poke fun at the prime minister and his "fake" eyebrows. Soon, many others on social media were sharing the footage in question.

Just so you know, yes it's true. Justin Trudeau wears fake eyebrows and takes really good care of us most of the time. But he's really intimidated by @realDonaldTrump, and the sweat loosened the glue that keeps us attached. No biggie— Trudeau's Eyebrows (@TrudeausEyebro1) June 10, 2018

"[He] acted so meek and mild," Mr Trump wrote. "Very dishonest and weak."Mr Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over US tariffs on steel and aluminium.Social media quickly divided into two camps: eyebrow "truthers" and eyebrow "sceptics". Sceptical internet sleuths investigated, concluding that the poor-quality footage simply highlighted Mr Trudeau's naturally thick and patchy eyebrows.

While a fake eyebrow scandal would rule, the photographic record shows Justin Trudeau's left eyebrow grows thicker on the bottom along the supraorbital ridge. A streak of thinner hair parts upward closer to the glabella. This is why it can look like a fake eyebrow is falling off.— Sean Craig (@sdbcraig) June 10, 2018
