Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared to be losing an eyebrow when speaking with reporters on Thursday at the G7 Summit.
French President Emmanuel Macron and Trudeau addressed reporters at the summit, and Trudeau trashed the United States for implementing new metal tariffs on U.S. allies. However, Twitter users pointed out that during his screed it looked like he may have been losing a fake eyebrow.

The original video on the Canadian public access channel, CPAC, showed that the weird eyebrow situation was, in fact, real.
I don’t like spreading fake news so I wanted to check the source material. It checks out. Look at 27:25 here on CPAC. The only thing that’s fake may be the eyebrows. #EyebrowGate https://t.co/BVEhcL0Xkl

It is unclear if he was simply suffering from bad lighting or just abnormally bushy eyebrows, but Twitter ran rampant with speculation.

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

I will never forgive Twitter for making me Google “Justin Trudeau eyebrows” at 2 a.m.

I thought that was video manipulation to make fun of him however the same eyebrow weirdness is also going on in this photo posted by Trudeau cheerleaders at Global News. https://t.co/as380vRsfZ

Other photos of Trudeau from different events show a similar eyebrow situation, so it’s quite likely he just has naturally full brows.
President Trump hit back at Trudeau after leaving the G7 summit early to attend a meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un in Singapore. Trump called Trudeau “very dishonest and weak” and accused him of making false statements about tariffs between U.S. and Canada.
