Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seemed to be losing an eyebrow when speaking with reporters at the G7 Summit on Thursday.
Twitter went into meltdown trying to figure out whether Trudeau was wearing fake eyebrows during a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.
“Eyebrow gate” started just after US President Donald Trump criticized Mr Trudeau for being “meek and mild”.
Luckily Trudeau’s eyebrows have their own twitter account, so they were able to ‘explain’ what happened.
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

RT reports: The incident has led to accusations that Trudeau is buffing up his eyebrows with a couple of stick-on substitutes. While it’s unclear whether the eyebrow is actually falling or if it’s a trick of the light, the internet has responded with expected amounts of mirth and memes to mercilessly mock the Canadian politician.

Some even think it’s possible that Trudeau’s unglued brow could be the first real faux pas in a public life perfectly manicured with eye-catching socks and jogging photobombs.
