Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau maybe conversant on India’s culture, but his attempt to be accepting of cultures was mocked.
It seems like Justin’s outfit came across like he was wearing a costume, with people from India calling it “Fake And Annoying.”
This is the first time I noticed just how awkward Justin Trudeau’s attempts at being socially acceptable looks very superficial.
From the Daily Mail:
Justin Trudeau has been ridiculed on social media by Indians for his ‘tacky’ and over the top outfit choices while on his first visit to their nation as Prime Minister.
While many praised his clothing during the first two days of his trip, patience was wearing thin by the time he attended a Bollywood gala on Tuesday night, before the tide turned against him on Wednesday.
Ministers, authors, journalists and ordinary Indians lined up to mock him on Wednesday, saying his wardrobe was ‘fake and annoying’.
Perhaps taking note of the criticism, the Canadian leader donned a suit on Thursday as he visited Jama Masjid, one of India’s largest mosques.
Some say Prime Minister Trudeau is happiest when he is virtual signaling to the masses.
Social media was a blaze of criticism.
“Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now? Also FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.” – @OmarAbdullah
“This kinda feels like the white man is back again and trying to patronize the natives initially, with his fake awe for the local customs… can someone tell this Canadian dude that Indians have moved on. God.. even I don’t have so many kurtas or so many kids.” – @saran_tweet
“Is it just me who’s finding Justin Trudeau’s fancy dress display fake and annoying?”
“Who advised Justin Trudeau to dress like a bridegroom at the Bombay event? Only a horse and sehra seemed to be missing.” – @shunalishroff
“Bro Golden Temple is not at the airport, have some chill…” – @KabirTaneja
