Why did the Toronto Star just remove a high-quality Trudeau blackface video?

For now, there is no answer, and although The Star has blocked their copy, a version has already dropped on social media.

As the big tech tyrants tighten their grip, join us for more free speech at Parler—the anti-censorship social media platform.

Update: After seven hours, the Star has finally made the video available to the public.


Earlier today, the Toronto Star published an article “explaining” the backstory behind Justin Trudeau’s blackface situation.

The video is of him in blackface head to toe, with a wig on.

While the piece debunks one claim that Trudeau had a shirt with bananas on (he did not, it was toucans), it raised another serious question.

Why did the Toronto Star put up just the high-quality photo of the toucans, but then remove the high-quality video showing the entire event?

The Star did not immediately respond to request for comment. The video is currently blocked from public viewing, but the clearer version has already been spread on social media from someone who downloaded it before it was taken down.

Should the Toronto Star respond, the article will be updated.
