A Right-Wing Group Funded By Lululemon's Founder is Posting Homophobic Memes About Justin Trudeau - 2023-08-11
A Facebook page run by a political third party group funded by Lululemon founder Chip Wilson is posting homophobic memes that take aim at Justin Trudeau's recent separation from his spouse as well as the prime minister's sexuality.
Far-right influencers in Canada and around the world have spent the last week in outrage over a photo of Trudeau and his teenage son going to see the Barbie movie while wearing pink – Trudeau's first public appearance after announcing his separation from his spouse, Sophie.
The tweet has prompted egregious memes and homophobic commentary from the far-right questioning the prime minister's sexuality.
BC Proud, a right-wing Facebook page run by the Pacific Prosperity Network third-party group, joined in the pile-on by creating a meme that mocks Trudeau's sexuality and his marriage.
