Cultural Misappropriation

Justin Trudeau's Indian charm offensive gets dinged for being just plain offensive.

Not since another Justin treated Super Bowl audiences to a peep show at Janet Jackson's expense has a wardrobe…

It all started out innocently enough: A trip to India to strengthen ties between the two nations, which have been a bit dodgy as of late. Then someone came up with the bright idea of bringing along the wife and kids, turning a stodgy old state visit into a working vacation. The photo opportunities would practically stage themselves, one of Trudeau's advisers doubtlessly said, what with the PM's boy-band good looks flanked by family members cute enough to have stepped whole and smiling from the pages of a J. Crew catalog.
