Offensive tweet alert: Gerald Butts vs. USA

“Rape Central”?!

If you’re wondering why “Butts” is trending on Twitter in Canada, it’s because Justin Trudeau’s former principal secretary and political aid — and, according to Maclean’s, the 14th most powerful Canadian (circa 2014) — Gerald Butts shared a broadly offensive anti-American map via tweet. He has since deleted the tweet and apologized for sharing the map without “reading it closely.”
