Dr. Hedy Fry published a tweet today in which she highlighted Conservative candidate John Hirst posting a Denzel Washington meme which states “Mah N*gga.”

According to Dr. Fry, posting the meme is racist, and her party will not stop until all Canadians know that her party opposes the use of the Denzel Washington meme on Facebook.

Making the situation fairly awkward for the Liberal campaign, former Liberal Deputy Prime Minister Sheila Copps posted the following tweet an hour after Hedy Fry attacked Andrew Scheer and John Hirst.
