I've been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn't wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) April 1, 2017
Trying to decide whether you'd be #TeamTrudeau or #TeamPerry? Don't worry, you won't actually have to choose. Turns out Mr Trudeau's tweet was just a joke, as confirmed by his press secretary Gerald Butts. Whew.
That "clarification" didn't stop Twitter from blowing up though
okay but I'd actually pay to see a rematch between Trudeau and Matthew Perry https://t.co/Upw3aSOooo— Heather (@h_elizabethb) April 1, 2017
Mr Trudeau and Mr Perry both attended Rockcliffe Park Public School in Ottawa, Canada. The actor recounted his memory of beating up Mr Trudeau when they were students. "I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't. It was pure jealousy."
Mr Trudeau's father, Pierre Trudeau, was Canada's Prime Minister at the time. "That was not the reason why we beat him up. He was the only kid in school we could beat up," the actor said.
"I am not bragging. I was a stupid kid," he admitted. The actor joked about the incident being instrumental in Mr Trudeau's success. "I think he said I'm going to rise above this and I'm going to become the Prime Minister," he laughed.
