Russell Peters & the Juno Backlash

Published On April 4, 2017 | By Chris Fudali | Afternoons

Russell Peters made a joke to start the Juno Awards Sunday
(you can skip ahead to the 1:30 mark to watch)
and it has a LOT of people upset, including Heritage Minister Melanie Joly.

What are your thoughts on this?

Russell Peters is a well-known comic for being a little brash at times;
should he have dialed it back because of the audience
OR should people have known that going into the awards
that this is who Russell Peters is?
