Last month, we revealed that Friends actor Matthew Perry allegedly beat up Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in grade school.
Now, Trudeau thinks it’s time to set the record straight.

In an April Fools tweet, Trudeau suggested the two men should duke it out as adults.
“I’ve been giving it some thought,” he joked on Twitter. “And you know what, who hasn’t wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch?”
As you can see below, Perry politely rejected the offer:
@JustinTrudeau I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir (given that you currently have an army at your disposal)

Perhaps that’s for the best. Before entering politics, the athletically gifted Trudeau worked as a bouncer, and he can also do this:

In 2012, he pummeled Canadian Conservative Patrick Brazeau in a charity boxing match, where he allegedly “pounded his foe into submission with a series of unschooled but powerful haymakers,” according to newspapers.
He’s basically a maniac.
More recently, Twitter pitted images of a young Justin Trudeau against pictures of young Joe Biden, trying to definitively decide which politician was hotter.
