Justin Trudeau Challenges Matthew Perry to a Rematch 2017

Matthew Perry Responds to Justin Trudeau's Request For a Rematch

Matthew Perry better watch out, because Justin Trudeau is out for revenge. The Canadian prime minister, who used to get beat up by Matthew Perry in primary school, tweeted on Saturday morning that he wants a rematch. "I've been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn't wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?" he wrote.

Matthew later replied to Justin, saying, "@JustinTrudeau I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir (given that you currently have an army at your disposal)."

The former Friends star, who is half Canadian, revealed during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this month that he used to beat up Justin. Although Matthew was in year 6 at the time and a few years older, he admitted that it was out of jealousy. "I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't . . . so it was pure jealousy."
