Margaret Atwood’s National Post column removed, then re-posted, prompts hair-raising storm on social media

Atwood’s column, titled “Hair is in the election-season air, but is it crucial to the question of your vote?,” focused on attack ads from Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper on his rival Justin Trudeau. The ads in question began with “Nice hair, Justin.”

After the column was published, the Post took it down for several hours. Atwood tweeted to the newspaper, writing, “Um, did I just get censored?”
