Mr Trudeau said he wouldn't be "making any more jokes" following the comment he made at a Q&A session at the MacEwan University in Edmonton.

"He faced the wrath of the social media when he interrupted a girl and told her to say 'peoplekind" instead of 'mankind'.

But after finding himself the butt of jokes the prime minister backed away from his comments on Wednesday during a scrum with reporters before he headed into a Liberal caucus meeting.

"It played well in the room and in context".

Trudeau cut her off and said: "We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind because it's more inclusive".The audience reacted positively when he made the correction.

"It's a little reminder to me that I shouldn't be making jokes even when I think they're amusing", he concluded.

The remark triggered a segment on U.S. President Donald Trump's favourite TV shows Tuesday ahead of the prime minister's visit to the U.S.in hopes of selling Canada's virtues stateside. British media personality Piers Morgan also wrote about the remark, sarcastically saying, "Mankind ended last night".

Another user posted: "What a joke".

Some comical memes included "Justin Trudeau Takes Peoplehattan", "Justin, watch out for the Peoplehole" and "Peopledarin organges".

The Opposition Conservatives also got in a few jabs, with deputy Tory leader Lisa Raitt urging the prime minister to "person up" during a testy exchange in the House of Commons. Jordan Peterson, who has gained notoriety for steadfastly refusing to use gender-neutral terms, turning him into something of a celebrity on the right.
