PHOTOS: Obama's Selfies At Nelson's Mandela's Memorial Sets The Internet AblazeWednesday, December 11, 2013
President Barack Obama, Denmark's Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron pose for a picture during the memorial service for Nelson Mandela at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, December 10, 2013.
As world leaders gathered to pay their respect and honour the life of Nelson Mandela, South Africa's anti-apartheid hero, social media seemed more interested in a selfie featuring US President Barack Obama, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
The main concern on Twitter was that the superpower selfie, taken by Thorning-Schmidt with a smiling Obama and Cameron in the frame, was not in good taste at the sombre gathering.
Personally i think South Africans are celebrating Mandela's death, so i see no reason why Obama should be skinned for smiling for their private pics...What do you think?
