President Obama joined in on a selfie at the memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela on Tuesday.


Obama leaned in with British Prime Minister David Cameron, as Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt snapped a picture of the three world leaders smiling while tens of thousands of mourners and other dignitaries paid their respects in Johannesburg to Mandela, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 95.

First Lady Michelle Obama can be seen in the photo (far right) observing the solemnity of the occasion.

Suffice to say, a number of people have taken issue with Obama and the two other politicians for grinning and posing for a selfie during the somber service.
