The White House Isn’t Very Happy About That Samsung Selfie With Obama


The White House put on record that it “objects” to Samsung’s commercial use of a selfie that Red Sox slugger David Ortiz snapped with President Obama earlier this week.

“As a rule, the White House objects to attempts to use the president’s likeness for commercial purposes,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday. “And we certainly object in this case.” Carney declined to say whether the White House will take any legal action or stop Samsung from further using the photo, which has since been retweeted more than 40,000 times.
