Accompanied by a sign that read, "MR. PRESIDENT MAY A HAVE A SELFIE WITH YOU?" on a US army base in Seoul today, 13-year-old Mika Taylor was straight denied a photo with the president in what might be the beginning of a widespread #selfiegate.
After baseball player and Samsung shill David Ortiz mixed business with the pure pleasure of presidential selfie-taking, the White House was suggesting a potential ban on the artform, though they later said it was in jest.
Like a schoolmarm who hates fun, Obama reportedly told Taylor that if he took a selfie with her, he'd have to take one with everyone. He instead suggested she take a picture of him as he was going by.
Is this the definitive moratorium on selfies? Have we reached peak selfie?
