White House teases 'the end of all selfies' after Samsung stunt

New, 64 comments

The White House is not happy about David Ortiz's Samsung selfie, but it hasn't lost its sense of humor. "Perhaps maybe this will be the end of all selfies," senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer joked on Sunday. The White House has a strict policy against using the president's likeness for profit, and reportedly warned Samsung about the policy in advance, but it's still unclear what repercussions the company might face over the ill-fated tweet. "We’ve had conversations with Samsung about this and expressed our concerns," White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters. "We’ve left that conversation between the lawyers." The White House policy on Snapchats, however, probably hasn't yet been submitted for legal review.
