(WTVR) -  Millions around the world watched President Obama deliver an emotional speech during Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday. Now the president is taking a hit from some for posing for a selfie at the service with other world leaders.

The photo includes British Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

While some called the photo-opp inappropriate, others said the Mandela tribute was about celebrating the man’s life — not about feeling somber about this death.
