Not every moment is a ‘Selfie’ moment, and President Obama learned this the hard way.

While attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial in South Africa, President Obama leaned in close to pose with Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron.

There is a certain way to behave at a ceremony for someone who passed away, especially when that person is an iconic figure, such as Mandela. In the photo, Michelle Obama even looked disgusted at her husband’s behavior, though the photographer, Roberto Schmidt of AFP, tells a different story in his blog.

Recently, teens have come under fire for taking ‘Selfies’ at funerals, and there was even a website that had an entire collection of their photos.

Do you agree with the President’s behavior?
