The Getty Images photographer who snapped the selfie seen around the world says First Lady Michelle Obama was not upset with President Barack Obama.
Roberto Schmidt's infamous photo went viral on social networking websites on Tuesday. The photo shows Obama snapping a 'selfie' with himself and the Danish Prime Minister during Nelson Mandela's memorial service in Johannesburg.
Many critics slammed Obama for not maintaining decorum and dignity at such a solemn occasion.
Others assumed Mrs. Obama's pinched facial expression indicated disapproval of the president's childish behavior.
But the photographer disputed the reports.
