#NationalSelfieDay: Rev. Al Sharpton posts mirror selfie, Internet blasts him


On National Selfie Day, a celebrity most wouldn’t suspect to become selfie poster child has the internet ablaze. (Hint: It’s not a Kardashian.)

Civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton posted a Father’s Day/gym flow mirror selfie to his Instagram account Sunday that has since raised a few eyebrows.

Many on social media are roasting the 62-year-old for the seemingly random full-body mirror selfie.

Criticisms ranged from commenting on his slim figure to poking fun at his awkward posing.

The jokes didn’t stop there. After footage of Sharpton’s one-armed push ups were discovered, even rapper Nelly was looking for answers as to who Sharpton was snapping pics for.

Despite the social media dragging, Sharpton seems unbothered. He posted a selfie alongside Rev. Jesse Jackson in honor of National Selfie Day.
