Tony Blair ridiculed on Twitter over Christmas Card
Blair's toothy-grin and 'awkward' pose caused a stir on Twitter
Former British prime minister, Tony Blair, has caused yet another social media storm recently; and this time it has nothing to do with the controversial 2003 Iraq war.
Blair’s annual Christmas card, showing him with wife Cherie Blair, was shared online yesterday only to be met by ridicule on social media site Twitter. His toothy-grin and seemingly uncomfortable pose quickly inspired hashtags such as #ThingsLessUncomfortableThanTonyBlairsChristmasCard.
Some even doubted the photo's authenticty, but the former premier's office confirmed the photo was indeen genuine.
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
Is Tony Blair getting advice from Chandler Bing on how to pose for a photo? pic.twitter.com/nOpeWBkn6b— kelly turner (@kellyvturner81) December 1, 2014
Is it just me or does Tony Blair resemble The Demon Headmaster in his new 2014 Christmas Card? pic.twitter.com/lZSwimZPcL— Lucy Wood (@IamLucyWood) December 1, 2014
The strange thing about Tony Blair's Christmas card is how the teeth seem to follow you round the room. pic.twitter.com/UXUL2pAY5u— Carl Maxim (@carlmaxim) December 1, 2014

I like how Tony Blair's Christmas card is really nice and definitely not terrifying/the stuff of nightmares: pic.twitter.com/9TXQccicZE— Marie Le Grinch (@youngvulgarian) December 1, 2014
Their Christmas card suggests that Cherie Blair's been dead for weeks and Tony's straining from the effort of holding up her embalmed body— nash jenkins (@pnashjenkins) December 1, 2014
