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:
