White House expresses displeasure at Red Sox 'selfie'

Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz (L) takes a selfie with US President Barack Obama after presenting his a jersey during a ceremony on the South Lawn at the White House in Washington, on April 1, 2014The White House warned Thursday against using President Barack Obama’s image for commercial gain, after a top baseball star snapped a “selfie” with the US leader on a Samsung phone. The company retweeted the shot taken by Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz on its Note 3 device, pouncing on a viral marketing coup. But the White House, after initially holding its fire over the snap taken when the World Series winning Red Sox team met Obama, made its displeasure clear two days later. “As a rule, the White House objects to attempts to use the President’s likeness for commercial purposes,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
