Obama’s response to violence is the most liked tweet ever

16 August 2017 2

Following a Charlottesville incident where one was killed and several others injured after a man hit a bunch of counter-protesters with his car during a white supremacist rally, a lot has been talked about over the internet. In response to the incident, Obama had responded by saying “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion”, which was posted alongside a picture where Obama was standing next to a window, greeting children from different ethnicities.

The tweet instantly gained appreciation on a global basis and went on to achieve as much as 3 million likes on Twitter, making it the most liked tweet in history. The tweet has now surpassed Ellen DeGeneres’ 2014 Oscar Selfie which now ranks third on the list with 2.4 million likes. Ariana Grande’s tweet in response to the Manchester terrorist bombing at her concert still holds the top spot with over 2.7 million likes to go with it.

Obama’s response was crafted from late South African President Nelson Mandela’s autobiographyLong Walk to Freedom” and has established the fact that Obama is still an attraction to crowds from all over the world. Keeping the former President’s tweet aside, we also witnessed the current President Trump’s reaction to the tragedy where he blamed many sides to be involved in the communal violence. To get over much criticism, Trump covered up by denouncing the Ku Klux Klan members, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists as thugs and criminals soon after which we saw CEOs of leading industries resigning from Trump’s Council, which wasn’t surprising to start with.

Mr. Obama is one of the highly respected men on the planet today. No wonder, his tweet still has the same importance and weight even if he is not donning any post, especially that of the US President.
