Ellen DeGeneres created a viral sensation when she took a star-studded selfie with Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o and Angelina Jolie at the Oscars March 2. Within less than an hour, the picture crushed the retweet record set by Barack Obama on Nov. 6, 2012. At the time, the reelected U.S. president posted a photo of himself with First Lady Michelle Obama and wrote, "Four more years."
Barack appeared via satellite on Thursday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the comedienne couldn't help but brag about her virtual victory. "I don't know if you know this, but I was aiming to break your record of retweets and I apologize for doing it," DeGeneres said. "But I broke your retweet record."
"I heard about that," Barack replied. The 52-year-old politician then joked, "I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself. Getting a bunch of celebrities in the background...you feeding them pizza."
