BROOKLYN - Residents around the borough are weighing in on the 'selfie seen around the world' of President Obama with the Danish and British prime ministers.

Some feel the impromptu photo shoot was inappropriate, given that it was at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela.

Others think that the selfie was perfectly fine considering the celebratory nature of the occasion and that it was meant to pay homage to Mandela and the historic moment.
