House Speaker's selfie sparks internet backlash

(WMC) - A selfie from House Speaker Paul Ryan sparked a wave of backlash aimed at the makeup of the people in the picture.

Ryan used a selfie stick to take a picture of himself and all the Capitol Hill interns.

Many users on Twitter and Instagram say the picture is not impressive for having so many people in it, but instead it's impressive that the picture shows no people of color.

Although, one twitter user believes he's found one black woman in the crowd.

The hashtag #InternsSoWhite started trending on Twitter. It's a reference to #OscarsSoWhite which became a movement in 2016 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences failed to nominate a black actor for any of the top four categories for the second year in a row.
