Well the good Reverend Al Sharpton will always have a special place in our hearts, even after this Father’s Day “Mirror Selfie” that he shared with the world today! It’s pretty funny, because we think it’s just a matter of just not knowing good Internet and Selfie Code…lol!
Here’s The Pic…
@real_sharpton Happy Father’s Day!! Headed to workout at dawn, then I’m live on Politics Nation w/Al Sharpton at 8 am/et on MSNBC, then on my national radio show from 9-10 am, and then I preach the 9 30 and 11 30 am services at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark, NJ. Thank God for energy and purpose as I celebrate another Father’s Day.
He posted this photo with the most normal caption ever. But the picture is just so funny, because usually our favorite celebs and Instagram models are know to post a “mirror selfie” to show off their assets from the front and back. But I guess Uncle Al was feeling himself this Father’s Day…so we can’t be mad at that.
Well for those that haven’t seen the “skinny” Al, he’s been that way since around 2014. As reported by People, the Reverand went through several body transformations throughout the years, first losing 30 lbs. while on a 43-day hunger strike in jail in 2001 and then putting the weight back on during his presidential run. The real turning point for him was getting criticism from his daughter.
“Around 2006, my youngest daughter Ashley poked me in the stomach and said, ‘Dad, why are you so fat?’ That kind of hurt my feelings. I grew up in civil rights and politics, so I’m pretty thick-skinned, but when your daughter says it, I started being conscious.”
So here’s the internet’s crazy reactions to Al Sharpton’s Father’s Day selfie.
