President Barack Obama sparked outrage among some social media users on Monday when he was photographed in front of a mural of Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara in Cuba.
The commander-in-chief was blasted on Twitter after he was photographed standing in front of a Cuban ministry building featuring a five-story representation of Guevara in Havana’s Revolution Square, according to the Washington Examiner.
“Mr. President, you’re a disgrace,” one user wrote.
“So, Obama couldn’t make it to Chris Kyle’s memorial service, but he will stand at attention for Che Guevara,” another chimed in.
Obama was standing with several officials while taking part in a wreath laying ceremony. He’s in Cuba for a historic two-day visit. Guevara, who was executed in Bolivia in 1967 for inciting a revolution, considered the U.S. his worst enemy, as TIME once noted.
