Tunisians Mock Obama on Facebook

Tuesday, 01 Nov 2011 05:55 PM

The Arab Spring is coming back to haunt President Barack Obama in a big way – and it’s not pretty.

Obama got slammed this week — all the way from Tunisia, according to Politico. Tunisian Facebook users posted thousands of comments on Obama’s Facebook page in what they called a “virtual surprise attack” mocking him and showing support for the Occupy Wall Street movement, Politico reported, citing a report in Al Arabiya .

The Facebook spamming was organized on Twitter over the weekend through the hashtag #TrollingObama in response to reports of police brutality against Occupy Wall Street.

A number of the most popular and reposted comments were jokes connected to the Arab Spring, such as “Tunisia is the first country to recognize the American Transitional National Council” and “To overthrow any corrupt system in the world, please contact the Tunisian people.”
“Tunisian people denounce violations against the American people by the security forces, which affect the freedom of expression,” another user wrote.

One Facebook commenter noted that Obama could blame the weather for the Internet takedown.

“Sorry OB! Today’s a rainy and boring day in Tunisia so we Tunisians, having nothing better to do, decided to decorate your Facebook wall!” user Sami Agina wrote, according to Storyful. “All the Arabic writings (These should look like ‘gibberish’ to you I guess) are hilarious!”
