Ellen DeGeneres' Epic Oscars Selfie Has 2.6 Million Retweets

Twitter

The “Best photo ever” also has 1.3 million favorites

Ellen DeGeneres’ group Oscars selfie shattered Barack Obama's previous Twitter retweet record before the awards show had even ended.

By Monday morning, at the time of this posting, Ellen's “Best photo ever” had more than 2.6 million retweets and was still growing. It also had more than 1.3 million favorites — and those figures aren't even counting all of the mentions and Internet shares and memes that instantly followed.

The selfie photo, taken by “American Hustle” star Bradley Cooper, features Cooper, Ellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o (plus her brother), Channing Tatum, Jared Leto (kind of), Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts. Others tried to squeeze in, but couldn't make the frame.

The previous record holder from President Obama that simply read “Four more years,” garnered 778,801 retweets.

Here's Ellen's tweet with the image:

    Yeah, she's a twit, all right. A flaming gay, ugly, annoying phucking twit. And SHE is the face of hollywood. Sure says something about all the degenerates in the industry, doesn't it? Sure says something about the rapid downhill decline of this country and society, doesn't it? Pardon the ‘degenerate’ pun. Although ellen IS a complete degenerate. A big, homosexual-agenda-pushing degenerate.

    stop kidding..please excuse me but your total lack of manners is showing. I would wager that your mother would never condone your rather derogatory foul mouthed description of a woman who in no way shape or form has or would have anything to do with you. She is simply a well mannered polite entertainer who tries to make people laugh and enjoy life. Simply put, she is classy and goes out of her way to be “generous” with both her time and money for the betterment of others. Can we say that about you perhaps? I don't like exhibitionists: Miley, the Kardashians, the judgmental ducks clan……extremes of uncivilized behavior is far more offensive than a well mannered lady who happens to be gay.
