WASHINGTON- The White House objects to Samsung promoting a selfie of President Obama taken by Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz using a Samsung phone.

Presidential spokesman Jay Carney says the White House objects any time the President's likeness is used for commercial purposes.

In this case he says, "We certainly object."

Ortiz tweeted the photo of him and the President to followers on Tuesday when the World Series Champions were hosted at the White House.

It has been resent by thousands of Twitter users and then Samsung retweeted it in an advertisement touting the picture was taken on a Samsung phone.
