Public opinion slams Michelle Obama on drone attack

Public opinion slams Michelle Obama on drone attack

US First Lady Michelle Obama has attempted to show support for the 274 schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria, but several people have quickly subverted her message and turned it into an anti-drone campaign.
The Instagram picture has created a backlash of criticism in the form of tweets revolving around anti-drone protest.
The hashtag, #WeCantBringBackOurDead is being added to the tweets and has gained quite a bit of traction online.
The new tweets and Instagram pictures compare the terrorist activities of Boko Haram to drone strikes, and the tweets in which they’ve been mentioned have gone viral, being retweet thousands of times.
The US First Lady’s attempts to support a good cause were ambushed by people on Twitter:
