It’s not his official portrait, but people have a lot to say about it.
1. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is a possible Republican contender for the presidency in 2016 and one of the most high profile Indian-Americans in U.S. politics.
2. Here is a portrait of Governor Jindal that has hung in the lobby of his office since 2008.
4. Mistakenly believing this to be his official portrait, people on Twitter had a lot to say.
@CenLamar @Peacepox @theInd This portrait has been “white” washed! What happened to his proud Indian heritage?
.@grimcity @CenLamar @theInd You sure thats not the dad from Modern Family?
@nycsouthpaw He has a halo thing going on. Part’s on the wrong side. Half-grin missing. Did someone pay for this? In Confederate bills?
@DianneG @LoganJames @TheInd Painting done by the guys who did the casting for Exodus.
12. To clarify the confusion, Jindal’s chief of staff Kyle Plotkin tweeted the Governor’s official portrait and accused the man who posted it on Twitter on Tuesday of “race-baiting.”
Hey @CenLamar-that’s not the official portrait. Constituent loaned it.This 1’s official. Thx 4 ur race-baiting tweet
