Some People Are Upset That Michelle Obama Wore This To A Church

One of the benefits of not being one of the most famous people in the world is that you can generally wear whatever you want without others paying it much mind. As long as you’re in the realm of appropriateness for the situation at hand, you can go on about your life without facing a ton of criticism about your fashion choices. When you’re famous, that luxury goes out the windows. A curious fashion choice of a particularly famous person can cause an eruption on social media in no time. As Opposing Views shares, that’s what happened to former First Lady Michelle Obama the other day.

The former First Lady and her husband, former President Barack Obama, stopped by the Duomo di Siena, an ancient Siena Cathedral during their trip to Italy. The vacationing Michelle was spotted wearing a shoulderless top while entering the church, and the assembled paparazzi was more than happy to snap away. Before you knew it, those photos were plastered online, and some users were taken aback by Michelle’s fashion choice for the day.

"You do NOT go into cathedrals in Italy with all that skin exposed, she should know better," shared one user.

"She should have some class and cover up...very embarrassing for Americans," added another.

Of course, there were plenty of other users that rushed to her defense instantly.

"She's traveling the world on beaches and warm climates idiot, what do you think is going to happen. I can't wait for my summer bronzing," chimed in one commenter.

"She is probly enjoying being able to wear whatever she wants and not have to follow dress codes for various events," added another.

This being social media, the matter soon degenerated even further. Before you knew it, comparisons between the current and former First Ladies were making the rounds, as if this little non-controversy was somehow related to politics.

"This would look better on Melania. Michelle has a great figure, but this top doesn't suit her at all," said one user.

"She had a great platform, educating people on eating healthy. What is Melanias again? Marry as rich as you can and avoid him at all cost? A real national treasure," added another. "Zero education, zero accomplishments, lies about her degrees, lies about her secret brother, lies about her plastic surgery, an utter disgrace to the nation. Michelle, you are missed."

Point taken there, but it could have been made with a few less insults and general snark.
