The dopest of the Popest! A photo of Pope Francis visiting the Central African Republic has become the latest viral sensation across the Internet, and it's because the leader of the Catholic Church checks his mic and resembles a rapper.
The pic was taken during the Pope's stop in Bangui, the capital of the CAR. Impassioned by the topic, the religious leader grasped a mic closely to his lips and held up his other hand.
Social media users quickly took note of the stance, comparing it to the body language used by some rappers. The hashtag #PopeBars immediately became a trending topic on the Internet, with tweeters conjuring up their very own deductions about the photo and writing up rap verses for the pope. Here, Us Weekly rounds up the best reactions, including tweets from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and others.
