WH uses new gangster movie ‘Straight Outta Compton’ to plug Iran deal; Twitter goes NUCLEAR

The Obama administration is embarrassing itself again.

In an attempt to seem hip and relevant, the White House tried to capitalize on the buzz over a new gangster movie titled “Straight Outta Compton” to promote the administration’s highly criticized nuclear deal with Iran.

The White House’s “The Iran Deal” Twitter account piggybacked off BuzzFeed’s review of the movie:

Needless to say, the response to the poorly executed “Straight Outta Uranium” tweet was overwhelmingly negative – just like the response to the Iran deal itself.

“Straight Outta Compton” was released on Thursday to much anticipation. According to Variety magazine:

The law enforcement agencies are taking precautionary steps in response to the potential problems amid the launch of the film, which chronicles the history of the landmark rap group N.W.A and includes scenes of gang violence and police harassment.

The film is also opening in the wake of demonstrations against police tactics in Ferguson, Mo., and the July 23 killings of two movie patrons at a Louisiana theater showing of “Trainwreck.”

As police braced themselves for the possibility of more violence, folks on Twitter let “The Iran Deal” know exactly what they thought of their not-so-cutesy stunt.

You may be “longing” for a long while.

That’s for sure.
