The group selfie taken in the audience contained some of Hollywood’s most famous actors: Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Jared Leto to name a few.
The selfie broke Twitter only a few minutes after being posted. Speculation quickly spread that the selfie was to blame and was confirmed by DeGeneres who mentioned the email she got from the social media giant.
The tweet has been retweeted over two million times and counting. The previous record holder from President Obama contains a picture of himself and Michelle hugging with the caption “Four more years” back in November of 2012 has just over 781,000 retweets in more than 15 months.
