Boris Johnson Puts His Foot Up on a Table During His Meeting with President Macron
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was labeled "rude" and "embarrassing" after he was pictured putting his foot up on a table in the Élysée Palace during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday, Business Insider reports.
In the meeting between the two leaders, Macron ruled out a fundamental renegotiation of the United Kingdom's Brexit deal.
Johnson's biographer Sonia Purnell was among the people on social media criticizing Johnson's posture in the picture.
"Rude and embarrassing," Purnell tweeted. "Imagine if Macron put his foot on the table at Buckingham Palace."
However, a video that emerged later appeared to show the two leaders joking about using the table as a footstool.
