President Barack Obama posed for photos in front of a mural for Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara Monday during his historic visit to Cuba.

According to Associated Press reporter Peter Orsi, journalists let out a “collective gasp” in the press room as Obama stopped to be photographed in Revolution Square.

The first president to visit the Communist country in almost 90 years, Obama immediately sparked outrage across social media for what some saw as praise for the controversial mass murderer.

The Argentine guerrilla is said to be responsible for the execution of at least 150 prisoners without fair trial.
