During a visit to St. Saviour Parish in Bangui, Uganda over the weekend, The Pope was photographed holding a microphone and his left arm stretched out as if he was about to freestyle.

Clearly, the internet found out about it and had a field day crafting memes and tweets as if Pope Francis was a rapper due to the positioning of his body in the photo.
