Twitter: David Cameron

Is this the kind of leader the Brits need? Or is this the kind of leader they deserve?

British Prime Minister David Cameron committed a fast-casual faux pas when he was spotted eating a hot dog with a knife and fork. Cameron committed the questionable act at a family Easter barbecue in near Poole, England, during a campaign stop.

The photo of the U.K.’s current leader, published by The Daily Mail, went viral. Apparently, Cameron is more comfortable noshing on messy foods with the help of cutlery. Back in 2012, The Daily Mail printed a photo of Cameron on his 2012 visit to the United States eating some franks with President Obama: “the posh Dave struggled to eat a hot dog without silver service,” the tabloid quipped at the time.

The issue was divisive in the Twitter-sphere:

Don’t worry, Dave, you’re not alone. Mayor Bill de Blasio was blasted last year for eating New York pizza with cutlery: a fork pas that is decidedly much more embarrassing.
