"I think this sets a record for the most number of #CapitolHill interns in a single selfie. #SpeakerSelfie," he wrote.

However, people have been criticizing the photo because nearly all of the interns pictured are white.

"This should be a wake up call. And hopefully embarrassing. #diversity," one person wrote.

People called it the "least diverse selfie in history."

And the award for the least diverse selfie in history goes to @SpeakerRyan

And called the speaker "tone-deaf."

Ugh, admittedly, terrible. Paul Ryan is tone deaf. https://t.co/IB5eOOqhjs

"Plenty of diversity; I see blue suits, a green suit, brunettes, blondes - lots of diversity!" one person wrote.
