The image is not real, but was altered for a graphic arts contest on the website Worth1000.com. The contest was called If Pimps Ruled 2 and was held back in 2009.

The altered image, named President Pimp by user DaemonDCLXVI, placed fifth in the contest.

The graphic has circulated on social media over the past 6 years, and surges in social media sharing after Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day each year. In November 2015, for example, we saw the photo circulating on Facebook, with some readers believing that this was the President’s Halloween costume.

Obama not a pimp

The actual photo dates from early 2009, and features the President and First Lady wearing traditional clothes.

Bottom Line

The photo of President Obama wearing a pimp costume is fake. It was created for a graphic arts contest back in 2009, and is often shared after Halloween by readers who are unaware that it isn’t real.
