Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is a possible Republican contender for the presidency in 2016 and one of the most high profile Indian-Americans in U.S. politics.
Here is a portrait of Governor Jindal that has hung in the lobby of his office since 2008.
The painting is not an official portrait but was instead painted by a constituent.
Mistakenly believing this to be his official portrait, people on Twitter had a lot to say.
To clarify the confusion, Jindal's chief of staff Kyle Plotkin tweeted the Governor's official portrait and accused the man who posted it on Twitter on Tuesday of "race-baiting."
