We know that some people are rather upset about Barack Obama's re-election. Or downright hysterical, in some cases.

But did she really need to go there?

Paulina Gretzky, daughter of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, posted an Instagram photo showing her giving the middle finger to an Obama puppet. Her caption was "Ya I Went There" (scroll down to see the photo).

It was an unexpected political turn for an Instagram account usually reserved for photos of Gretzky and her friends partying and, more recently, sexy Halloween costume options.

We're not sure exactly where the model's political preferences lie (other than a dislike of Obama marionettes), but we know she watched the anti-Obama documentary '2016: Obama's America,' which the President's team called an 'insidious attempt to dishonestly smear the president."
