Former First Lady Michelle Obama had her first TV interview since leaving the White House on Thursday, on the “Ellen” show, and gave host Ellen DeGeneres a Barack Obama Chia Pet as a gift.

However, when the Barack Obama Chia pet first hit store shelves in 2009, many people saw the product as racist. The public backlash over the product resulted in Walgreens pulling the product from its stores in Tampa and Chicago.

Michelle Obama brought a handful of gifts for Ellen in honor of the host’s birthday, and the Barack Obama Chia Pet was among those gifts.

“And last but not least, to remember the good times,” Michelle Obama said, while pulling out the Barack Obama Chia Pet. “A little Barack Obama Chia Pet.”

The audience could be heard laughing and applauding the gift.

Ellen and Michelle Obama joked about the gift and said that the hair should probably be gray instead of green.
