As any sane person knows, this whole selfie thing has been long out of control, what with people taking selfies at Holocaust memorials and funerals and whatnot. But with this I think we’ve reached peak selfies.
Reports the New York Post:
America’s selfie obsession reached a new low on Tuesday when a woman snapped a cellphone self-portrait that also captured a suicidal man on the Brooklyn Bridge.
With scores of onlookers watching the dramatic 10 a.m. rescue by cops, the crass camerawoman turned her back to the scene, angled her phone toward the bridge and snapped a shot.
The scarf-clad blonde even cracked a thin smile.
When approached by The Post afterward, she suddenly became camera-shy.
“I’d rather not,” she said when asked for her name. She then hustled out of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Now we can all look forward to this woman being identified publicly and people calling for her to be stoned in the public square. Happy Holidays!
