A selfie is essentially an exclamation of “Hey, look at me!” Man, I look good/cute/adorable/sexy/funny/interesting and I bet others would agree. At least that’s what they are thinking right now at the moment when funeral is going on.
As far as the context of selfies go, taking a selfie at a funeral seems inappropriate to me but for them it might be FUN. Even the President of America didn’t miss out the chance to appear miffed.
Funerals are serious business! They tend to suggest narcissism setting up these selfie.
How is that even funny?
This one is supremely creepy with the casket behind her
She looks positively radiant. What is there to be so thrilled about?
Nope. We don’t want to see dead bodies.
Going to hell and Kissing It
She doesn’t seem a tad bit depressed
OMG! How can anyone think about their dress when their uncle just died?
Extremely inappropriate caption
Really, it’s not all that funny
While selfies may be fun, funerals are hardly a game
What do you expect if you take a selfie at a funeral?
US President Barack Obama (R) and British Prime Minister David Cameron pose for a picture with Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt (C) next to US First Lady Michelle Obama (R) during the memorial service of South African former president Nelson Mandela at the FNB Stadium (Soccer City) in Johannesburg.
Is the President setting a great example with this?
