You people cannot be stopped. No matter how many times we go through this, whether it’s selfies at funerals, or selfies with homeless people, or selfies at fucking Nazi concentration camps, and now selfies at the East Village building explosion site, there is literally no place or situation on Earth that some grinning idiot won’t float their goofy grill in front of in order to share with the world the important news that they exist. lol.
It’s not often that I can say this, but I actually agree with the New York Post’s cover today. Three collapsed buildings and 25 seriously injured people is not a tourist attraction. You’re not front row at Beyonce or standing in front of a particular pretty sunset. If you want to document it, yes, fine, go ahead and do so. Take a picture of the rubble and say something like “Here’s the site of the explosion.” But making the editorial choice to enhance the story with your own fucked up face is not only tasteless, it’s heartless.
