Have Some Selfie Respect
The word was added to the dictionary this year and as a lover of the Selfie, I get why this has happened. I for one, LOVE a selfie and when I am old and grey (checks watch, in about 2 years) I will flick through my selfies thinking, "Whooooaaaaaaaaa, you know what? you weren't half bad." (maybe, possibly)
But Selfie's at a memorial!
Show some selfie respect.
Especially if you are the President or Prime Minister.
Does anyone truly think that the memorial of Nelson Mandela was a great place to smile and "say cheese"?
Because I bloody don't.
There is a time and a place for this sort of behaviour and a funeral or memorial is not one of them. Especially the memorial of a man such as Nelson Mandela.
What were Barack Obama, David Cameron and Helle Thorning-Schmidt THINKING? (apart from "this will look great on my instagram)
At least Michelle Obama had the grace to keep well out of it. Did anyone else think she looked as if she wanted to throttle Barack Obama at that moment? (Don't blame her)
So what do you think about the Selfie pic taken at the memorial of Nelson Mandela?
A lack of respect or just a sign of how our standards have slipped over the last few years?
Let me know.
