Are ‘Selfies’ OK During Memorial Services? [POLL]
We can all agree taking selfies during a funeral is tasteless and unacceptable, but now that a selfie photo of Obama at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service has surfaced, do we consider this to be Ok, because technically, a memorial service is suppose to involve giving celebration to someone’s life?
“Selfies” have taken over the world in both a good and bad way, one bad way would be when individuals take selfies of themselves at funerals. Either these people have no common sense or they are just ignorant to the reason behind a selfie photo. So, is the selfie of Obama with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt considered to be ok because it was taken at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service? Or, do you feel it’s just as inappropriate as taking a selfie at someone’s funeral? George Bush and Bono did it too!
