Just when you thought the “trend” of taking selfies at funerals were horrible and disrespectful, along comes an even more tasteless trend. Selfies with homeless people shows just how inhumane people are in our world. During recent months, hundreds of photos have been curated from where people have uploaded pictures of themselves mocking homeless people all across the U.S.
Fast Company editor, Jason Feifer, who compiled the “Selfies at Funerals” and “Selfies at Serious Places” Tumblr accounts, unveiled his latest project – “Selfies with Homeless People” – this week.
“One of my favorite things about social media is seeing so many people, without knowledge of each other, do or say the exact same thing,” he told Business Insider.
“It’s like a gigantic social experiment in odds-making – why do some ideas become so common?” he added.
Although Feifer says he’s not endorsing the activities of the people involved in taking the photos, he has no problem in posting them.
And this is why certain people shouldn’t have access to the internet and social media. It’s all fun and games until someone comes across the wrong homeless person who doesn’t take kindly to being photographed.
