This woman just caused $200k damage by taking a selfie
Selfie culture is all around us, with people going to great lengths to get the perfect shot.
This woman probably wishes she hadn't, though, after her art gallery selfie resulted in $200,000 worth of damage.
The unnamed woman backed into a line of platforms at New York's 14th Factory gallery, in their exhibition 'Hypercaine'.
All it took was one wrong step, and the sculptures went down like dominoes, one after the other.
However, Twitter is debating whether it was her fault or the gallery's.
To be blaming the woman is ridiculous. The fact that this wasn't set up in a way to protect the art is the gallery's fault.— Alex Jiménez (@RAlexJimenez) July 13, 2017
It comes down to awareness. She wasn't aware enough of her surroundings due to poor judgement and she wasn't aware of her terrible balance.— Charlie Bucket (@PJohnMoonlight) July 13, 2017
why this shit is $200,000 worth of art not secured to the damn floor— Amber Zanon (@bamberton) July 13, 2017
Why they set up $200,000 worth if art like dominoes?— DM Velocity (@DMVelocity) July 14, 2017
Limited display space. It's her fault that was a dumb thing to do.— Shane King@SPARTAN (@ShaneKi97359862) July 14, 2017
It does look like a very precarious display, but we should all be more careful around priceless antiques as a rule.
As yet, there's been no word on whether she'll have to pay to repair the damage, but that would be one hefty bill.
Whose side are you on?
