Tasteless Selfie Lands Student In Hot Water

There are plenty of selfies floating around that go questionably too far. But one high school student has set a new bar for inappropriate self portraits. On a recent field trip to the University of Alabama, the young girl snapped a quick photo of herself smiling for the camera next to a cadaver, which was part of the university’s medical education program. As if that wasn’t controversial enough, she shared the image with the world on Instagram. Listen to the full details from WHNT News in the clip below:

The selfie has since been removed from Instagram, and the high school is in the process of deciding on how to discipline the student, but they are not discussing the matter publicly at the time of writing.

What do you think? Do some selfies go too far?
