Selfies Taken at Site of NYC East Village Explosion Stir Controversy

Snapping selfies has gone from cultural faux pas to accepted norm over the last few years, as our constantly connected world shares every aspect of daily life. But there are moments when taking one simply isn't appropriate. Here's a prime example: selfies uploaded to social media of Thursday's East Village explosion in New York City, which left at least 22 people injured (four of them critically) and resulted in two people missing. Reporters and rubberneckers flocked to Second Avenue and East Seventh Street, where the seven-alarm fire eventually demolished three buildings.
