Selfie Fails That Went Viral For The Wrong Reasons.

People usually like to take selfies so that they don’t have to rely on someone else’s photo skills. Not everyone is capable of taking a good photo. At least when you take a selfie, you have just yourself to rely on. How can the photo go wrong if you’re the one pressing the button — especially if you get to see how you look in the photo right before you take it.

But nope, even selfies can fail us — specifically if you don’t check what’s in the background prior to taking the photo. Backgrounds are very important and you’ll see how true that is in the photos below.
