This Guy Got Shot in the Shoulder and Immediately Decided to Post a Selfie

Status update: Feeling shot

What did Isaac Martinez do after sustaining a gunshot wound after a white supremacist went on a rampage in Mesa, Ariz., on Wednesday? He took a selfie, of course.

According to two images posted by a local reporter on Twitter, Martinez appears to have snapped at least two selfies after suspect Ryan E. Giroux allegedly approached and shot him through the shoulder at a restaurant operated by the East Valley Institute of Technology in suburban Phoenix.

Martinez was later treated at a local hospital and informed his friends via Facebook that he was at home and convalescing and thankfully was not suffering from any “complicated injuries.”


The Metropolitan Museum of Art Banned Selfie Sticks

Museums worry they could hurt other visitors or damage the art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is banning selfie sticks. So, if you’re hoping to Instagram yourself standing in the Temple of Dendur, you may be out of luck.

The Met is one of many museums discouraging use of the selfie stick on the grounds that it could be dangerous to other visitors and to the artwork itself, although signs explicitly banning them have not yet been posted, the New York Times reports.

MOMA has also banned the selfie stick, along with the National Gallery of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Museum officials told the Times they were concerned that waving selfie sticks around could hit other visitors or damage delicate artwork.

Selfie sticks are still permitted at the Louvre in Paris as well as the Tate Modern and National Gallery in London — for now.

Fans Freak Out That Kim Kardashian ‘Cropped’ North West Out of Selfie

When it comes to Instagramming celebrity motherhood, it's "you lose some, you lose some"

Kim Kardashian fans are incensed, simply incensed, that the reality star apparently “cropped” North West out of her latest selfie posted Monday:

The off-center shot, showing a sliver of North’s face, was reamed in Instagram comments—proving that when it comes to celebrity motherhood, social media is often a “you lose some, you lose some” scenario.

If Kardashian posts a picture of her baby on Instagram, she’s accused of something ridiculous like waxing the tot’s eyebrows. If she posts a picture in which North’s face isn’t fully in view, she’s “ruthless” or afraid to share the spotlight.

One Direction And Jimmy Kimmel Take ‘Cutest Selfie Ever’

Complete with children, feather boas, and of course, a boy band

Jimmy Kimmel was on a mission to take the “cutest selfie ever” with boy band One Direction on his show Thursday. To make it cuter, he added children, puppies, bunny ears, feather boas, stuffed animals and a mini unicorn. Of course, fans of One Direction would say the cutest part of the picture was the members of the internationally known boy band themselves.

One Direction’s recently released their newest album “Four.”



ABC Cancels TV Comedy Selfie

Nicole Wilder—ABC "Selfie," on the ABC Television Network.

We hardly new ya

ABC revealed Friday the network is not renewing the TV comedy “Selfie” for another season past the original 13-episodes ordered.

The comedy, which stars Karen Gillan and John Cho and delves into a helplessly narcissistic woman’s relationship with social media, suffered from abysmal ratings and ridicule on social media of some views, Entertainment Weekly reports, averaging 4.7 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49.

In September, co-star John Cho sat down for an interview with TIME about the new show, in which he fretted over the show’s name.

“I was scared that people would never watch the show because “selfie” of course sounds terrible,” Cho said. “And it should! It is a good gag reflex we have as a society, that we hear the word selfie and dislike it. Maybe we should loathe the concept a little bit.”

ABC says the show will air in its scheduled time slot next Tuesday but what happens after that is unclear.

Selfie meets the same fate as ABC’s “Manhattan Love Story,” which was canceled last month.

The Rosetta Spacecraft Took an Epic Selfie With a Comet

Using the CIVA camera on Rosetta’s Philae lander, the spacecraft have snapped a ‘selfie’ at comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko from a distance of about 16 km from the surface of the comet. The image was taken on Oct. 7, 2014 and captures the side of the Rosetta spacecraft and one of Rosetta’s 14 m-long solar wings, with the comet in the background.

Mission Selfie: Accomplished

Europe’s Rosetta spacecraft took a selfie published Tuesday that is, quite literally, out of this world.

Rosetta’s mission is to land on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The spacecraft is very close to its target, enough that the comet appears in the background of this image only 16km away.

Rosetta, dubbed Europe’s “comet chaser,” went into space in 2004. It had many things on its to-do list, including eventually landing on 67P. But for now, Mission Selfie accomplished.


Hajj 2014: The Year of The Selfie

Hajj is an annual pilgrimage for Muslims all over the world

Hajj is a pilgrimage that all Muslims must partake in at least once. It is also the largest annual gathering in the world with millions of people coming to pray at the holy site, Mecca. But this religious tradition has a new element: selfies. Taking a selfie at Hajj has become a trend, especially now that camera phones are no longer strictly banned at the site. However, some people are against taking self-portraits at what is supposed to be “a pilgrimage that contains no boasting or showing of[f]” according to Arab News.
