Instagrammers Are Callously Taking Selfies In Front Of This Dangerous Erupting Volcano

The fiery eruption of Mt. Agung in Bali has forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes as lava, ash and carbon dioxide pose deadly threats. Unfortunately, Instagramming tourists seem to lack empathy for the island’s residents, instead opting to gleefully take tacky and insensitive selfies and photos in front of the dramatic clouds of ash. 

Aspiring yogis and svelte women in barely-there bikinis (we’ve left most of these out) seem eager show off their prowess and skin in front of the potentially deadly disaster. It’s incredibly insulting to the residents whose homes are in danger, and raises some serious questions about empathy and entitlement in the age of social media.

    Nothing beats enjoying a cup of coffee in front of an active and erupting volcano.
