Many people cannot pass a car accident without slowing down and gazing upon the wreckage in some sort of fascination. I always wondered why. Are they looking to make sure it is not someone close to them, are they wrestling with their own mortality, or are they just jerks who like to look at other people’s tragedies? BuzzFeed.com has a story today that takes these rubbernecking people to a whole new level.
Luckily, this behavior has disgusted others who have seen the pictures. One picture shows a smiling couple with a hashtag that read #beingtourists while their caption tags them as being where the building exploded. One commenter, obviously upset by the lack of their sensitivity, asked them to leave their neighborhood immediately.
