17 Questionable #Funeral Selfies On Instagram

Everyone grieves in their own way, but taking a selfie might not be the best way.

Death is a part of life. So are selfies. The two combined lead to a lot of... well, poor Instagram decisions.

Disclaimers first: we're not trying to make fun of anyone who is in mourning. Death is sad, and people mourn in different ways. If you want to get dressed up and smile wide at a funeral, maybe that's just your process. And funerals, along with weddings, are often the only opportunity you have to dress up and put on a tie or nice dress. And YES, everyone looks good in black.

But man - do you really need THREE angles on your funeral outfit? Do you really have to run to the church bathroom to take a mirror selfie? Does your prom dress really have to pull double duty as your funeral outfit?

Here are 17 times someone looked too damn good to let a little thing like a funeral get in the way of preening for the camera.

  1. This is tagged "#asian #selfie #selca #rip #grandmother #family #familyaffair #newyork #suit #tie #blacksuit #suitandtie #outfit #formal #classy #goodbye #funeral #attire #blackandwhite #blackwhite #mirror #glasses #hair #hairstyle #japanese #style"

    That's #Too #Many #Hashtags for a funeral.

  2. "Went for a friend's dad's funeral nd I had sooooooooooooooo much fun #funeral #friends #workfuneral #Godstimethebest"

    Really? sooooooooooooooo much fun? I dunno, maybe there was a bouncy castle at the funeral or something like that.

  3. So much going on here. For one thing: if you insist on being inappropriate at the gravesite, at LEAST check the background.

  4. It's the lip ring that makes it, right? At least it's black.

  5. Fairly appropriate look, but the tags... "#selfiesunday #fashionista #makeuplover #womenwhohustle #business #studentoflife #dressforsuccess #selfie #bosslady #dresstoimpress #funeral #blackeverything #latinas #europa #lipsallday #red #entrepreneurs #spanishwomen #internationalmodels #america #eyes #appreciatethoseyouhave #lifeistooshort #esteelauder #mac #nerd"

    At a funeral, but she's still a #nerd #entrepreneur thankfully.

  6. Deuces! Jeans to the cemetery!

  7. SO SHINY

  8. Not sure what you're going for with this stare, Sgt. Sparks.

  9. There are two things wrong in this picture.

  10. Not the most cemetery-appropriate face, plus a hashtag problem here: "#funeral #memorialsunday #lipsnpout"

  11. If you HAVE to snap a funeral selfie, at least do it #nofilter.

  12. At first, it seemed she'd tagged this "#funeralswag" because she'd killed the fashion game. But then came #RIPgrandma.

  13. The caption? "Yay funerals. At least you don't get called a goth or emo for wearing black lol. #Funeral #yay #woofun #deadppl #wat #wtf #blackdress #scene #pixiecut #brownhair #bruh. #lolsoFat #lgbt #lesbianofinstagram #lesbian #morningworld"

    Goths love funerals, but come on - dial back the enthusiasm.

  14. This is tagged "#funeraldirector #problems." Funeral director problems probably involve more corpses than other people's problems.

  15. Captioned "Lol just got #home bouta get ready for this #funeral n a couple hours." The phone case takes it over the top, right?

  16. What they said.

  17. Captioned: "Ashes To Ashes... Dust To Dust. #coworkersbrodied #tragic #rip #funeralattire #makesureandthrowwateroveryourshoulder #dohwanothingfollowingyuhhome #inuhboutthatjumbielife #idigress #gorFOKINGgous #cute #handsome #instaguy #badboysofinstagram #mancandy #beardlife #beardenvy #ootd #gq #fashionkids #kfc #f4f #l4l #carlos" Just a tremendous amount of hashtag issues.
