Teen's 'Selfie' With Laboring Pregnant Teacher Is Causing an Uproar (PHOTO)

OMG 71

selfieIn general, teens aren't known for their good judgment. We all know, they are prone to silly, impractical choices sometimes. Well, one class cut-up is getting a lot of heat for a selfie he snapped at school. In the controversial photo, Malik Whiter is sporting a big smile whie his teacher is suffering through labor pains in the background.

Now he is getting slammed for flippantly capturing the moment. Take a look.


The Florida teen tweeted the image along with the caption, "Selfie with my teacher while she having contractions." Before snapping the pic seven-months pregnant business lecturer Susana Halleck, "I told her to smile and she said no." He took the photo anyway, saying he wanted to commemorate the moment. His teacher was rushed to the hospital, but it turned out to be a false alarm and both she and the baby are fine.

The photo has since gone viral and people are outraged that he would choose to show his teacher in such an anguished moment. But honestly, people need to relax. It wasn’t like there wasn’t someone else in the room tending to her. He’s a kid. What do people expect? It may not be the most sensitive thing to have done, but it certainly wasn't a mean-spirited action.

Thankfully Whiter isn't letting the criticism get to him. He's even thinking about making it his wallpaper!

Do you think what this teen did was offensive? Why?

Little douche.

I don't see what the big deal is...

If she has a sense of humor, she will love it! :D

It's not like she was shot and is dying while he takes a selfie.  Ha ha.  She's in labor.  It's not an emergency (well, in her case, it was a bit more serious since she was only 7 months pregnant).  

I think it is kind of cute.  How often does a teacher go into labor while you are in class?

I don't see the problem....I would laugh if one of my students caught me looking like that!

I think if she had been full term it would've been funny. Contractions at 7 months thinking she was in labor mustve been very scary and stressful.

LoL I would LOVE to have pictures of my face in the stages of labor, or false labor. I can only Imagine how my face looked when the same exact thing happened to be at 7months with my first!

She probably just didnt understand how braxton-hicks contractions would feel... Just like so many 1st time moms, or moms who didnt have them with previous labors.

I think this is funny
