A woman’s obsession for selfie went terribly wrong when she fell backward causing damage of $200,000 at the 14th Factory pop-up gallery in Los Angeles. The video of the incident has gone viral on social media. A Hong Kong-based artist, Simon Birch was displaying his exhibition in the museum, which shows valuable crowns placed on pedestals of varying heights. Thus, it came as no shock when a woman attempts to take selfie and it went wrong, pedestals that were kept in series fell.

Mr Birch has stated that the video is true and the incident took place nearly two weeks ago. The estimated amount of damage according to him was $200,000. The artist became philosophical saying that crowns are the symbol of power and it is ironic that they fell. He went on to say that even after this incident, he won’t request visitors to be careful as they trust people.
