Breanna Mitchell's irreverence goes viral. Breanna doesn't care. Good for Breanna.
Typically self-involved teenager Breanna Mitchell tweeted this pic during a recent trip to Europe. And predictably the twitter-verse exploded with criticism and condemnation.
I don't see what the big deal is. She's what, 17? You're not allowed to smile, ever, if standing on concentration-camp grounds? This happened 75 years ago, not last week. What is she supposed to do, tweet a weeping selfie? Or a "frownie"? Or how about no selfie at all? It's 2014 people, get over yourselves.
Of course Breanna's reaction to the outrage directed at her embodies the delightful irreverence you'd expect from a teenage girl.
"Like apparently it's such a big deal that I smiled. Good Lord."
I'm with you Breanna.
