Wasn't that 200,00 bucks of damage? She was taking a selfie by the way.
The pedestals should have been secured, but really? You really had to kneel in there and lose your balance for a dumb picture?
@OrphanCrippler44, welcome to the 21st century you must be new here, here in the 21st century people crave attention more than food, water, or any other necessities and a picture of yourself next to something expensive gets you more attention
@OrphanCrippler44, wasn't a selfie though. Her friend was taking the Pic. She tried to kneel and lost her balance.
@OrphanCrippler44, that gallery was actually a selfie gallery. They encouraged selfies. Basically it's 100% the gallery's fault. And the price tag was just that, the art wasn't actually worth $200,000 it was just collectively priced at around $200,000.
@OrphanCrippler44, $200,000.00 according to the artist, so probably around 100 normal person dollars
@OrphanCrippler44, yes. But the artist was cool about it and didn't charge her or anything. And when asked if he'd take better precautions in the future he said something along the lines of "if you make something idiot proof, nature will just make better idiots"
Your fault for stacking them like dominos
@Dexios S Divine, Basically asking to be pushed over
@Xanyok, wait is this a rape joke?
@Xanyok, well there is a lot of people basically asking to be punched in the face but you don't see me swinging.
@Jawwanaman, wait is this an assumption?
I was half hoping the pedestals would start falling back on the next row like dominos.
