There are some places where selfies just aren’t appropriate – and Al Roker has found this out the hard way.

The NBC weatherman has apologized for snapping a grinning selfie in front of the devastation caused by catastrophic weather in South Carolina.

The “Today” personality tweeted a photo of himself and NBC colleagues wearing rain gear and smiling in front of a portion of collapsed highway and a wrecked car.


Roker apologized and deleted the pic after he Twitter dragged him for being insensitive.

“We came down to report and I offended those who lost so much. I am sorry,” Roker added.

Should he have had to apologize or are we too sensitive?
