Just in case you forgot: It’s the year 2015. Selfies are not only totally acceptable, but they’re also kind of encouraged, having been added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary and the subject of some very timeless literature (we see you, Kim Kardashian).
Which is why people are kind of up in arms after sports announcers at an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game “shamed” these sorority girls for doing, well, what literally millions of people do everyday.

The announcers are pretty ruthless towards the girls, who are members of Alpha Chi Omega at Arizona State University.
In the video, which has since gone viral, one of them quips, “That’s the best one of the 300 pictures I’ve taken of myself today!”

And while the ~people of the Internet~ seem to be pretty split between “OMG! I hate my generation,” “Get off my lawn!” and “Leave the sorority girls alone!” — the students in the controversial video seem to be taking the whole thing in stride.
The classy ladies took to Facebook to respond to the “media frenzy” they caused and asked that the many people who offered tickets to the young women donate them to a local non-profit that helps support victims of domestic violence instead.
