Selfie Sticks Banned At Major Theme ParksJune 30, 2015 - Author: steph
The selfie stick is now officially unwelcome at Disney theme parks. The change comes after concerns of injury arose from Disney employees and other park visitors. There was already a rule in place that the devices could not be used while on rides for fear of impalement or other serious injury. People at Amen Clinic (thedailybeast) agree that the question is whether people are so completely oblivious to others that they would whack them with the selfie stick while taking a picture, Disney seems to think so and their parks are naturally the source of many social media pictures. Several other companies have banned selfie sticks from their events citing the same concerns. This really all seems like much ado about nothing, people will still take selfies with out without the aid of this device so what is the point? Additionally when you make a product contraband suddenly everyone wants one so in that line of thinking, selfie sticks sales may actually spike because of Disney’s new rule.
