Do you know who invented the selfie? According to Paris Hilton, it was...wait for it...Paris Hilton! On this day, 11 years ago, Paris claims that her and Britney Spears heroically ventured onto uncharted territory, turning the camera on themselves, and making the selfie the disastrous part of life that it is today.
As expected, Paris's statement was met with its fair share of people challenging her claim. There's Bill Nye the Selfie Guy from 1999.
There's Sabrina the Teenage Witch in 1996.
There's Kramer's accidental discovery during a 1995 episode of Seinfeld.
There's Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis in 1991's Thelma & Louise.
There's George Harrison in 1966.
All of these examples are meant to prove that Paris cannot take credit for inventing the selfie because there are, at least, dozens of other people who have a more effective argument. Plus, they have the selfies to prove it.
