Al Roker Caused Outrage By Posting the Selfie on Twitter

NBC’s Al Roker has apologized after posting a selfie he took with two other members of his team in front of a crashed vehicle.  The driver was able to escape unharmed, but her car is clearly wrecked in the background.  A large chunk of the road had given way.  Roker said “we came to report and I offended those who had lost so much.  I am sorry.”

Roker and his team were on assignment in South Carolina, covering the record-breaking flooding.  Nine people have been killed, with over 20 inches of rain falling on parts of the state yesterday.  In one cemetery, coffins are rising to the surface after the massive rainfall.
