‘This is why social media was invented’: Girl takes epic selfie while being tackled by security

Oh my! The Internet is the best thing ever.

Yes, she did. And yes, it was. Twitter is buzzing over the hilarity.

Kayleigh Hill has now locked her Twitter account, deleted her side-splitting Vine video and deleted a tweet that indicated the epic moment was planned, but the Internet is forever. Other Twitter users captured it all for posterity, as Larry Brown Sports reported.

Twitter users can’t get enough of the best selfie evah.



Is this a new trend?

Not bad. But you need to be the one getting tackled.

Never change, social media.

    This is the new normal.

      Bread and circuses.

      • Pendog

        Probably gonna get a congratulatory tweet from FLOTUS.

  • Manny Laureano

    What morons.

  • stellatruman

    try that at Fenway…

  • Joe W.

    None of this makes any sense at all. At least not to THIS old man….Sigh…..

  • RblDiver

    *Sigh* The things people do for their 15min.

  • Maxx

    Someone must of told these blondes there was a diamond on the field.

    • Clete Torres

      I saw what you did there…

  • seemorejustice

    How pathetically narcissistic a nation we have become! Way to encourage Twitchy!

    • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

      My thoughts exactly. I guess I’ve become humorless in my old age (and I’m not really that old).

  • Lotte Lenya

    Yes, please, encourage bad behavior. I guess I’m a geezer because I don’t find this funny or brave.

  • 2ifbyT

    Given a choice of my daughters doing the same thing above or going on spring break someplace where who-knows-what they are doing and with whom (none of which any sane parent would approve), the above seems rather tame and innocent.

  • Clete Torres

    They aren’t even that attractive.

  • Bumr50

    I find the comments on this one interesting.

    I think it’s kind of funny!

    Then again, I’ve never lived in an era where the justice system actually made sense and following the rules paid off.

    Harmless fun, I say!

    A day or two of community service and a small fine w/ no permanent conviction should suffice, IMHO.

    PS – NOT a baseball fan, but know many baseball fans. SERIOUS these folks are. Hopefully the judge isn’t an alum of either school…

  • Yeah I Said It

    “Hey everybody!! Look at us!! We are doing something crazy!! Hahah! Aren’t we cool??”

    It’s bad enough we have to put up with attention whores like lady goo goo ga ga, we don’t need more.

  • ozconservative

    Do that in Australia and it’s a 10K fine and a lifetime ban. And an ass-whooping if Andrew Symonds is on the field.


    • ICOYAR

      To be honest, the streaker is the only thing I understand what is going on in that video.

    • thetreyman

      dude got rocked. ouch!

  • algonquinmatt

    It beats the hell out of the Comiskey Park alternative.

    ya know, when the drunk dad and his drunk son jump out of the stands and start beating up the first base coach for the other team?

    3 happy, healthy, fun loving blonde girls OR two sout’siders who hang out at bars with no lighting…. take your pick.

    • Clete Torres

      Yeah, the Comiskey Park alternative IS beating the hell out of (insert victim here). I remember that like it was yesterday. The white-trash perps sucker-punched the first base coach for the KC Royals. To this day, the man still has hearing problems.

      • Maus

        Now, we’ve all become Da Chicago States of America!

    • Caleb Herod

      Um, I’m pretty sure President Drone Strike renamed in Cominsky Field a while back. sheesh

  • r07a23c

    The real news is that something actually happened during a baseball game.

  • SpaceRacer423

    sure three blonde college girls do this and its called “funny & cute”
    but if I try it its called “creepy, weird & disgusting.”
    all because Im a dude……………who isn’t wearing pants………….and my be covered in honey…………

  • Stone Bryson

    Why is everyone here so down on this story? I think it’s hilarious, and the kind of stuff Twitchy should cover more often. It IS a site geared toward events on Twitter, after all; if they DIDN’T cover something this epic they wouldn’t be doing their jobs. Not everything has to be political, does it?

    Oh, did I mention ‘epic?’ Best selfie ever…

    • $27789750

      If this is what Twitchy covered more of, it would quickly lose most of us. Politics is why we come here. This frothy stuff can be found all over YouTube and a bunch of other places. Everything doesn’t have to be political but most of it had better be for Twitchy folks. :) Malkin knows this.

      • Stone Bryson

        OK, I can accept that, but since you said ‘everything doesn’t have to be political’ it’s a shame Twitchy readers can’t just lighten up for the rare fluff piece on here. Especially if it is a big deal on Twitter, which is the site that gives Twitchy its namesake.

        You’re probably right, though – with a few exceptions, people who come here seem driven primarily by politics. I don’t personally understand that, but live and let live. :-)

      • rinodino

        Yep her audience is old as dirt and right wing as hell, wth was she thinking?

  • © Sponge

    This is where it goes when everything has to be “kick ass and EXTREME!!!!!!!”

    I’m kinda tired of it, myself, but whatever.

  • RedSoloCup

    Obama voters?

    • ObamaFail

      Probably Wendy Davis supporters as well. Eventually, pro-abortion zealots are going to come up with a new thing where they go somewhere they aren’t supposed to be while pregnant and take a selfie as they get hit hard enough by security to miscarry

  • Maus

    Up ‘ere in Nee-braska, that’s a crime wave!!

  • http://www.freedomreconnection.com CO2 Producer

    It’s funny…once. Kind of hilarious, actually. But if this is the beginning of a thing, it’ll just become pathetic. We should treat this lady’s art (did you see the Vine/GIF?) as a singular work of beauty and not tarnish it with imitations.

  • DTM

    Why would Twitchy give her exactly what she wants – attention and publication?

  • mickeyco

    OK. I’ll admit I’m old, but I see nothing at all funny about this.

  • NeoKong

    Now that is funny.

  • TJ

    At least they are just doing selfie and causing mischief and not what Rick Monday had to deal with when someone ran on the baseball field in 1976, That time make come back and there will be flag burning in a field as a protest or a suicide bomber.


    • Clete Torres

      Rick Monday proved he was a Real American that day.

    • Caleb Herod

      Thanks for posting this video. Happy Independence Day!

  • GaryTheBrave

    Too bad they weren’t streakers. ;-D

    Also, can someone please tell @PlayboyEnergyCA that it is a baseball field, not a soccer pitch? smh

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      AMEN!! #RayStevens #MusicTriviaTime DON’T LOOK, ETHEL!! XD Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Dale Glenn

    It’s funny and original but will quickly be run into the ground just like everything else these days (planking, Harlem Shake, etc, etc).

    Being child of the 70s and 80s, I grew up seeing (but being too young to witness first hand) all of the streaking. Hell, there was even a hit song about it. This is no different, except we don’t have to see any doughy dudes running around football games with their junk hanging out.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    @Rob_Stott Baseball is played on a Diamond (-Shaped field)….Football is played on a Gridiron… #GeorgeCarlin SOCCER IS PLAYED ON A PITCH, NOT BASEBALL!!
    BTW, “I’ll break your Arm, you say ‘Who’s on first’….” #AbbottAndCostello XD LOL Jawamax 8<{D}


    The faces of intelligence.

    No doubt they voted for Obummer as well.

  • david martin

    Yeh, sure, it’s funny. And I hope the funny girls spend the next year picking up trash alongside the highway. Maybe they could post pictures!

  • radicallyalyssa

    While I appreciate cynicism, as I read the comments, I’ve realized a lot of you really need to develop a sense of humor….this is funny. It’s not hilarious, but c’mon. It’s funny. Why be so negative all the time?

  • DaMello

    I sense a new South Park episode to be made from this!

  • PeriMedic

    I’ve officially become a curmudgeonly old lady. I think interrupting people’s event for a self-indulgent 10minute of Internet fame is inconsiderate, immature, selfish…Not funny.

  • Caleb Herod

    I rarely give people down votes, but every single one of you squares deserves one.
