Florida Student Takes Viral Selfie With Teacher Having Contractions in Background

Susana Halleck's photo went viral after her student shared it on Twitter.
Self-taken photos are -- as a general rule -- of no use or interest to anyone but the narcissistic subject. From the era of Myspace angle shots to the age of the Instagram duck face, this has been a true, verifiable fact. A Florida high school student has just shattered the time-tested rule, though, by photobombing his teacher, with great results. The TwitPic captioned "selfie with my teacher while she having contractions" went absolutely viral since it was posted earlier this week.

Susana Halleck isn't due until December 15, according to her Facebook page, but she began having contractions while teaching class this past Tuesday. A junior at Coral Springs Charter School, in an act of either mischief of Schadenfreude, decided it was the perfect opportunity for self-promotion.

The image's foreground shows a Lil Wayne look-alike grinning widely, wearing sunglasses inside for reasons unexplained. The background features the boy's business teacher as she calls her mother and makes a pained expression, according to Local 10.

Malik Whiter's photo, which was retweeted internationally, is extraordinary in its simultaneous capturing of joy and misery. But is it cruel? At least one person yesterday questioned the student's integrity for sharing the photo, although the vast majority of Twitterers are hailing it as a classic of the selfie genre.

Although Whiter told Local 10 he was merely trying to capture an important moment in the life of a great teacher, taking the photo was probably a dick move. And the moment he captured didn't turn out to be so important after all. Halleck went to the hospital but did not deliver, and she was back teaching yesterday.

"...in an act of either mischief of Schadenfreude, ..." or what? Don't leave us hanging.

Maybe she should have gone to Delio Photo Studio for her Maternity Shots instead of having this picture come out. Wednesday specials at a 50% Off! Check it out

This lady is suffering and having a medical emergency and he takes a selfie. Geez, what a shallow sick dude. Next he'll take selfies at car accident scenes with people missing their limbs. Our nation is doomed cuz once the govt can't borrow and give away money, austerity will hit and bye bye like the USSR.

The day of the week he posted this picture was part of Spirit Week, where students were able to dress as any music genre or music artist. this explains the reason why Malik was wearing glasses and a hat. otherwhise, the student wouldn't had been able to wear these things.

Its a protected 1st Amendment right that all Americans enjoy even if you don't like it . Seems some don't agree all Americans deserve that right.

lmao, funny as hell..... people don't forget he is a teenager and most of them are self centered and clueless, I don't think his intentions were to hurt this teacher it was just thoughtless and stupid but funny too, lol

There are definitely times when a selfie is not appropriate. And this is definitely not one of them.

Why is this newsworthy? The fact that articles like this are published is the reason why I cannot take Miami New Times seriously.

@Tommy having a contraction is not a 'medical emergency', not by a long shot.  Nothing the student or anyone else could do at this point except let the teacher continue her phone conversation in peace.

@Kenny DeLucia The 1st Amendment allows free speech against the government without the threat of legal punishment.

It does not guarantee that you can say or do anything without being criticized for it.

@Billy Corben there are times when selfies ARE appropriate?


He's a kid having fun. It's fine.

@Susana Navajas,

As long as you remain in "America", you'll never be the only one in embracing degeneracy. There are 310 million other douche bags just like you who have fully acclimated themselves to a severely sick society. The entertainment you all provide as you immolate yourselves like a self cleansing fecal stain is priceless. Thanks.

@ktgraham99 @Tommy  Really??? She looks in agony to me. Get real, this isn't how one should act. Clowning around instead of being concerned then posted the photo. I mean, it is a private moment for the lady having a medical emergency. The lady went to the hospital you idiot, so yes, it was a medical emergency...she didn't go to her doctors office...she went to the hospital. Get a clue.

@irlandes63 please explain what about this is "douchbaggery."


You people need to fucking relax and find some calm(er) friends.

@Tommy you really need to relax and step outside.  From a junior in HS (remember when YOU were a kid?) taking a selfie in class you gather that he'll be doing it at car accidents and go the way of the USSR?  


Your brain needs a filing system.
