If you hate selfies, you have one thing in common with Prince Harry. The royal appeared at an event in Australia Monday, and a BBC video caught him rejecting a teen girl's request to take a selfie with him. "No, I hate selfies," he said, and after she and her friends laughed, he continued, "Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you're young, but selfies are bad. Just take a normal photograph." Anti-selfie activists quickly lauded the move, the New York Daily News reports. (Click for a slideshow of a bunch of celebrities who don't hate selfies.)
