There are things you do and things you don’t do. For example, you do eat five slices of pizza while sitting on the floor in your underwear after the bar, but you don’t ever mention that it happened to anyone because they would judge you (despite the fact that everyone does it). You do sit in your bathroom sink picking at your blackheads for hours on end, but you don’t tell your boyfriend about it because he would be grossed out. You do give a few bucks to the homeless guy sitting outside in the shivering cold, but you don’t take a picture of him and post it to Instagram. Again, things you do and things you don’t do. Though, apparently, the last one was too much for a Vogue editor to understand.
Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis (yes, that is her real name), a German royal and style editor at Vogue, decided that it would be all sorts of “hilahhhrious, dahhlingggg” if she took a pic of a homeless man in Paris who was reading Vogue and then posted it to Instagram. You know, like he was a zoo animal or something.
The photo was taken down a few hours after she posted it, though not before many, many screen grabs were taken. Rightfully so, people flipped a shit on her in the comments.

Vogue has yet to release a comment but, like, seriously? I’d say that was in pretty awful taste. .
