This Selfie Has Terrified Thousands (Photos)


A creepy selfie of a couple posted March 28 has disturbed thousands on social media.

The photo features a smiling couple, with the woman’s reflection making her look as if she has two faces, the Daily Mail reports.

The image was originally posted on which allows people to edit photos and share them on Twitter, as user @itsthemans did with the caption, “ 'What kinda devlish ting is going on?”

In three days, it had been shared more than 16,000 times.

At first, many were confused what the big deal was. Yet when they looked closely, they were overcome with fear.

“I’m so scared right now I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep tonight,” one user said, while another compared the image to fictional Harry Potter villain, Lord Voldemort.

“OH! OMG, that's like Voldemort in the Sorcerer's Stone (turban and everything basically),” the user exclaimed.

Others were skeptical.

“Bunch of fools really NOT paying attention. It's a gag and even says so in the picture!” one user wrote.

Others speculate that perhaps it was a scarf or another couple was taking a photo through the window.

Still, nobody knows for sure what the real story behind the spooky selfie is.

It’s not the first unusual selfie to capture international attention in March 2016.

A 26-year-old British man, Ben Innes, and a flight attendant, Naira Atef, took selfies with their EgyptAir A320 jet hijacker March 29, The Telegraph reports.

"I'm not sure why I did it -- I just threw caution to the wind while trying to stay cheerful in the face of adversity,” Innes said.

"I figured if his bomb was real I'd have nothing to lose anyway, so took a chance to get closer and look at it," Innes added. "So I stood by him and smiled for the camera while a stewardess did the snap. It has to be the best selfie ever.”

The hijacker, 58-year-old Seif al-Din Mohamed Mostafa, held the plane captive over his ex-wife with what was later revealed to be a fake suicide belt.
