Sunday,  NBC weatherman Al Roker apologized for tweeting a smiling selfie of himself and some colleagues amidst the destruction in South Carolina.

Using a collapsed highway and a car that had careened off the road as his backdrop, Roker tweeted an image of himself and two NBC co-workers with the caption, “My crew and I getting ready to report on East Coast flooding from S. Carolina on @NBCNightlyNews with Kate Snow.”

The tweet was later removed after fans commented that posing for jovial snapshots amidst so much wreckage was both tacky and insensitive.
