Attention Millennials: Selfie Sticks Are Banned At Coachella
This year Coachella's organizers have put the hammer down and banned that despised yet somehow popular accessory of vanity: the selfie stick.As Brooklyn Vegan points out, the selfie stick appears on an extensive list of contraband that includes drones, drugs, fireworks, explosives, knives, weapons, and hula hoops. GoPros are cool, though.
