Here's What Happened After Paris Hilton Said She Invented Selfies

Twitter was not having it.

Paris Hilton seems serious about having invented the selfie.

The socialite made the claim earlier this year, telling W magazine, "If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it. I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera."

Hilton took to Twitter this week to remind fans of her impact on pop culture, posting a throwback pic of her and Britney Spears from 2006 and writing in the caption, "11 years ago today, Me & Britney invented the selfie!"

Unfortunately for Paris, not everyone agreed with her claim; Twitter users flocked to her tweet to share proof of other celebs who had taken selfies prior to 2006, including Madonna and Melissa Joan Hart, People reports.

Sorry, Paris. It looks like your selfie joke didn't quite land.
