We have all had embarrassing moments in our life but this turned out to be an embarrassing as well as a costly moment for this girl. Humiliating events so cringe-inducing that we remember them for the rest of our lives.
In the video below we can see the women losing her balance while trying to click a photo, this resulted in her stumbling and knocking down the art works worth nearly $200,000. The mishap occurred at Hypercaine, an exhibit put on by the 14th Factory Art Exhibition, a nonprofit, indie, a temporary art project that’s currently going on in LA. The pieces were reported “permanently damaged” after the works crashed to the ground.
Here’s a description of Hypercaine provided by 14th Factory:
Inside a serene space, singular objects rest on plinths: these are crowns, or at least some semblance of what a crown might be, presented as precious trophies or boons. Some are classic in form, intricately crafted while others are very simple in design, as though rendered from a child’s drawing. Others have more elaborate forms: alien, hybrid, they are at times even contorted into inhibiting devices, somewhere between a crown and a mask. Some are fashioned from precious materials like gold or silver, some of the marble; others of more humble material like wood, nylon, scrap metal, or dried herbs and flowers. These are variously imagined forms of the goods of desire that we journeyers hope to gain, the boon that awaits us when we have come through the battle. Flanking the crown room is a small, intimate space, inhabited by a collection of actual meteorite stones, modest in appearance but holding within them the secrets of the universe.
Twitter was obviously loving the situation:
This is what its like to have kids.

There were some netizens who thought it wasn’t the woman’s fault and others who strongly disagreed.
But it's her fault

Ok so we are going to setup the $200,000 art pieces on unfastened, unprotected pedestals. Don't worry, what could go wrong? https://t.co/77bcPqb8Vb

This is the video showing the woman knocking down the $200,000 worth of art. It honestly looks like something straight out of a cartoon.
