Citing a pair of photos taken in 2006, Hilton tweeted that she and Britney Spears were the first people ever to point a camera lens inward to snap a photo of themselves.
"11 years ago today, Me & Britney invented the selfie!" she wrote.
Twitter users didn't even focus on how god-awful the pics are. Instead, they collectively called bullshit on Hilton's dubious claim and bombarded her with famous selfies that well predate the year 2006.
Sorry, Paris. Maybe next time you should do a little research. If you want to take credit for the first belfie, however, that's probably still up for grabs.
