(WAFF) -

A change.org petition is calling for the end of selfies.

The petition by Felicity Morse of London asks people to join the anti-selfie revolution and stop taking pictures of themselves.

Oxford English Dictionary named "selfie" the word of the year for 2013, bringing the phenomenon into popular culture.

Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar selfie "broke the internet" earlier this year, gaining 3,420,125 reteweets and nearly 2-million favorites. The picture included Hollywood stars like Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt.

But not everyone is on board with the selfie craze. According to the petition, "it was fine at first... but now enough is enough."

If you agree that the selfie is just over-done, you can click here (http://chn.ge/1jyKjfM) to sign the petition.
