Cara Delevingne threw an enormous tantrum during a Eurostar security check


As many of you know, I’m not a believer in Cara Delevingne. I can’t wait for her to go the way of Agyness Deyn, which is to say… mostly forgotten. I’ve long believed that she’s probably nothing more than an unprofessional brat, and I even have some evidence to back it up. But did you know that she’s also an incredibly privileged white woman who freaks out in train stations during routine security checks? And what’s amazing to me is that she had a full-fledged temper tantrum and nothing really happened to her. She was detained briefly and let go. Here’s what went down:

Cara Delevingne was detained for more than an hour after a four-letter “meltdown” at Eurostar security staff. Onlookers say the model acted like a “spoiled brat” as she erupted in fury on her way from Paris to London for her sister Poppy’s birthday bash. The bizarre incident was sparked as her luggage was pulled aside for a random check. As she swore at the officer and his colleague, the 23-year-old got down on her knees and pretended to pray she would be allowed to board the train quickly. But she calmed down and later apologized as she emerged from an interrogation room an hour later with red eyes as if she had been crying.

An onlooker said: “It was a full-on meltdown in the middle of security. There were at least 20 people around and she didn’t seem to care who saw. It was like she thought she didn’t have to abide by the same rules as everyone else just because she’s famous. Cara was with a friend who was trying to calm her down, but it wasn’t working. She shouted ‘let him do his f**king job, it’s ridiculous.’ She got down on her knees and put her hands together as if she was praying for the whole thing to be over. It was bizarre.”

A French security source told The Sun many officers are fed up with celebrities acting as if they are above the law. He said: “Famous people often [don’t] seem to think the same rules apply to them as everyone else. But everyone is subject to the same security procedures regardless of how well known they are. Sometimes celebrities will behave as if they are above the law and will be rude for no reason. They need to learn they have to be treated the same as everyone else.”

After the model-turned-actress swore profusely at the first officer, another came over to try to calm the situation. But Cara began using her phone, despite signs saying it was not allowed, and took exception to being told to put it away. She screamed “F–k you” at a female officer before being detained and taken upstairs to a private room away from stunned passengers. Cara, who was dressed in casual bottoms and a top, emerged an hour later with red eyes, which made passengers think she had broken down in tears during the interrogation. But after calming down, she apologized profusely to the officers and was able to board the next train. She escaped with a fine for verbal assault.

[From Page Six]

First of all… do you think she was carrying? I think she was carrying, and that’s why she had the meltdown. It was a well-timed hissy fit to distract security personnel from looking too closely at her baggage, so they wouldn’t find her stash. That’s my theory. As for the privilege of being a bitchy, sullen, aristocratic white woman… imagine if someone named Mohammed or Jamal had behaved that way to train station security. It would be a completely different story.

    What a brat! Grow up

    • Kimbers says:

      Maybe she’s really constipated and it’s driving her crazy? Her resting face is the uptight constipated face you see people joke about all the time…maybe it’s a medical issue we should be sensitive about? Maybe she hasnt pooped since 2011? Eat fiber girl! For the love of the paps eat fiber!!!

      • Laura says:

        If the latest round of pill commercials has taught me anything, it’s that opioid constipation is a serious issue. I like your idea! Put down the drugs and pick up some broccoli girl!

    • Birdix says:

      Yes, she should know better, that was silly.. But I will say that 2 summers ago, I went with my then 7 year old on the Eurostar. In the security line, with oddly inappropriate glee, the guard tore her bag apart. Pulled out her special blanket, held it to his face and sniffed it(!), grabbed her hedgehog stuffed animal and completely manhandled it (presumably trying to figure if something was hidden inside?), leafed through her all her books one by one. I stood watching stunned, then realized that she had huge tears silently rolling down her face. A supervisor (who was female) also noticed and came over and reassigned him and we put the bag back together and moved on. it was really odd.

  2. CornyBlue says:

    While I do like Cara and if it is true this is such horrible behavior, it is the Sun reporting this and if I have learnt anything in time online it is not to trust the Sun.

  3. Bettyrose says:

    Carrying? This sounds like her entire stash went up her nose that morning.

    • Santia says:

      Both! That’s what immediately came to mind as well, that she had drugs in the bag that she didn’t want them to find (and apparently didn’t).

    • Don't kill me I'm French says:

      At this point,the security check doesn’t care if you have a few of drug in your baggage .They care if you have many money or drugs.

    • C says:

      My thoughts too.

  4. InvaderTak says:

    What is it tantrum day? Get grips people. Glad security didn’t let her off.

  5. anniefannie says:

    Like Kaiser I think she was carrying too! If I’d been security I would assume that I needed to go thru her luggage like a fine tooth….so if it worked , I’m mystified!

  6. Kelly says:

    With the whole cult of celebrity growing, it seems celebs nasty and entitled behavior is accelerating.

  7. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    Carrying, had plenty in her bloodstream, and probably a few nuggets up her nose.

    That’s not a normal reaction, even a normal tantrum reaction, sounds like Privelage and guilt mixed together and I’m sure just like Paris Hilton’s douche brother she got to leave and go on about her business because she’s white and wealthy.

  8. serena says:

    Not surprised. She should have been put away for a couple of days, at least.

  9. CidySmiley says:

    God, people like this bother me so much. I worked in customer service for so long that I know the best way to judge people: by the way they treat CS workers.

    • zinjojo says:

      I agree, I think the way people treat others in less powerful positions is very telling. It’s easy to be polite and courteous and it makes everything run much more smoothly in general, and it’s such a nicer way to live.

      I travel on business a lot and feel like I’m the queen of the random security check — frequently getting the full pat down or my hands swabbed. I don’t love it ever, but try to be as pleasant as possible in order to not create problems for myself and move along as quickly as possible.

      • Bettyrose says:

        zinjojo..I sign off on everything you said. Making a fuss only causes delays and ensures everyone around you has a worse day. In some rare cases, making a fuss is necessary, but standard security checks are just the world we live in. I used to travel frequently with a bf who (although a total sweetie) had a huge build and a menacing look. I’m fairly petite but they’d always let him through and search me. I figure they thought I was his patsy or something. Anyway, I just accepted it as a good story I would tell later.

  10. Maria says:

    she always seemed to be mentally unstable. i hope she has people in her life to get her some help.

    • GNAT has taken the last good name says:

      no you are too nice it s aristocratic entitlement sisterly problem…
      her sister played it spoiled rotten and threat a security man with being fired because she wasn t granted entrance in vip event

  11. Lindy79 says:

    If true, did she really think kicking off at security checking trains entering a city that was hit with a horrible terrorist attack a few months ago, was a good idea?
    Celeb or not, you just let those people do their jobs and shut the hell up.

  12. Talie says:

    Well, she’s not getting as much attention now that she has given up modeling — that kept her relevant more.

  13. Zuzus girl says:

    Silly little brat. Pat her down and make her miss the next train. She and her eyebrows need to take a seat.

  14. Green Is Good says:

    Entitled , rich, and a coke fiend. A bad combo.

  15. guest says:

    I don’t understand why she’s even a model…or maybe it’s her attitude. A horrible attitude can make someone really unattractive in my opinion.

  16. Leah says:

    ” imagine if someone named Mohammed or Jamal had behaved that way to train station security. It would be a completely different story.”


    • TJ says:

      I think if someone like Tyra Banks or Naomi Campbell had acted this way, they wouldn’t have been called ‘an entitled black woman’. The double standards are ridiculous and why does skin color come up in every single article I read now?

      • Jaded says:

        Because Mohammed or Jamal could be terrorists. Male terrorists. This has nothing to do with skin colour or double standards, merely that a rich, snotty little brat can’t pull the “don’t you know who I am!?!?” card.

      • Lindsey says:


        This story shouldn’t have been about race at all. Just a entitled, young woman who needs a dose of reality.

      • Mimi says:

        “she’s also an incredibly privileged white woman”
        So, we are making this a “race” issue? Naomi Campbell ring a bell? I think those two are possibly soul mates. A stupid scene like this does not fit any kind of racial agenda. CD is simply a nasty human being who has no respect for anyone. The end…

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        No, they wouldn’t have been called an entitled black woman. The article would have simply be littered with racist microaggressions that people casually accept as normal all in an effort to remind you that Tyra = black = bad.

        They probably would have lowered the brightness to make her skin tone appear darker, chose a picture where she has her mouth open and looks crazy and used plenty of code words to get around the term ‘angry black woman’ while making sure everyone knew exactly what they meant.

        Skin color comes up everywhere else in life, I’m always impressed by the people who didn’t notice it till now.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        @TJ: THIS!!! Not sure why the article felt the need to mention she was a white woman as if it was something to be ashamed of?

      • Renee says:

        If Tyra or Naomi acted like that they’d be called angry or ghetto so let’s not act white women are held to some different standard. It’s ridiculous for you pretend white people aren’t treated differently when traveling or just in general. You must be living in some fantasy, colorblind world.

      • Mimi says:

        “No, they wouldn’t have been called an entitled black woman. The article would have simply be littered with racist microaggressions that people casually accept as normal all in an effort to remind you that Tyra = black = bad.”
        Sigh… Contrary to what seems to be popular belief around here, most of us are too smart to buy into a “black=bad” rhetoric. Too observant to form opinions of people based on their color rather than their character. And wise enough to know the difference.

      • Leah says:

        “Because Mohammed or Jamal could be terrorists.”
        Really? So everyone named Mohammed or Jamal should be suspected of terrorism by default.
        This type of comment has everything to do with “skin colour or double standards”. I hope you are kidding.

      • bluhare says:

        A man of color was pulled off a flight recently because a passenger thought his math equations were Arabic and equated that with him being a terrorist, Using that as an example I think it is very likely that a Muslim looking man would have had a very different experience than Cara Delavigne. I thought that was the point. Did I miss the real one?

      • Starkiller says:

        I can’t speak for every article you read, but it was brought up in this one because it’s relevant to the story. In fact, it’s probably the only reason she’s not sitting in jail right now.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Because being black doesn’t make you feel entitled? Because “entitled white woman” means she felt entitled to breeze through security because she was white, something a black woman would probably not feel? Because you don’t get stopped in your nice car for driving while white? There are privileges associated with being white that don’t come with being any other race, and you either know that and are being deliberately blind, or you’re just blind.

      • nicegirl says:

        I feel you, TJ. I was wondering that myself. I’m white, and I’ve never felt ‘entitled’. I also don’t like any type of racism. It’s ok to talk sh-t about white women, i guess. I get it now. If I’m (born, without my control) white, I had better keep my behavior in check, lest I become an entitled white chick. I do not appreciate this gal acting hideously, but really, is it because she is white? Maybe she is just a rich bi-ch.

      • Mimi says:

        “Because “entitled white woman” means she felt entitled to breeze through security because she was white”,.
        I call bs on this. Her sense of entitlement most likely has nothing to do with the color of her skin and everything to do with her financial and celebrity status.

      • DTX says:

        @nicegirl. Don’t worry, no one is asking you to keep YOUR behavior in check. POC on this thread are just lamenting how much WE have to keep our behavior in check, bc we certainly couldn’t pull this off. What we are LOLing at is posters like you and TJ commenting and seriously saying “double standards” when honestly…how in the world would you even know what other people experience?

      • Naya says:

        Some people on this thread are being so ridiculous, I have to bekieve its intentional trolling. If a man or woman with middle eastern appearance pulled this, they would not have been allowed to board. There are plenty of extremely wealthy and even spoiled young arabs but they KNOW that doing this can get them barred from continuing with their journey or arrested or put on a “list” or even shot by some trigger happy profiler.

        FYI, they dont even have to be middle eastern, just having the wrong skin colour like a SE Asian or name is enough. This womans whiteness obviously shields her from certain “repercussions” of acting this way at a security check.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:


        You being smarter than that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen, it does, often and repeatedly with examples that can be pointed to this year alone.


        A white woman had a meltdown at a place with heightened security in an area that’s experienced a terrorist attack and walked away scot free. Why that encourages you to feel victimized because of people pointing out the injustice there I’m not sure.

    • DTX says:

      Agreed! And @Leah, my husband has an Arabic name and constantly gets pulled for “random checks” so yeah. I imagine its not something you’re familiar with. Jaded wasn’t stating that as an opinion but more like a messed up reality. My hubby and I were traveling back to the states from Europe recently and his electric razor blew out while we were there because we got a low grade outlet converter, so he had a full on beard when we were coming back to match his olive skin and green eyes….you can imagine what hell we went through at the London and American airports. Or then again, maybe you can’t….

      He certainly couldn’t have pulled a Cara Dela…whatever or Conrad Hilton, hmmm…. I wonder why??????

      • Mimi says:

        “my husband has an Arabic name and constantly gets pulled for “random checks” so yeah. I imagine its not something you’re familiar with”.
        My family and I have flown 3 times in the past two years. I was pulled for a random check on two of those flights. My husband was pulled on the other one. At this point, I am kind of surprised thy haven’t wanted to do a random check on my 10 year old. By the way, we are white.

      • nicegirl says:

        @DTX, thank you, kindly. Right back at ya. Even, “How in the world would YOU even know what other people experience?”

        I’ve actually never ‘breezed’ through security myself – nor expected preferential treatment, because of my whiteness (or any other reason). But again, that’s just me. How would someone else know what I experience, right?

        I take issue with racism – I don’t feel ‘above’ anyone, or that anyone else is ‘lesser’. I also don’t need anyone projecting their issues on me – and no worries, I’m good on my behavior. I never assume anything about a person based on their skin color. But, as it happens in this world, it has also happened to me. I understand that does not hold as much weight as when it happens to someone who is not white, and I understand the history of racism. I just do not think we should make everything a ‘white’ issue. Folks are rich, folks are stupid, folks are callous, evil, angry, unjust, criminal – all PEOPLE can be that way, regardless of skin color.

      • DTX says:

        @Mimi & Nicegirl.

        Your husband has an arabic name, too? Cool. And yes, I’m SURE you’ve been subjected to as many “random checks” as my husband and I have. No where did I say you expect preferential treatment, I bet we could agree that we both just expect equal treatment, right? We fly waaaay more than 1.5 times a year, if that helps put it into context for you. We traveled through 5 countries last month (4 in Europe plus the US) and the only place we didn’t get stopped was in Spain, I’m Latina btw. We didn’t complain, we complied, as one should. I am simply commenting on the fact that we couldn’t have pulled off the same tantrums that “non-targeted” people do. And it’s not just the rich Cara’s of the world who act stupid and get away with it, two weeks ago I was in the midwest and was quite amused watching a very large white woman in a wheelchair throwing a fit and refusing to check her heavy bag at the gate and telling the airline staff to go waste their time on the real criminals! And they actually let her board with her bag! Ha! Imagine seeing that and having recently had an airline employee yell at your child for attempting to board the plane with a geological rock in his bag from a science fossil expo. Whether or not you want to acknowledge it, there ARE in fact double standards for certain people sometimes. I wish it wasn’t so, but that’s the way it is, as much as you or I don’t like it. When I see stuff like this in the news, it just reminds me and makes me SMH. Just because you’re white and have been stopped on occasion, when it seems like you don’t even travel much…I’m not sure how you could even equate our experiences, honestly.

      • Josefina says:

        I can agree with what you said upthread about Cara’s entitlement coming from her fame and fortune and not necessarily her skin color. But acting like prejudice based on skin color is a thing of the past is very ignorant. Skin color still plays a role in this situations.

      • Mimi says:

        I never meant to imply that your husband’s ethnicity had nothing to do with him being pulled aside for random checks. It may have very possibly been a factor. I don’t agree with that at all. It isn’t fair to him. The fact that my family doesn’t travel much actually lends itself to the point I was trying to make. The less you travel, the less chance you have of being subjected to a random check, right? But, it happens to us every time. So, yes we are very “familiar” with the process.
        I am very aware that prejudice, bigotry, and racism are alive and kicking as we speak. I am simply of the mind that not everything is a race issue. This post, for example, took a story about an entitled snot acting like an entitled snot and put a racist spin on it. There is simply no need for it. She was a woman who was apprehended for acting like a fool. If they had allowed her to continue acting that way and done nothing, then I might agree with the narrative being expressed here. That’s not what happened, so I don’t.

      • Josefina says:

        Well the situation happened within the context of a check up at a train station. A terrorist attack happened in France not so long ago. There’s tremendous racial tension in Europe right now and these regular, every-day events become perfect examples of different treatment of races. We can’t complain about the way non-whites are treated, without studying the way they treat whites as well. And well, this is what happens when a white famous model is checked and she throws a tantrum. Now let’s compare it to an arabic non-famous guy throwing a tantrum at a train station. Will people think he’s a little brat, or that he’s carrying a bomb?

        It gets tiring when everything is analyzed from a racial point. But race plays a role in pretty much everything. So people are in the right to analyze. If this discussion tires you – you can stay away from it. I do that fairly often. But don’t tell people they shouldn’t discuss it or that they are wrong for analyzing this from that perspective.

      • sunnydaze says:

        with regard to racial profiling, I was with a bunch of co-workers flying out of Baltimore, MD a few months ago when I got pulled aside and told I was ok to go through “expedited” security. Got to keep my shoes on and everything, it was nuts. My other co-worker was also selected, and when I looked at the line I noticed all the people going through expedited (there were about 15 of us in the lines), we were all white. My other 7 co-workers (not selected) were all black. As we went through and waited on the other side for everyone else we noticed almost everyone coming from the regular line was a POC and absolutely everyone coming through expedited was white. It’s a real thing. Statistically there should have been several people of color if it was random, but somehow that didn’t happen….hmm

      • Jess says:

        Thanks for sharing your experiences.

      • ladysussex says:

        I have also been selected for “random security checks” in airports all over Europe, and once in Chicago. I’m a white woman with blonde hair/blue eyes, and work as a teacher. Go figure.

  17. Rainbow says:

    Of course the reaction would be different if someone named Jamal of Mohammed behaved that way.
    I am a white woman but I am not privileged and famous and if I behaved like that I would be in jail. Mohammed or Jamal maybe they would be dead.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Yeah, if you or me did it we would be in jail. Muhamed would be dead. Yet people like Cara and the Hilton kid walk away free.

    • aurelia says:

      I totally believe jamal in paris right now at a train or airport, refusing security and acting like that would be dead. Paris / Belgium are on ultra high alert. Agreed too, people just saw a bratty, skinny, white chick, with a posh english voice , dressed like trustafarian slumming it, having a tantrum. The arab guy doing the same would have been viewed with distain and fear.

      Cara came out of the interogation room crying because they told this little snot what the repercusions would be next time is she pulled this chite.

  18. swak says:

    I don’t care who you are, the security is there to protect you. Let them go through your things quickly and go on your way. Pretty much if you’re nice, they’ll be nice. Cop an attitude and all hell usually breaks loose. I just don’t get why people are so offended. If you’re carrying something illegal, then that’s on you.

    • mom2two says:

      This. Security has a job to do. Let them do it.

      Cara has always been overrated and untalented.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      So true. Not only was she making their jobs difficult and being a brat. She was making the process longer for everyone else waiting to get through.,ugh. I have no patience for this.

  19. Eleonor says:

    I live in France right now, and with everything has happened I cannot comment otherewise I’ll be banned. Period.

  20. QQ says:

    Wow so Mama really was pressed about her stash Huh? She was willing to take that L rather than be searched?? But yeah correct let that stunt be pulled by a brown person, forget getting “a reputation”, you’d have to end up alive first for that to happen

    • aurelia says:

      I think she couldn’t remember if she still had drugs in her bag. After she came out of the interogation room and they searched the hell out of her bag she was just relived she removed her coke afterall. I have this vision of her the security guys telling her if she came to Gard du Nord station again pulling this they would shoot now and ask questions later. Sure, there would be an investigation but the cop would get off. She bawled for her mummy after that.

  21. ell says:

    nah, if she were carrying we would know by now.

    and yes, i’m not a believer either and i don’t like her very much. both cara and her sister are known to throw tantrums when things don’t go their way. just for the record though, agyness deyn has had something of a come back in the last year in britain…

  22. sparkle says:

    didn’t read the article because i can’t get past those eyebrows. not a fan of pencil-thin either, but somewhere in the middle ….

  23. meme says:

    spoiled entitled brat. too many idiots are becoming “celebrities” these days.

  24. Magnoliarose says:

    Her behavior is a classic snow induced breakdown. She’s a hard living model with bad party habits on Naomi Campbell/Kate Moss level. I wouldn’t be surprised if rehab is down the road.

  25. Maleficent says:

    I don’t understand why people want to act like racism doesn’t exist. “Why bring up race at all?” Because…um…racism.

    • BunnyBear says:

      Thank you. I like this website because usually the commenters are pretty enlightened but those comments make me so angry. One is bad enough but then all the other people who reply “THIS!!” and “x1000!!” just make me sad. We bring up race because it applies to the situation? Why does that bother people so much?

    • says:

      I think that those commenters never said that racism does not exist. Just that not everything is about racism.

  26. Cynthia says:

    Cara being bratty, what’s new? Totally unrelated but what happened to her modeling career? She basically bad mouthed the industry that made her famous when she could have been a part-time actress while still modeling.

    • aurelia says:

      Cara thiks she is a serious act-or now. She announced sometime in 2015 that she was over modelling, she was beyond that and for everybody to brace themselves because she was coming to a theatre near you soon. LOLZ, she had one part in a fluff movie where she was playing a character that required not that much of a stretch away from herself. When she gets given a role beyond 2D she will go the way of madge post Desp Seeking Susan. I see this chick as Icarus. I’, waiting for her wings to melt.

  27. Cookiejar says:

    Ah yes the “you know who I am?” card.

    I don’t work in security, but I’d be able to flash my “I have no clue who you are. Shut up” card. And the “if you’re flagged for a random inspection, you have to comply or you will not travel” card.

    And if she had “extras” in her luggage, she better learn to buy after traveling. If she’s such a bigshot “celebrity”, shouldn’t she have French contacts to tell her where to go? Even in something innocuous.

    For example, I love rubbing alcohol as a wound disinfectant (cooling effect, no staining, etc). However, I travel by airplane, and there’s NO WAY something highly flammable wouldn’t be flagged, plus even if it weren’t, it’s extremely dangerous if it catches fire for any reason. So, I do without. Or try to procure locally after traveling (if I need any). You simply can’t travel with whatever you feel like traveling.

  28. Kitten says:

    BIG mistake to go through airport security stoned and carrying.

    Been there, done that and while I didn’t have a meltdown, the paranoia was through the roof.

    • manta says:

      That’s probably why she tried it at a train station. Success rate is usually better

      • Kitten says:

        See? That’s another reason you shouldn’t smoke weed: look what kind of effect it has on my reading comprehension.

    • Josefina says:

      Isn’t it easier to buy it at the place you’re heading to? Especially weed. I’ll never really understand why people travel with drugs just for personal consumption. Why take the risk?

      • Kitten says:

        Well it’s not like I’m traveling with a QP of weed lol..I have a tiny bit shoved somewhere in my bag.

        Trust me when I tell you that if TSA found it they’d confiscate it and send me on my way–they’re not looking to bust recreational users, they’re looking for people who are trafficking and selling large quantities of narcotics.
        Besides the fact that I had less than an ounce and was traveling from Denver to Boston (weed is decriminalized here).

        But that didn’t stop me from being paranoid because a good Colorado setiva will do that to ya.

  29. Felice. says:

    Am I the only one who is just shocked that she takes the train?

    • Cookiejar says:

      The Eurostar is kind of a “luxury train” that high end business types use. Tickets are expensive (unless they’re on sale).

    • Tina says:

      Most people in London who travel to Paris take the Eurostar. It’s much, much nicer than flying and it puts you right in the centre of Paris at the other end and not stuck out at the airport.

      On the racism issue, I don’t doubt that Mohammed would have been treated much more harshly than Cara was. But cops and security people over here don’t tend to kill people, that’s an overstatement (they don’t have guns). Would Mohammed be detained, for much longer than an hour? Absolutely. Would he be shot? No.

        First of all I don’t see where anyone claimed he would have been shot. Secondly, while I take your point, that’s disingenuous. What are those things carried by the guys who patrol Gare du Nord (where this would have happened)? They sure look like guns to me, and big ones. Are they props? Do they not count as “security” because they’re military?

      • manta says:

        Well;see comments upthread (16 or 17): Mohammed would be dead. Sure,the word “shot” is not written but I assume the commenter didn’t think security would stab or strangle him.
        The guys who patrol Gare du Nord are not the ones doing the security checks, they’re not custom officers and wouldn’t shoot anyone because they’re not cooperating. I’m even sure pickpockets could operate right in front of them without any move from their part. That was my experience anyway in 1995 at St Michel Notre Dame just after the bombings there. The joke in Paris then was that those weapons weren’t even loaded (part of me still believes this) but people like to see uniforms in times of insecurity, it’s their security blanket.
        Well, I guess this nigthmare of Euro football starting next month will tell us if that works.

        I am french. I don’t doubt for a second that has Mohammed or Jamal throw that kind of tantrum, praying on the knees, he would have been shot. Not to death, maybe? But shot for sure. And most of the people around would have been happy about that.
        Shitty times.

        The patrols’ weapons have one fake bullet, the first, and then shoot like any other weapon.

        Comment 17 above, and its reply. And manta’s right, the security people over here don’t have guns. The terrorist police do, but they don’t shoot people unless they’re an imminent threat (and try not to even then). The only one I can think of was Jean Charles de Menezes in 2005 after 7/7, which was tragic but very rare, it’s not a regular occurrence.

        @jeanpierre, have the terrorist police in France really shot people in a security inspection at a train station or airport? That seems like a crazy overreaction.

        The vacant lots next to Gare du Nord are TEEMING with rats!! Day & night.
        All you have to do is stand there and peer into all the cinder blocks & trash & all of a sudden you realize its all moving – like a kaleidoscope!
        Sacre bleu!

    She’s a lot worse than this. She was working on a project featuring a special needs person, and MADE FUN of this person’s disabilities on set… while her walkie was on. Everybody heard it. She is a scumbag and we should all ignore her.

    A French security source told The Sun many officers are fed up with celebrities acting as if they are above the law. He said: “Famous people often [don’t] seem to think the same rules apply to them as everyone else

    So stop treating them differently. Just ask the passengers blocked 18 hours in the tunnel in 2009, then forced to walk with their luggage just to discover that a special treatment was given to Claudia Schiffer (doors opened for her, car picking her ) if they weren’t fed up too. They’ve been treated as special snowflakes for years, so no wonder they think the rules don’t apply to them. They’ve been bent for them for ages.
    But I’m thrilled to see it’s changing. Let’s hope the experience of this little brat is really showing a change of tide. I’m gonna wait before risking my money on it though.
    With the Euro starting next months, there should be an increased traffic for the Eurostar, including celebrities. Sure, they’ll be treated like any basic supporter …or not.

    God, she and Ruby Rose need to get together and throw french fries at each other and cry about who’s more special.

  33. Otaku Fairy says:

    Yes- that was my thought too after reading about it. At first I was like, What weird behavior. Why would anyone- especially someone who has to have gone on many, many plane trips- have a meltdown like that over a luggage check? Is she that impatient to get somewhere- but then it clicked: she must have had drugs on her.

  34. Clairej says:

    I do love some of her modelling shots and think she is the best of the nepotism models by far BUT her and that stupid sister (who the Daily Mail called a supermodel at the Met Gala – so not worthy of being there, like many others unfortunately) are such entitled beasts. That Poppy is the worst. Too much fame, too fast and early.

  35. Grant says:

    She is AWFUL. And plain.

  36. Nunya says:

    Why was her race an issue? I’ve seen many a person have melt down over a variety issues related to travel. Many people can be an a$$, regardless of color. Not all persons of privilege are white and to say so insults the many who have overcome many hurdles.

    They have beefed up security incredibly in Paris since it was targeted twice in 2015. Flying out of Charles de Gaulle in September 2015, I was pulled aside for a random security check before boarding the plane so I had already gone through regular security. I wasn’t the only one, a bunch of people of various ethnicities were pulled aside as well (I’m white). Everything went fine until they found my iPod which did not have a charge. It is now a rule that ALL electronic devices must have a charge. They made me turn on all my electronic devices to prove it. If you get randomly checked and have a dead device on you, security is allowed to confiscate it. Something about how bombs can be hidden in devices. If the device can be turned on, it’s not a potential bomb. They finally allowed me to board with it after a lot of back and forth and trying to get me to an outlet to charge my iPod which was showing the Apple screen of dead battery. They wasted too much time since at that point the crew was boarding, I was the last person to board the plane (and they almost forgot to give me back my passports). I was pretty pissed by that point and thoroughly frustrated. My mom thought they had hauled me off to an interrogation room for questioning and they wouldn’t let her off the plane. It was super ridiculous, all this fuss over a dead iPod…
    But I do realize me being white with a very French name probably got me off a lot easier than someone else, like a person of color.

    She was dead to me after she snapped at Rob Stark for calling out her bs. No, honey. Not havin’ it.

    I think she was not sure whether she brought the bags with the drugs in them or without. Just in case, she threw a fit.
