Naomi Campbell is traveling in a full hazmat suit with gloves, goggles & a mask

One of my favorite things to happen last year was when I discovered that Naomi Campbell is a YouTuber now, and she makes YouTube videos about her life, her travel, her shopping habits and more. I even covered her videos about her routines for flying and for shopping at Whole Foods. For flying, she buys candy snacks for trip at the airport, plus fashion magazines, then as soon as she gets to her seat, she puts on gloves and wipes everything down with disinfecting wipes. I mean EVERYTHING. Then she keeps a mask on for the flight. It was a pre-coronavirus thing, so imagine how Naomi is rolling in the ‘Rona Era. Well, you can see for yourselves.

Naomi posted these photos to her Instagram and I love this. I mean, I definitely think that people should avoid traveling on planes these days, but God knows what kind of job or gig Naomi had. So of course Naomi was like GIVE ME A HAZMAT SUIT. Give me goggles and a mask! And latex gloves! I mean… can you blame her? I don’t blame her at all. I thought I was being smart by going to bed early and washing my hands more than usual. Naomi was like “FINALLY, I get to pull put my hazmat suits, I’ve been dying to wear these things.” Also: how does she still look chic here?

    Hahahahahahhahah love it

    Lol. I found an old N95 mask left behind in my office from some work being checked by contractors and I was like, score! Finders keepers.

    Actually, I am pretty depressed. A couple of work events that I had planned for months and represent weeks of my labor have been cancelled due to universities limiting the size of gatherings and work related travel, and it’s such a gigantic bummer to watch all your hard work just go ‘poof’ and evaporate.

    • OG Cleo says:

      Then you’re at risk of catching anything the person who was wearing it had. If it was unused, the person who left it likely needed it for professional reasons. Those masks are designed to be effective when fitted to individual faces.

    • Snowslow says:

      Me too @Bros, a big event I was working on for a year was postponed and potentially cancelled if this goes on in Europe and doesn’t get any better. Real bummer. I thought I’d be ok but I am super depressed. It’s a lot of work for an adrenaline drop close to the opening date!

    • Gina says:

      Sorry to inform you that those masks are only good for about 5-10 minutes of use. Once the filter gets moist from you breathing, it’s no longer effective. Found that out yesterday from and ER Doc. 🙁

      • K.T says:

        Um, I would recheck this information about 3M n95 masks because current information says that they are extremely useful (when fitted properly) at filtering out particles etc. Though far less though after ‘limited use’ but have been used correctly for ‘extended use’ in certain cases. That’s why I hope all frontline medical staff have enough stock of these and even more highend masks.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      I got two N99 masks online, and bought extra filters for them. I want my dad to be wearing it when I have to take him out (to dr. appts). Not supposed to be super comfortable (ie: warm), but with the changeable carbon filters it’s supposed to filter out 99% of everything and be reusable.

  3. Seraphina says:

    If I were her, I’d be on some beach soaking up the sun and salt water air. Not sure if she could get out what ever she has going on but she has the money to be able to cancel, no????

  4. Nata says:

    Naomi Campbell has a history of physically and mentally abusing people yet she’s treated like a queen. Very odd. I guess beauty (and lots of wigs) can get you out of almost anything.

    • Ali says:

      Everyone has a history and she literally paid her debt to society.

      • Nata says:

        I have never in my life assaulted someone or thrown a phone at a person. Is that in your history? Not to mention how she destroyed another models career because she dated her ex-boyfriend. Not illegal, but still disgusting.

    • Summergirl says:

      If a male celebrity had the kind of history of abuse and violence Naomi Campbell has, the celebitches here would never forget and forgive (nor should they).

      • Kelly says:

        Agreed. She has repeated accounts of physical and verbal abuse. She paid for it? Well yeah, she paid for it the way celebrities of her caliber pay for their mistakes. She paid her way out of it, and when she was doing her community service she mocked her victims with a T-Shirt that said “I was hit by Naomi Campbell and I loved it”.

        I used to like Naomi and her diva behavior but not anymore. I can only imagine how her victims must feel seeing her often being celebrated for being an exuberant diva, when it was that diva-like behavior that led her to abuse all those poor women.

    • Naddie says:

      Yes, but if you look good and keep people entertained you can step on their faces and they’ll thank you.

  5. Swack says:

    If she is that concerned then take a private plane. She could make sure every thing is sanitized.

    • babsjohnson says:

      Everyone yells, as they should, when celebs fly private. Kudos to Naomi for doing what’s right for the planet.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Doing what’s best for the planet would be to reduce the number of plane rides you take, regardless of them being private or commercial flights to the very strict minimum. Multiple flights/months are terrible for the environment

    • BaddieB says:

      I don’t think that this is over the top for her, even before this new virus she detailed how she would sanitize her seating areas on planes because she travels so much. There was an interview that she did about “a day in the life”. She might be a germaphobe!

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      Eh… even when I flew to NY last fall I had Lysol wipes and wiped down my seat, the arm rests, tray tables… I asked my seat mate if he minded if I did the one between us, and he smiled and told me to “knock myself out” lol. I also used tissues on handles. In my hotel room, I wiped down the remote, the lamp buttons, and the bathroom.

      Granted, I live with/take care of my 92 yr. old dad (and I have to be careful not to bring anything home!) and I have what is considered a “compromised immune system” now (stem cell transplant 6 yrs ago; it’s considered an “organ transplant” for some reason). So, now, I also wear latex gloves when going out to the market (for the cart handles and the credit card push pad), change them often (once off my hands, if I need them again I put on another pair). When I get home, I wash up to the tunes of Happy Birthday or Row Row Row Your Boat (there’s actually a list online of song verses that are 20 sec. in case you get tired of these! lol)

      An ounce of prevention….

  6. OriginalLara says:

    She’s cray-cray but you’ve got to love her. Hahahaha!

  7. Spicecake38 says:

    I’m just surprised that she’s in the hazmat suit vs demanding that everyone else from staff to other passengers wear one

  8. Liz version 700 says:

    OMG that is so funny. I have the flu as of yesterday and I have to say wearing a mask really helped the pharmacy get my script get filled a lot faster. Maybe it is time for an Amazon post on gadgets to help make the flu/convo 19 (if you have a mild case) or other Nasty viruses easier to bear. Like an expansion on the travel humidifier?…

    Also, maybe fun things to do when you are feeling miserable but can’t sleep. Not that I have a personal interest in this at the moment 😀

    • Lex says:

      Why do you need a script when you hve the flu?

      • Liz version 700 says:

        If you catch it in the first 48 hours and have a positive test you can take Tamiflu or another new medicine to cut the time down by several days. Literally you should go to the doctor at the first sign of a sore throat… they then gave me a mask which I wore to get my meds and then home

  9. Desmond says:

    That paper mask isn’t going to help none.

  10. Juniperus says:

    That’s class C hazmat gear right there and ain’t gonna do squat for anything. It’s barely protective for chemicals, let alone viruses.

    Incidentally (not that I’m bitter) my workplace does put people into these things to keep nuisance dusts and chemical splashes from getting onto their street clothes, but mainly to keep them from shedding their skin/hair into our clean room.

    GUESS WHO CAN’T GET THE DAMN THINGS ANYMORE. I’ve been spending all week with our purchasing guy trying to source that stuff.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Oh yeah no more masks for doctors offices or suits for chemical stuff and no purell unless you want to spend $99

      • paranormalgirl says:

        We have been trying to order masks for the clinic and have hit up against a wall of “none left.” Hopefully we have enough for our day to day operations. Our threat level in the Bahamas is “very high” due to the tourist industry.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Paranormal girl that is just awful. Part of it is fueled by fear because of the mixed messages from Trump (better get masks can’t trust the government), but part is just insane people buying uncontrollably or making a profit off of an epidemic. Meanwhile health care providers are taking it on the chin with this virus due to repeated exposure. I am hoping you guys can get the supplies you need.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Thanks. So do I. The benefit from retiring my psych practice and dusting off my family medical license should be lazy days on the beach interrupted by some hours of clinic work. But now this.

    • Arpeggi says:

      Oh I’m bitter and I don’t mind saying it. The animal facilities at my universities are running low on masks and have to keep them in the animal tech’s office now because ppl are stealing them. It’s frustrating to see people paying lots of money for PPE that won’t protect them when those who actually need them can’t get access to them. It’s performative and the sense of false security can lead you to expose yourself to pathogens more than you would if you simply went with the recommended guidelines

      • Livvers says:

        Stealing PPE from a lab that works closely with animals. Those thieves don’t care that we are in this situation because of zoonotic disease transfer? Pure selfishness.

        I can think of one time in history when that worked out for humanity (cowpox–>smallpox vaccine). The rest are not good stories for us.

  11. Naomipaige99 says:

    That would freak me out so much if someone came on the plane like that.

  12. Middle of the road says:

    I can’t imagine how hot and uncomfortable she must be. I guess do what you gotta do. I’m hoping by summer the cases will start to ware down as a lot of times viruses can’t survive in hot weather. We shall see.

    • OG Cleo says:

      The most likely scenario (imo) is cases gradually slow and COVID-19 just becomes another part of cold and flu season. We will get better at treating it and will develop a vaccine for it and the mortality rate will drop to the level of the flu, but it’ll never really be gone.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        I read an article yesterday that said this is just the FIRST WAVE of the virus; SECOND WAVE is set to ramp up in Sept., beginning of the new flu season.

    • Arpeggi says:

      Viruses can totally survive in hot weather: they are intracellular parasites! They live in a regulated 37C environment! Summer was when polio would hit the most because, as an intestinal virus, it’d be easily transmitted in swimming pools. Flu has a seasonal pattern because its main route of transmission are birds and the pattern follows bird migration. The dryness of the indoor heated air, the fact that we tend to congregate indoor increases transmission during cold months, but viruses don’t give a crap about the weather

      • ME says:

        I’d really like to know why SARS never came back. It also didn’t spread like Covid-19. I know our population is bigger now, people travel more, everyone has a dirty cell phone on them, but SARS disappeared when summer hit and never returned. I’m just curious as to why?

      • GloryS says:

        @ ME, ‘flu disappears to a large extent in the summer too.

      • ME says:

        @ GloryS

        Yes I know, but the flu returns every year. SARS never did. I’m just curious as to why?

      • Arpeggi says:

        @ME, some viruses are just not really good at replicating in humans vs in their usual hosts, that might be why SARS disappeared relatively quickly.

        To be honest, I sort of only half-listened to my lectures on coronaviruses in grad school because the teacher was awful so it’s not the species I’m most knowledgeable about, plus human coronaviruses have been understudied because they usually only give you a cold and there isn’t much money to fund research programs (it went up in 2003-2005 but then the crash came…); that teacher was studying equine strains because there’s money there as they get the horses really sick… So while we’ve started to study them more with MERS appearing, we’re really not there yet (obviously). But SARS showed up in Toronto in March and lasted until June there. Ebola sort of has the same pattern: it’ll go away for years, not so much because we’re doing a good job containing it but because it’s not that great at human to human replication.

        In most cases, the seasonal patterns have more to do with our habits and their natural reservoir than anything else. The strictly human viruses don’t have much of a seasonal pattern associated with them

      • ME says:

        @ Arpeggi

        That is fascinating ! Thanks so much for taking the time to explain !

  13. lucy2 says:

    I mean…she could just stop traveling?

  14. Awkward symphony says:

    She’s fun to watch and probably fun to hang out with. I’ll bet she has all sorts of protective gear thats now out of stock😂

  15. Tiffany says:

    “Also: how does she still look chic here?”

    She is Naomi Campbell.

  16. Kathy Kack says:

    She looks like an idiot LOL

  17. Jan080 says:

    Her nose! Sheesh! Campbell and Halle Berry are those unique people whose noses shrink as they get older. Both are entering Lil’ Kim territory. Whatever, with the hazmat suit.

  18. mar says:

    but she’s sure killing it with her contouring!

  19. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I see her name and immediately think cray. I don’t like the way she treats people, and she’s got a lot of nerve living with an obvious lack of humility and mea culpa.

    However, that being said, if I had to travel by plane, train, ship, etc. I’d suit up as well. At the very least, mask, gloves and outerwear. A hazmat might be cooler.

  20. ME says:

    Did she fly private? How did she get past security? They make you take even a zip up hoodie off (I’ve had to do that before). What I hate are those damn bins you have to put your shoes, phone, and belongings in. They really need a color system so shoe bins are a different color. It’s gross how everything is all in one bin. Talk about spreading sh*t !

  21. mk says:

    Well, Naomi is an old lady now and we old ladies have to be extra careful with this coronavirus! (sorry Naomi…)

  22. Eugh says:

    I know she is extra, but stigma about masks needs to stop in general. We could all benefit if their use wasn’t derided as ‘useless’ in the West.

  23. GloryS says:

    Silly woman

  24. Airfryer says:

    This is infinitely more preferable (and admittedly has a lot of entertainment value for the IG age) than the teen girl I saw the other day in a public restroom. I used the single sink after her, but technically she didn’t use anything. After she came out of her stall, she plonked her phone on the vanity unit, chatted to her friend, checked her hair in the mirror, and pulled open the door with her still-unwashed hands and walked out. It was disgusting and of course I used my antibacterial wipes to pull open the door after her (would have used a clean tissue if I hadn’t had my wipes with me). No pizza for me, thanks! (Seinfeld, The Pie)

    • ME says:

      That is f*cking disgusting. I just don’t understand some people.

    • lucy2 says:

      And that’s why I never, ever touch a public restroom door handle with my hands. And try not to touch anything else either.

      We should all start being passive aggressive – “oh no, does that sink not work? Try another!” “Oh no, is that one out of soap? There’s some here!”

  25. Molly says:

    I hope she understand there is a proper technique to take off that hazmat gear….otherwise she did it all for nothing

  26. Well-Wisher says:

    There is a video on the intraweb of Naomi cleaning and sanitizing her plane seat all of the surrounding areas. Very funny. Not surprised she wore that suit.

  27. Le4Frimaire says:

    I thought this was dumb, especially if you don’t know the correct way wear this stuff. Also, will create panic buying and deprive health professionals of this gear. Maybe she should stay her ass home for a few weeks instead.

  28. HELEN says:

    i stan

  29. Hildog says:

    THIS useless human being should not have access to important protective supplies needed for medical workers. I am also irritated that people are traveling for non essential purposes. 🙄. Anyone caught wearing hazmat gear for fun should be sent to work on the frontlines of this epidemic! I have no tolerance for this type of ignorance. If I sound cranky it’s because I work for a large medical/pharmaceutical supply company and we don’t have enough masks, gloves etc. for those who truly need them!
