A “trainwreck” of a TV interview with model-turned actress Cara Delevingne by news hosts at Sacramento station KMAX-TV, which we posted previously, has been all the talk after going viral this week.
You can watch the interview, in which the TV hosts quickly become irritated with the young British star of the new movie “Paper Towns,” by clicking here.
Delevingne followed up the incident with a tweet in which she said: “Some people just don’t understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour.”
Plenty of other observers have also sounded off about the incident, lining up either on the side of the hosts — who suggested that Delevingne might need a Red Bull and a nap — or on Delevingne’s side. On “The View,” where the awkward interview received plenty of discussion, both sides were aired.
E! Online reports that “The View’s” Raven-Symone was supportive of Delevingne, sympathizing with the 22-year-old for having to endure a marathon movie promotion effort.
“You know what she was mad at?,” Raven-Symone is quoted saying. “She was mad she had to sit through 13 to 300 different people getting asked the same question over and over again.”
But co-host Nicolle Wallace was less sympathetic, saying: “When you’re a famous movie star and you get to go on a local news show to promote a movie that people are paying $18 to go watch, you don’t get to act like a bitch.”
Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez also pointed the blame at Delevingne, with Goldberg suggesting that the actress “suck it up.”
