This is turning out to be the week of stories about gorgeous-faced types losing their shit and getting in trouble, apparently. Yesterday we talked about Ruby Rose getting kicked out of a bar after she decided to fill out a customer satisfaction survey with a handful of french fries, and now we’re talking about Cara Delevingne getting detained by security after cussing out train staff.
According to The Sun, Cara’s shit day at the train station happened back on May 5th. I don’t know why we’re just learning about this mess now. Maybe train station drama doesn’t travel as quickly as airport drama. Regardless, Cara was about to board a Eurostar train traveling from Paris to London for her sister’s birthday when a security officer pulled her bag for a random search. Cara wasn’t feeling a search of her luggage, and she allegedly flipped out on the security officer. A witness tells The Sun that Cara unleashed a white-hot stream of expletives, and when another security officer came over to try to calm her down, she went after them too.
Cara took a quick break from swearing to pull out her cellphone, which The Sun says is a train security no-no. When she was told to put it away, the source claims she responded by screaming “fuck you” at the officer. To be fair, Cara was probably just frustrated that the officer interrupted her before she got to ask “Siri, since when did they start searching bags at the train station?”
Once Cara realized that no amount of cussing was going to prevent them from popping the locks and dumping her luggage, the source claims she “got down on her knees and put her hands together as if she was praying for the whole thing to be over.” But it wasn’t over! Cara was then taken into an interrogation room and detained for an hour. When she was finally released, the source says that her eyes were red, as if she’d been crying. They also claim she was “apologizing profusely.” Cara eventually got on her train, but not before she was slapped with a fine for verbal assault.
Train security tells The Sun that they’re sick of famous people acting like they’re above the rules, which might be why they gave Cara Delevingne such a hard time. Or maybe she just looked like she might have something tucked into her bag that would warrant a random search (which is possible). All I know is that this is not the train experience any of us signed up for. The train is what you take when you know you’re going to be too much of a mess for a plane. And now they’re searching bags and detaining people and frowning on throwing around the f-word? What are we left with, the bus? “Yes, come back to the bus” cooed Greyhound. “You can be as much of a disaster as you’d like on the bus.”
