Celebs were smokin’ on Monday - and we’re not talking about their looks!
The Met Gala, also known as the fashion industry’s prom, has come and gone. As always, the fashion was on point, but some attendees recently made headlines for their bathroom antics, not their outfits. Who knew people could look so good and act so bad?
Donors of the museum’s annual event are now furious after a slew of celebrities shared Instagrams and Snapchats of gala-goers smoking and “messing around” in the Met. Some of the A-list culprits include Bella Hadid, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora, Rami Malek, Behati Prinsloo, and Ruby Rose.

Other celebs - including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, A$AP Rocky and P. Diddy - weren’t seen smoking (kudos to them!) but they were not shy about all gathering in the ladies’ room for a selfie sesh!
As more and more posts began to surface after the event, the outrage grew.
An anonymous source told Page Six: “As a donor to the Met, I was so insulted to see all these ‘celebrities’ smoking and taking selfies of themselves in the bathroom. Mostly, it’s disrespectful to the art collection which needs to be kept 100 percent smoke-free. I would honestly like to see these people fined by the city.”
It sounds like smoke wasn’t the only problem. Other guests couldn’t even manage to do their business in peace!
The source continued, “Some of the celebs were smoking, some were vaping, most of them were lounging around like they were in their own living room so it made it impossible to get into the stalls. I mean, when you really need to go to the bathroom, you shouldn’t have to push P. Diddy out of the way to pee. [A] board member stormed right out and complained right away to Anna Wintour’s team. It is so disrespectful to the museum.”
What do you think? Should these celebs be fined or is the Met just being uptight? Either way, we can’t wait to see who’s invited back next year. (And in the meantime: stop smoking, people!)
