Victoria’s Secret Model Shuts Down TMZ Reporter Over Dumb Food Question
I don’t generally like giving TMZ attention, but this moment from their coverage of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is worth it. It looks like models are getting fed up with dumb, borderline-sexist questions from reporters.
In this video called “Backstage With Hot Models Who Crave Fatty Foods,” a reporter panned over trays of sandwiches and finger food before approaching different Victoria’s Secret Angels and asking what they couldn’t wait to eat once the show was over.
He got a few predictable answers – chocolate, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, pizza – and then he got to Magdalena Frackowiak, who was busy having her makeup done.
“What?” she said, irritated. “No, guys, not with this kind of questions. This is stupid! Ask more smart questions, not ‘eating after the show.’”
As the TMZ reporter tried to backpedal, she continued, “You make me look like an idiot. It seems like I’m starving myself and I can’t wait for the show to end to eat.” He tried to launch into something about how hard the models work, but she’d had enough and dismissed him.
TMZ reacted with their usual class, saying that this “chick” was “NOT down with food questions … we’re guessing she was just hangry.”
It’s always heartwarming to see how fawning and clumsy guys like this are when talking to hot women who don’t have time for them, and then how insulting and dismissive they are afterwards. Chicks, amirite?
