‘Some people just don’t understand sarcasm’ - Cara Delevingne responds to THAT awkward interview
Published 30/07/2015 | 09:03
Cara Delevingne has responded to the cringeworthy interview she was subjected to on Good Day Sacramento this week.
The British model and actress was interviewed by three US breakfast TV hosts about her new movie, Paper Towns, and after she was introduced as 'Carla' things went horribly wrong.
Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour— Cara Delevingne (@Caradelevingne) July 29, 2015
In the wake of the interview going viral, the vast majority of people have emerged on Team Cara, critcising the hosts for their condescending attitude and ill-informed questions.
And now Cara has taken to Twitter to say, "Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour".
Cara had greeted the lacklustre interview with good-natured British sarcasm which didn't go down particularly well, especially since the video link delay led to awkward silences.
Despite the 22-year-old doing her best with a bad situation, a third host chipped in to say Cara had been more "enthusiastic" in other interviews.
Cara said she'd been celebrating at the film's premiere the night before and said, "It's the morning, don't be mean!".
They then said they'd let the "irritated" actress go and "take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull" and concluded by saying the supermodel and burgeoning Hollywood actress would probably be familiar to people from Taylor Swift's Bad Blood video.

Following her tweet, Boy George chipped in with "I do" in response to her comment about the British sense of humour.
Cara also re-tweeted a comment which included another interview in which Cara was asked "better questions" and therefore gave "better answers".

Zach Braff also tweeted Cara to say, "it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book".
One of the Good Day Sacramento hosts, Kenneth Rudolph, responded by conceding that he could have asked a better question, "Yeah, I could have asked a better question. That was my bad LOL".
However, another host, Marianne McClary, was defiant. She tweeted, "Checkout how a true class act deals with his jillionth inteview: Sir Ian McKellan! Good Day Sacramento" accompanied by a link to the programme's interview with the legendary British star.
