Back in July, Cara Delevingne was interviewed by a random local news crew, and the clip went viral as a result of the model’s hilariously sarcastic responses to asinine questions from a bunch of Ron Burgundy-types.
Cara defended the interview, and was right in her refusal to apologize. The anchors were smug and condescending, and apparently felt that it was only okay when they made jokes.
Surprisingly, however, it looks like the “news” crew from Sacramento (Stay classy, Sacramento!) has an unexpected ally in the King in the North.
You may remember Richard Madden as the ill-fated Robb Stark on Game of Thrones (His time on the show ended with the Red Wedding), or the slightly less ill-fated Prince Charming in Cinderella. (The movie ended with his own wedding.)
Now, however, you might remember him as one half of one of the dumbest Twitter feuds in history.
“It was unprofessional. It made her seem ungrateful,” Madden said when asked about Cara’s controversial interview.
“She showed her age. For Cinderella, I did six weeks of those interviews, where you get asked the same eight questions. If you’re not capable of doing that gracefully, then don’t do it.”
Nothing too terrible. In fact, it’s a completely reasonable take on the issue. But for some reason it was enough to make Cara go off:
“I have no idea who you are but I think it’s little desperate for a grown man to be bad mouthing someone they don’t know,” cara tweeted. “If you really want attention that badly, try focusing on your own work and not other people’s.”
Many have pointed out that Cara clearly does know who Richard is, since she bothered to respond to his comments. Also, they’re both in their 20s, so Cara trying to frame the situation as a “grown man” picking on a little girl is kinda lame.
Madden apologized and claimed he was misquoted, but we would be surprised if Cara just lets the whole thing slide.
