Courtney Love Tweets While Under Attack By Protestors
Love took to Twitter to let her fans know that some angry protestors against the Uber app were attacking her car. Not too hard to believe, being that many in the city have expressed concerns that the company puts the livelihood of licensed taxi drivers at risk, French taxi drivers have even blocked roads to Paris airports in protest, with the BBC reporting that riot police have been using tear gas in retaliation.
Love, unfortunately, got caught in the crossfire, even heeding a warning to Kanye West, who was also in Paris, probably not getting any damn croissants, but getting stuck in some damn traffic.
"Dude @kanyewest we may turn back to the airport and hide out with u.picketers just attacked our car #ParisUberStrike" she wrote, along with a photo of her car's window with egg all over it.
She goes on to say "they've ambushed our car and are holding our driver hostage. they're beating the cars with metal bats. this is France?? I'm safer in Baghdad … FranÃ§ois Hollande where are the f-ing police??? is it legal for your people to attack visitors? Get your ass to the airport. Wtf???"
But all in all, she was able to escape the protests, writing that she "paid some guys on motorcycles to sneak us out, got chased by a mob of taxi drivers who threw rocks, passed two police and they did nothing."
She later posted a photo once things calmed down, thanking the motorcyclists who helped her, and throwing some shade at France's government. Read more including the posts and photo here.
