British supermodel Cara Delevingne’s interview with Kenneth Rudulph, Marianne McClary, and Mark Allen on “Good Day Sacramento” didn’t go exactly the way the “Paper Towns” star might have wanted, but it certainly made international headlines.
The three-minute chat with the anchors started rolling downhill right from the word go, when McClary called Delevingne “Clara.” From there on, things never really improved.
The first question she was asked was about the John Green novel on which the movie she was promoting is based.
“Did you get a chance to read it or do you even have time to sit and read these days you’re so busy?” McClary asked.
“No, I never read the book. Or the script actually, I kind of winged it,” Delevingne responded, as reported by Washington Post. “No, of course I read the book, I think the book’s amazing. John Green is an incredible author.”
After her interview, Delevingne posted her reaction on social media.
Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour

And McClary responded a few hours later.

The supermodel was slammed by Whoopi Goldberg and Nicole Wallace on Wednesday’s The View, who said that Delevingne acted like a “bitch” in the interview.
“She’s not a famous actress. She’s a newbie … nah, honey, I’m famous. There’s professional and there’s unprofessional. We’re checking you, babe. We’re checking you. That was not the way to handle that, Cara,” Goldberg said.
However, several people came to Delevingne’s support.

@Caradelevingne or how it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book.
