Attention paparazzi: Cara Delevingne is not messing around in Milan.

The Burberry cover girl took to social media Wednesday following an unfortunate run-in with the Italian paparazzi.

Delevingne flew to the fashion capital to join fellow model Kate Moss in a presentation for the brand, Mango, but when she arrived, she was met with the glares of flashing cameras. Describing the aftermath on Twitter, Delevingne began by making a plea with her stalkers.

"To the guys in Milan! I only cover my face when you are rude to me, please do not make me feel like a zoo animal" the catwalk star tweeted, begging to be left alone.

The Pan star continued, recounting how she had been excited to arrive in Milan until she was blinded by the bulbs. Her account quickly filled with tweets fearing that her trip is already ruined, pleading for empathy, and threatening to camp outside the photographers' houses with cameras "one day when [she] has time." 

While it is still unclear what exactly the paparazzi did to her, we can assume they were overbearing and invasive from the context of her statements. The British beauty was so infuriated by the objectification, the threats continued to fill her feed.

"I refuse to let these grown men treat people like objects with no feelings and get away with it, I will never be silent," Delevingne promised, adding that their behavior will come around to bite them in the future. "If not, I certainly will," she vowed.

Gal pal and fellow model Kendall Jenner chimed in, offering a similar sentiment. "Preachhhhh," the famed member of the Kardashian clan wrote back in solidarity.


After several attempts to end the rant, she added one last warning.

"Well f**k it, what will be, will be. You just have to laugh sometimes. The world is a crazy place, I wish I could pore molten cheese on them." Interesting choice, Cara. 

In the midst of her fury, Delevingne managed to make light of the situation with a subtle joke.

"Mwhahahaha! I think the flashes are getting to my head."

 Delevingne has vocalized her issues with the modeling industry and its treatment several times before, including her public decision to stop her career altogether and focus on acting after years of unwanted sexual photoshoots.

"I am a bit of a feminist and it makes me feel sick," the Suicide Squad actress told London's The Times. "It's horrible and it's disgusting. [We're talking about] young girls. You start when you are really young and you do, you get subjected to…not great stuff."

Then, there was that extremely uncomfortable on-air interview during Good Day Sacramento while promoting her film, Paper Towns. Basically, Delevingne isn't afraid to speak her mind when necessary—and clearly that need arises often. 

You go, girl!
