Model Snaps Back At Woman Who Blatantly Took Pictures Of Him
A woman who tried to sneak some pictures of a celebrity model on the subway in New York City needs to work on her discretion after he realised and started snapping right back at her.
Some things about being a celebrity must be great - you get paid loads of money and people think you're great, for a start. However, some things - like people wanting to take pictures of you all the time - probably get a bit old.
Model and winner of America's Next Top Model Nyle DiMarco presumably gets a lot of that. Hell, if you're going to be a model you're gonna have to get used to people taking pictures of you, but if you aren't being paid and are - for example - trying to ride the subway, it probably starts to grate on you.
Brazilian Jiujitsu trainer Loiba was travelling on the E train in Manhattan the other week when she saw a guy that she described as "unbelievably gorgeous".
She told BuzzFeed: "Rarely do you see a supermodel ride the subway train. I can tell he's a fashion model because of what he was wearing."
She was doing what most people would do - having a good old look at him - for the whole journey, but then decided to get just a little bit creepy and take a few pictures of him so she could try to work out who he was.
She didn't just take one, though, she took loads. Like, the amount that you'd expect to be paid for if you were, say, a professional model.
Later on, she saw a photo of the same guy on Instagram and realised who he was. As a fan of America's Next Top Model, she suddenly knew who she had been sat across from on the train.
DiMarco also won Season 22 of Dancing with the Stars as well, so he's pretty well known.
She messaged him online to say: "I think I saw you on the E train last Sunday. If this is you, you are very handsome in person!"
She presumably wasn't expecting a response, but DiMarco not only came back to her, he also posted a photo of her in return. The photo showed Loiba blatantly taking photos of him on the train. Rumbled.
He said: "Yes I knew you were taking pics of me. Thank you love!"
Before we get into the argument of what would have happened if the roles were reversed and Loiba was a man taking photos of a female model, there's no need - everyone is fine with this.
In fact, it seems as if DiMarco thought it was funny. He even shared it with his 294k Twitter followers.
Still, if you're going to take photos of celebrities when they're out and about, either be a bit more stealthy or just ask them.
