So an article popped up on Facebook about Cara Delvingne’s ‘awkward’ interview with Good Day Sacramento, and I decided to check it out.
I’m kind of shocked at how grossly unprofessional those anchors were on live television, and to Delvingne. You don’t accuse someone on live television of being irritable or not being ‘excited’ enough to talk on your morning show. One of the anchors said ‘you’re making five million dollars for eight weeks of work, the least you can do is give a little ‘OOOMPH’ for the interview.’
Uh, no, jackass – people can’t be ‘on’ all the time, and I feel as though Delvingne, while giving sarcastic responses (that were clearly intended for humor and not harming anyone), was conducting herself just fine. There’s no need to tell someone to go ‘get some red bull’ or ‘take a nap.’ Even if it’s a morning show, you’re still media professionals. Act professionally.
EDIT: they went on to throw out some of her responses she gave in a previous interview on a UK morning show and what it basically boils down to is: Next time, ask better questions.
