Model Tweets About Punching Topless Fashion Show Protesters

Thursday afternoon’s Nina Ricci spring 2014 runway show in Paris was interrupted by a topless pair of activists from Ukrainian feminist group FEMEN. Wearing black skinny jeans and Converse sneakers the half-naked duo each had a slogan painted on their chests. One read: “FASHION DICTATERROR.” And the other: “MODELS DON’T GO TO BROTHELS.” This was probably a play on FEMEN’s “UKRAINE IS NOT A BROTHEL” slogan, but overall it was somewhat unclear what the group was protesting. Here's some NSFW footage of the invasion:

Both ladies posed and yelled triumphantly in front of the cameras for a moment or two, before burly security guards wrestled them off stage. They hit the runway just as model Hollie-May Saker was rounding the corner on the runway. In video footage of the incident, she can be seen grabbing the wrist of a protester. She then tweeted "that she had ‘punched’ the ‘stupid bitch’ for getting her ‘saggy tits in my face’," reports New Statesman. When a follower tweeted to tell her we are "all on the same side," she replied, "If we are all on the same side then tell me why when I was doing my job did she come ruin it and lift up my skirt?"

These tweets — along with, "Have fun scrubbing that shit off your body bitch never been to a brothel in my life" — don't currently appear in Saker's feed, probably because she deleted them. (PSA: there is never any point in deleting tweets, as evidenced by the remarkable tools employed by bloggers everywhere called "copy" and "paste.") But overall, Saker is wonderfully unafraid of saying exactly what she thinks.

Taking Paris by storm, one awkward fashion week moment at a time.

The mission of the "FEMEN" movement is to create the most favourable conditions for the young women to join up into a social group with the general idea of the mutual support and social responsibility, helping to reveal the talents of each member of the movement.
