It's thrilling to see more models flipping the bird to annoying paparazzi who can't even let them have a meal in Milan. Now, if only they were courageous enough to flip a bird or two on social media, because social media's PC followers policing models, female actors and other talents are out of control. Social media followers are becoming tyrants in the Trump tradition.
Metro UK drops down in Milan (and presumably bought the images from Splash) of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Stella Maxwell and Kristen Stewart eating spaghetti. The four were in town for Milan Fashion Week, where Kendall, Bella and Stella walked for Versace. Stewart presumably was hanging out with rumored girlfriend Stella Maxwell.
The girls are fighting back. Bella's sister Gigi Hadid covers the July 2018 issue of Vogue Australia, with an interview posted on AOC Monday night.

"There is no handbook for being in the spotlight."
Interviewed by Zara Wong, Gigi Hadid channels the same self-reflective thoughts expressed by Kendall Jenner. As a fast-rise Instagirls, Hadid knows that she is the product of a love/hate social media echo chamber, one "as unreal as Donald Trump's hair", in the words of VICE.

Kendall has also dedicated herself to trying to control her involvement in social media -- with family and followers. “I’ve been doing more Instagram stories, but I give only as much as I’m willing to because I’m still figuring a lot out myself,” she says. It’s safe to assume Jenner is often obligated to share sponsored posts with her 89.2 million Instagram followers. Otherwise, she relishes the control social media affords her. “It’s nice to be able to say, Do I wanna share this? Usually in my life, I don’t really get a choice, especially with paparazzi.” And she can’t stand hanging out with people who are paying more attention to their phones than to the world around them. “It’s an addiction. I’ll be at dinner with my good friends, and I’ll look at someone on their phone. They’re not texting someone, which I could accept. Maybe they’re talking about something important, or figuring out an email? No, they’re on Instagram and Twitter. It really does irk me. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, you don’t need to see what everyone else is doing! It’s not like you’re sitting in bed right now.’ I strive to not be that person—to not live my life on my phone.”
