Winnie Harlow comes under fire for begrudging flying coach

‘We had to give up our business class seats’: Winnie Harlow comes under fire for begrudging flying coach… (while putting her shoes on a seat and donning a Prada tracksuit)

Winnie Harlow took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to share a post in which she lamented having to give up her business class seat on a plane. 

The former America’s Next Top Model star, 25, revealed her flight had been cancelled and she was due to head to a shoot at 6am the following morning so was forced to fly coach after an airport escort managed to get her another flight. 

After sharing the lengthy message, Winnie divided followers in the comments section as some insisted ‘this really isn’t a big deal’ and asked if the predicament was ‘the biggest problem in her life’ while others praised the star for her candour. 

Shocker: Winnie Harlow took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to share a post in which she lamented having to give up her business class seats on a plane

Winnie, who shot to fame in 2014 as a contestant on the 21st cycle of America’s Next Top Model, had appeared on the runway at the Prada Milan Fashion Week show just hours before and revealed she was headed away to another shoot. 

Unfortunately, her plane had been cancelled, meaning she was forced to give up her business class seat and made to fly coach on the overnight journey. 

In the image, she was seemingly asleep on her friend’s lap while stretched out over two seats, with her shoes on the plane seat beside her – something that riled her fans – while she was also donning a Prada tracksuit.

She penned: ‘I haven’t slept in 4 days, and my flight got cancelled. The amazing airport escort got my team and I put on the fastest flight out but we had to give up our business class seats in order to land in time for a huge shoot at 6am…

‘I realize this may not seem like a big deal, but when a plane is your bedroom and a flight the only time to get sleep during a hectic fashion month, it’s tiresome…

‘Regardless I’m grateful, god works in mysterious ways and everything happens for a reason. It’s not everyday glamour, you have to do what you have to do to be successful in life to reach your goals the grind never stops!’

She soon divided some of her 6.8million Instagram followers, who could not decide whether her predicament was worthy of her moaning status.

Some fans penned: ‘People ride in those seats everyday so this really isn’t a big deal but ok… Oh wow.. you poor thing.. did you buy that extra seat so you could put your feet up and not have to sit next to us regulars?…

‘Also, very important you wear a Prada tracksuit to show people you don’t REALLY belong there… unreal… Ohhh I feel so bad for u. U needed to give up your business class tix. That must be soooo hard… Is that the only problem you have in your life ??? Seriously… Lol *takes coach once *’.

Meanwhile, her supporters wrote: ‘ Y’all mad in the comments. But if she didn’t put the caption. Y’all would be saying ‘wow you’re not that rich/important/ well off where you could buy business class’ … but go off… You are the hardest working Supermodel.. I enjoy your posts Winnie.’
