Cultural divide? It was the tense interview watched around the globe, and on Wednesday, July 29, Paper Towns star Cara Delevingne decided to share her side of the story after the anchors of Good Morning Sacramento called her out on the air.
“Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour,” the English supermodel and actress tweeted after her televised interview went viral.

The awkward exchange took place between Delevingne and anchors Kenneth Rudulph, Marianne McClary, and Mark Allen on Tuesday. After the reporters mispronounced her name as “Clara” and asked Delevingne if she’d bothered to read John Green’s novel, Paper Towns — the book on which her movie is based — the Brit appeared slightly annoyed.
“Uh, no. I never read the book or the script,” she replied sarcastically. “I kind of winged it. No, of course, [I did.] John Green is an incredible author, so really if you haven't read his books, you should.”
The anchors went on to call Delevingne out, saying she looked “exhausted” and “irritated,” which she denied. After she exited the interview, the table of reporters continued to publicly bash her.
Rudulph later tweeted, “Yeah, I could have asked a better question. That was my bad. LOL.” His colleague McClary, however, was not willing to back down, and posted another actor’s interview with the caption, ”Check out how a true class act deals with his jillionth interview: Sir Ian McKellan (sic)!”
