Board members and donors at the Metropolitan Museum of Art were unhappy with celebrities smoking at the Met Gala on Monday night, and many want these stars to be fined. Quite a number of celebrities, including Bella Hadid, Dakota Johnson, Marc Jacobs and Frances Bean Cobain, were seen lighting up inside the establishment, despite the fact that the museum has a no smoking rule.
"As a donor to the Met, I was so insulted to see all these 'celebrities' smoking and taking selfies of themselves in the bathroom," a source told Page Six. "Mostly, it's disrespectful to the art collection, which needs to be kept 100% smoke-free. I would honestly like to see these people fined by the city."
The New York City Smoke-Free Air Act prohibits smoking in nearly all indoor workplaces, and first-time violaters will be fined anywhere between $200 and $400.
The board of the Metropolitan Museum of Art has reportedly told Vogue editor Anna Wintour to find a new home for the gala next year. "Anna and her team are working 'round the clock to solve the issues with the board and are promising a much smaller event next year, with more security and Vogue staff positioned in every bathroom," an insider told Radar Online.
