Over the weekend, the model was escorted off a flight by police, after becoming “disruptive”, and allegedly calling the pilot a 'basic bitch', a detail which left us all feeling more than a little bemused.
Now, eagle-eyed fans have pointed out that just days before the incident, Kate starred in a “basic bitches” spoof vid, with her pal, the fashion designer Marc Jacobs.

The clip is a nod to YouTuber Lohanthony, whose viral, 9-second clip has totted up over 2.8 million views.
Lohantony regrammed the clip, adding the caption: “So @themarcjacobs and kate moss aka two prime examples of someone who is NOT basic MIGGHTT have just done my leg spin while calling out all the basic bitches on camera for my eyes to see and DROOL over. i don't know how i'm still breathing. #HONOURED. #kateslegstho #thoseshadestho.”
News of Kate’s EasyJet drama came to light on Monday, when it was revealed that the model caused a few disruptions during a flight back from Bodrum, where she’d spent the week at a detox retreat.
According to Mossy’s fellow passengers, the star became unhappy when she wasn’t allocated a seat with her friends, before “kicking off” when the crew didn't have any sandwiches available.
In a move that will go down in celebrity history, Kate then allegedly called the pilot “a basic bitch”.
Spokespeople for Bedfordshire Police and EasyJet both confirmed that officers met the flight when it landed at Luton Airport on Sunday afternoon.
“We were called to assist staff in escorting a passenger from a flight arriving into Luton airport this afternoon,” stated the Bedfordshire Police spokesperson. "The passenger had been reported as being disruptive on the flight."
