The ‘This Morning’ presenter was just one of many stars who headed to the award show after-parties, and as many of them left, they had to navigate paparazzi who tried to get photos up their skirts.
Referencing the fact many in attendance at the Brits showed their solidarity to victims of sexual harassment earlier in the evening, she wrote: “At the beginning of the night we held white roses and walked down a red carpet full of the hope and pride that comes with the #timesup campaign.
“At the end of the night, cameras were held low to get a photo up our skirts… times apparently up on #timesup.”
Currently the practice of covertly photographing under someone’s clothes is not recognised as a criminal offence in England and Wales, although it is illegal in Scotland (under the Sexual Offences [Scotland] Act 2009).
Noticing their lack of white roses on the red carpet, she interrupted an interview the pair were doing and said: “You should be carrying these, in camaraderie with women. Why’s it just the women carrying these?”
As the two musicians seemed confused, Paloma explained: “This is for the men [too], please take one. It’s to say ‘me too’, it’s the campaign, that’s what the symbol is.”
