“Welcome home.” Cara Delevingne hits back at “disgusting” paparazzi for trying to take photos under her skirt

Cara Delevingne is running out of patience with the British paparazzi and so are we.

Early this morning, the model and actress tweeted that a person with a camera tried to take a picture under her dress while attending a charity event in London.

"If a picture tomorrow comes out soon of my ass.... I sincerely apologise!" she wrote from the Project-0 fundraiser at Scala. "Some disgusting so-called 'human' with a camera tried to take a picture up my skirt." 

She added "Welcome home" alongside an emoticon of the Union Jack. 

It's not the first time Delevingne has hit back at the UK media's culture for taking unwanted and invasive pictures of celebrities. 

Last year, she told her Twitter followers she thought it was "disgusting that Paris is the only place where it is illegal for paps to follow you around".

Referring to Princess Diana's death in 1997, who died in a car accident while being hounded by photographers, Delevingne pointed to the fact that it took someone losing their life for the law to come into place.

"It's horrible!! How many people have to get hurt or even killed to realise that it's not right?" she continued. "It scares me because they act like they're assassins with there telescope lenses, hiding in bushes or whatever they can find."
