Below are some comments from netizens: 

  • There’s a person right in front of her…………. It’s really rude to just use vape in their face like that
  • I really hate people who smoke indoors
  • It’s fine to vape but I don’t think she should do it right into someone’s face like that
  • She must be a rather heavy smoker to have to smoke even while putting on makeup like that
  • She’s an adult, so it’s up to her whether she smokes or not. However, she should smoke after she puts her makeup on.
  • Smoking is okay, but it sucks when there’s someone right in front of you.
  • Wow, it seems like these celebrities really don’t see their staff as people.
