When you're a world-famous model and social media darling, you're an easy target for critics - as Cara Delevingne found out earlier this week.  

On Sunday, the Suicide Squad star posted a tweet to her seven million Twitter followers: “On my way to do something incredibly exciting and I am very nervous”. 

 

The model and actor was then lambasted by @BradTheLadLong, who tweeted “…hopefully an interview for a real job. Your looks will fade, Cara. You can't cash in on your eyebrows forever.”

 

Fortunately the straight-talking model had the perfect comeback.

“You will regret saying that. I am actually trying to do something good. This has nothing to do with my 'looks',” Delevingne retorted. “You are just another thirsty man who puts people down for attention on Twitter and who thinks that looks are all that's important”.

 

“Try doing something for the world, period! I have no time no another man trying to tear down a woman for being successful.”

 

The "something incredibly exciting" Cara was talking about?

 

She was meeting with South Sudanese refugees on a trip with UNHCR, the UN's refugee agency, as part of its GirlUp campaign, which aims to improve education and school enrollment among refugee girls.

 

Sounds like a real job to us.
