Our teeny tiny violin hasnt been dusted off in a while, but we will do it for Winnie Harlow.

The model has complained about having to give up her business class flight seats to slum it in economy, and unsurprisingly, there hasnt exactly been a wave of sympathy for her.

The 25-year-old made an appearance at Milan Fashion Week, but had to fly elsewhere for a photo shoot today.

Unfortunately, Winnies flight was cancelled – and to get to the shoot on time, she had to settle for economy seats.

The Victorias Secret model wrote: I havent slept in 4 days, and my flight got cancelled. The amazing airport escort got my team and I put on the fastest flight out but we had to give up our business class seats in order to land in time for a huge shoot at 6am.

I realise this may not seem like a big deal to some, but when a plane is your bedroom and a flight the only time to get sleep during a hectic fashion month, its tiresome. Regardless Im grateful, god works in mysterious ways and everything happens for a reason.



Its not everyday glamour, you have to do what you have to do to be successful in life ??❤ to reach your goals the grind never stops! (Ty @hbjbofficial for being my pillow).

Winnie accompanied the post with a picture of her dressed in a Prada jumpsuit in full make-up, sleeping on her hairdresser Jordan Jay Brumant.

Side note – wouldnt this impromptu Instagram shoot interrupted her sleep? Just a thought.

Winnies woe is me post went down like a lead balloon, with followers calling the model out in the comments section.

One person wrote: People ride in those seats everyday so this really isnt a big deal but ok, while another raged: Oh wow.. you poor thing.. did you buy that extra seat so you could put your feet up and not have to sit next to us regulars? Also, very important you wear a Prada tracksuit to show people you dont REALLY belong there… unreal.

And another disgruntled fan seethed: Ohhh I feel so bad for u. U needed to give up your business class tix. That must be soooo hard. Is that the only problem you have in your life ??? Seriously.

However, some were a bit more sympathetic, as Austin Mahone commented: Ive been there before.. I feel you and others praised Winnie for getting to her shoot no matter what.
