Naomi Campbell ups her airplane routine and you have to see it to believe it

LOS ANGELES — It’s going to take much more than coronavirus to take down Naomi Campbell.

The 49-year-old supermodel, who made headlines last fall after posting a video of her over-the-top airplane routine, isn’t taking any chances during the ongoing global outbreak. In new photos she posted on her Instagram earlier this week, Campbell is shown at Los Angeles International Airport wearing a full-out hazmat suit, a pair of goggles, face mask and latex gloves (coloured pink for an extra feminine touch).

She captioned the photo: “Safety First NEXT LEVEL.” She also promised to post a “full video” on her YouTube channel ‘Being Naomi’.

The post garnered over 477,000 likes and countless comments, including one from @muriel75002 who included the ‘applause’ emoji along with “This will go viral! No pun intended!”

@xamicalle also added: “People may laugh, but I applaud her, she’s smart guys, she uses her finances well to protect herself and people around her.”

But others slammed the supermodel for overreacting and for using much-needed gear and supplies meant for front-line healthcare workers. @lindahristodulu wrote: “These protective suits are intended for hospital staff to wear to treat sick patients…There is a dire shortage of protective suits, which will soon lead to an even greater shortage due to your idea. Think twice.”

The model first went viral for her anti-germ antics last September after she posted a Youtube video of her boarding a plane at Nice International Airport. Her airplane routine consisted of scrubbing down the seatback monitor, remote control, window, table, armrests, overhead light switch and overhead bin, using cleaning materials from her self-made ‘hydration pack’.

“This is what I do on every plane I get on. I do not care what people think of me, it’s my health and it makes me feel better,” she said in the video.

Here’s hoping Campbell continues to stay safe while riding out the global pandemic. Safe travels to everyone!
