Some celebrities got a little too comfortable at Monday night's Met Gala. Photos have surfaced of famous attendees such as Rita Ora, Ruby Rose and Bella Hadid lounging on the bathroom floor, smoking cigarettes and taking mirror selfies. As Page Six reports, board members and donors are not happy with the celebs, saying their actions are "disrespectful" to the art collection.

New York has a law against smoking inside, but that didn't stop Behati Prinsloo, Frances Bean Cobain, Dakota Johnson and Marc Jacobs, to name a few of the guilty, from lighting up in the gallery's restroom. And it certainly did not keep them from sharing photos of the "party" on social media.
Some have claimed the bathroom selfies were the best part of the gala. As it turns out, they weren't so exciting for everybody.
An anonymous board member complained to Page Six, "As a donor to the Met, I was so insulted to see all these ‘celebrities’ smoking and taking selfies of themselves in the bathroom. Mostly, it’s disrespectful to the art collection, which needs to be kept 100% smoke-free. I would honestly like to see these people fined by the city.”
Another member claimed to be "horrified" after trying to use the restroom, where a group of A-listers including P. Diddy and the KarJenners were "lounging around like they were in their own living room." The source added ironically, "I mean, when you really need to go to the bathroom, you shouldn’t have to push P. Diddy out of the way to pee."
Has anyone told celebs that smoking isn't a cool habit, whether or not you're at a prestigious event?
