I don’t think anyone would be surprised to learn that Naomi Campbell is a bit more anal when it comes to keeping herself away from germs while she’s in flight. Ms. Campbell is no nonsense and being infected by someone else’s germs is foolishness. And while none of us really have time for that, many of us aren’t taking the precautions Campbell is to prevent it from happening.
In a recent video uploaded to her new YouTube lifestyle channel, Campbell shared her airport routine. And chile, not only is it a sight to behold, it might keep you from catching a nasty cold the next time you’re in a plane.
“I’m actually looking for my gloves which is the best part of the whole thing. Get some wipes and clean anything you touch, anything you cold possibly touch. Anything that you put your hands on, everything. 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.”
After watching Campbell wipe down her entire seating area, a White woman sitting behind Campbell asked, “Can you do my seat next?”
She was clearly joking. But the implications of a White woman asking a Black woman to clean for her were not lost on Campbell who had the perfect response.
“I don’t do them for you but I’ll share it with you.”
Later, she places a brightly covered seat cover over the cushion of the chair and then lastly, she applies a face mask.
“And then I will eventually end up sitting like this [with face mask secured behind her ears.] the whole entire flight. No matter what plane you take, private or commercial, people start coughing and sneezing. And the coughing and sneezing, I just can’t. As much as I travel, I should get sick so much more with colds and stuff.And I’m blessed that I don’t. And I really think that this helps me. My little routine.”
