Courtney Love was attacked in Paris on Thursday (June 25) by what she described as a "mob of taxi drivers." Taxi workers have been recently using blockades in European cities to picket Uber, as the mobile car-hailing service has hurt their industry; on Thursday, that picketing turned violent with Love in tow.
"Dude @kanyewest we may turn back to the airport and hide out with u.picketers just attacked our car #ParisUberStrike," Love wrote on Twitter on Thursday. "they've ambushed our car and are holding our driver hostage. they're beating the cars with metal bats. this is France?? I'm safer in Baghdad."
