Security Incident at Cannes Film Festival Sparks Controversy

by Barbara

A recent incident involving a security guard and Dominican actress Massiel Taveras has stirred up controversy at the Cannes Film Festival. The altercation, captured in viral footage circulating on social media, shows Taveras in a heated exchange with the guard on the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals.

The video, initially shared on X (formerly Twitter), depicts Taveras in a striking white gown adorned with an image resembling Jesus. As she ascends the staircase, the security guard gestures for her to proceed, seemingly attempting to manage the train of her dress. Tensions escalate as Taveras pushes the guard’s arm away while attempting to display her gown to fans.


This incident follows another widely-publicized confrontation involving singer Kelly Rowland and a security guard during the premiere of Marcello Mio. Rowland, 43, addressed the incident during an interview with the Associated Press at the amfAR Cannes Gala, emphasizing her commitment to personal boundaries.


“The woman knows what happened. I know what happened,” Rowland stated. “I stood my ground, and she felt like she had to stand hers.”


The Cannes Film Festival, now in its 77th year, has attracted a constellation of stars including Meryl Streep, Sebastian Stan, and Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky from ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’. The event culminates with the announcement of awards, including the prestigious Palme d’Or, at its closing ceremony on Saturday, May 25, with Barbie director Greta Gerwig among those deciding the honors.

As the festival continues to unfold, the incidents involving security and celebrities highlight ongoing conversations about access and treatment on the red carpet, underscoring the complexities of navigating such high-profile events.
