When it comes to terror attacks, we now know that #CelebrityLivesMatter. A lot.
Specifically, some Nice residents expressed concern that U2 frontman Bono and other celebrities dining a half mile away from the scene of the recent terror attack received special treatment. According to the Telegraph:
But on Thursday, Bono, fellow musician Elton John, and the chef Alain Ducasse were among a number of celebrities caught up in the Bastille Day massacre in Nice.
The lead singer of U2, 56, and Ducasse, 59, were dining on the terrace of La Petite Maison restaurant near the seafront when the mass murderer Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a lorry into crowds who had just watched a fireworks display, killing 84 – including 10 children.
Bono and Ducasse were rescued by armed counter-terrorism police along with other prominent French figures including the former mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, who was also at the restaurant.
