Paper Towns author John Green quickly came to Delevingne's defense with a long message posted to Twitter in defense of the model-turned-actress.

"Cara, however, refuses to stick to the script," Green wrote in the part of the essay Delevingne retweeted. "She refuses to indulge lazy questions and refuses to turn herself into an automaton to get through long days of junketry. I don't find that behavior entitled or haughty. I find it admirable. Cara Delevingne doesn't exist to feed you narrative or your news feed — and that's precisely why she's so f***ing interesting."

Delevingne retweeted the image of the text without even knowing it was Green who wrote it. In her tweet, she said, "Whoever said this! Thank you so much!" to which Green responded, "That was me!

Delevingne was visibly irritable during the Good Day Sacramento interview, where she rolled her eyes often and sarcastically half-answered the trio of anchors' questions. When one of the anchors called her out for being less than enthusiastic, Delevingne admitted that she was tired and that she was having a hard time showing enthusiasm at the early-morning interview. Another anchor then told her to "go take a nap, maybe have a Red Bull," before abruptly ending the conversation with a bemused-looking Delevingne.

She spoke publicly about the incident for the first time Thursday, when she tweeted, "I am soooooo lucky and anyone who thinks I am unappreciative or ungrateful clearly doesn't know me. I work really really hard and love what I do, I don't feel like I need to apologize for being human #sorrynotsorry."
