Chloe Fineman is being roasted online for her “cringe” interview with Stella McCartney, Aubrey Plaza and Madelyn Cline during Monday night’s Met Gala red carpet.
While many naysayers were already scolding Fineman for being a “horrible” interviewer, things got worse when she misnamed Plaza, calling her “Audrey” instead of “Aubrey.” Moments later, McCartney, who attended the stylish event with Plaza and Cline, slammed the “Saturday Night Live” star for not taking the interview “seriously.”
“I’ll be more serious,” Fineman replied with a laugh before carrying on with the awkward interview. While some defended the comedian on Twitter, noting that the “Audrey” name change was a bit, others were unamused, including McCartney, who’s facial expressions appeared to be quite telling.

Fineman, 34, was selected to host Vogue‘s red carpet livestream with fashion journalist Derek Blasberg and broadcaster La La Kent. The trio chatted with stars as they arrived at the annual fundraising gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
On social media, many questioned why Fineman was “even there” calling her out for “mocking the celebs” and being “unprepared” for the hosting gig.

Chloe Fineman & Derek Blasberg were some of the worst interviewers I’ve ever seen at an event…just so awkward, very unprepared..and not even holding the mic up to the guests either #MetGala

Chloe Fineman is embarrassing. They should have given this spot to Emma Chamberlain. She's always prepared and witty. https://t.co/GSq4ezSQG9

Meanwhile, Fineman’s fans defended her, pointing out that her trolling Plaza was “a joke,” urging others to “learn some common sense” and telling haters to “cut her a break.”
TikTok’s “culture critics” thought Chloe Fineman genuinely didn’t know Aubrey Plaza’s name

Favourite #MetGala2023 moment is when Chloe Fineman interviews Stella, Aubrey Slutburn and Madelyn. Forgets Aubrey's second name and people didn't get the joke and they thought she didn't know Aubrey and was chased from the red carpet after this interview😂😂

Chloe Fineman was called out by Stella Mccartney to take her job seriously! It’s about time! I was appalled how Chloe didn’t know many of the designers and just focused on the celebs! Please don’t bring her back next year! #MetGala2023
