Zoella may have gotten over the scandal of her book being ghost-written, but her trouble doesn’t seem to be over yet!
The YouTube star has now been slammed by police over a new video she posted to her channel which sees her driving a car while being filmed.
It has been reported that in the clip, the star, who has almost seven million subscribers – many of them young girls – takes her eyes off the road six times.
Speaking to Now!, the Metropolitan Police blasted her actions, saying: “She could have killed someone. How can anyone who has their eyes off the road for that amount of time be in complete control of a vehicle?… Anyone could have run out in the middle of the road and she wouldn’t have seen them or had enough time to stop. This is completely irresponsible behaviour.”
A rep for Zoella, real name Zoe Suggs, has released a statement that reads: “Zoe is an extremely careful and contentious driver. At the time of filming she was in mostly stationary traffic. She takes road safety very seriously and would never do anything deliberately to counteract this.”
We’re sure Zoe is finding her new found fame is also coming with a certain responsibility for her young fans, and she’s still on a learning curve.
