LILY Collins has hit out at vandals after a poster for her Netflix show Emily in Paris was given a brutal graffiti makeover.

Over the weekend, the 32-year-old actor captioned an Instagram video of the Netflix billboard, on which her face is scribbled over with red paint.

“I can’t say I love the new look, Em. But A for effort,” the caption read, while her husband can be seen walking next to the poster before jokingly running away in terror.

The British-American star also posed next to the poster in a separate picture. 

“She’s a class act everyone,” wrote Ashley Park, who portrays singer Mindy Chen in the series, while Kevin Dias, who plays musician Benoît, added a chain of cry-laughing emojis.

Despite the show becoming one of Netflix’s biggest hits, Emily in Paris was widely scrutinised by critics who accused the series of representing “the worst American white girls abroad”.

The show follows American marketing executive Emily Cooper, played by Collins, as she lands her dream job in the French capital.

It was also slammed by the French media for perpetuating negative stereotypes of Parisians and French people in general.

Darren Star, the show’s creator – formerly of Sex and the City – previously defended the first series, saying he was “not sorry for looking at Paris through a glamorous lens”.

The popular series, which premiered back in October 2020, returned to our screens in December.

Many have already binge-watched all ten episodes when Gerard managed to cut his finger off while popping open a champagne bottle.
