Daisy May Cooper really was insistent on not backing down after she was refused a bent penis storyline in her upcoming memoir that she’s taken matters into her own hands and suspended her own Instagram in protest.
Only thing is, now she’s not allowed back in.
Oh, how there is so much to unpack here today, dear reader.
Yesterday Daisy had us all in giggles as she shared a clip she’d stealthily recorded during a meeting about her newly-announced memoir, Don’t Laugh, It Will Only Encourage Her.
She captioned the clip, which showed nothing but the table they were sitting at (but clearly recorded their conversation): ‘Me secretly trying to wind my publishers up in a meeting today. Dont care if they their a**holes in a twist about it as they’ve already paid me up upfront [sic].’
In the clip Daisy is heard saying it was a ‘dealbreaker’ if she wasn’t able to include a story about her ex-boyfriend, ‘who had a knob that bent massively to the left’.
She was then questioned over how important the anecdote was to merit inclusion and, as bosses suggested it wasn’t all that important, Daisy argued it was imperative, adding they ‘can go back to Penguin and say that that is actually a dealbreaker for me. Because I don’t want to be writing about stuff where I can’t talk about my ex-boyfriend’s knob’.
Hey, you can’t stifle creativity.
Later Daisy shared another video in which she was getting a right talking to over the clip from the meeting, with a man on the phone letting her know they’re ‘a serious group of people’.
We’re not sure what we like more out of the cheeky look to the camera as she promised she wouldn’t be sharing anything else online, or Daisy bursting into fits of giggles after telling the person on the phone if they couldn’t laugh at a bent penis she had no idea what they could laugh at.
It seems that things got even more heated in this dramatic tale of visionary vs publisher and then all of a sudden Daisy’s Instagram was nowhere to be seen.
This came after she flipped the bird on her Instagram and wrote on her Stories (before deleting her page): ‘Geting so much sh*t from my agent to take down the post but I refuse…f**k ‘free britney’…FREE DAISY AND HER EX’S BENT KNOB.’
It’s not like Daisy to keep us uninformed on the fight though, as through a video shared on her dad, Paul’s, account the star revealed that she decided to suspend her social media after a ‘back and forth’ with the team.
She later said in a video: ‘It’s been back and forth, back and forth with my agents this morning. I’ve threatened to come off Instagram and I did.
‘We’ve now currently asked if I can dedicate the book to my ex-boyfriend with the bent knob and we are just waiting to hear back from Penguin to see if that’s something that they can compromise on. So I’ll keep you posted.’
Luckily, ‘wonky knob’ will live on in Daisy’s memoir.
In a statement to Metro.co.uk, she further elaborated on the situation, saying she’s since made up with Penguin – however, Instagram won’t let her re-activate her account for 24 hours which is a whole other battle.
She said: ‘I threw a tantrum this morning and disabled my account on Instagram in protest. Penguin have offered to let me dedicate the book to my ex-boyfriend’s wonky knob. I have accepted and we have made up.
‘I also ended up having a heart-to-heart with the publisher (the man in the video) who confessed he was in a really bad mood yesterday. Mainly because his 5 year old son keeps hitting him with a stick and there is a cat on his street that keeps using his own cat’s cat flap and is intimidating him in his own house.
‘So I figure now he isn’t that bad and once Lockdown is over we are going for a pint.
‘Annoyingly Instagram won’t let me activate my account for 24 hours so I more pissed off with Instagram than I am with him.
‘And that’s all I wish to say to the press right now.’
Don’t Laugh, It Will Only Encourage Her is scheduled for release October 28.
