Not even Jared Leto dressed as a cat could capture the attention of the Met Gala 2023 as much as a cockroach that was not among the guests. Although it may seem completely crazy or something almost impossible, this insect which is related to the lack of hygiene, stole the spotlight of the night without wearing an elegant designer suit.

It all happened during the red carpet of the event that took place this Monday, May 1 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. While celebrities showed off their extravagant looks in honor of German designer Karl Lagerfeld, the cockroach appeared on the stairs of the venue, and photographers became its paparazzi.

A video of the moment captured by ‘Variety’ is circulating in social networks, where several people have expressed that it is a sign that not even the best places are spared from the plague.
