One board member was so enraged to find celebs messing around and smoking in the bathroom, according to Page Six, that 'the board member stormed right out and complained right away to Anna Wintour’s team.' Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, was the host of the gala.

Another board member was 'horrified to go into the ladies' loo' to find a 'host of celebs messing around,' including Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Kendall Jenner, and Kim Kardashian. Photos of the gala's famous guests lighting up in the bathrooms were shared on social media – often by the celebs themselves.
One Met donor told Page Six that the celebs should be fined, as their smoking may have damaged some of the museum's art.

'As a donor to the Met, I was so insulted to see all these "celebrities" smoking and taking selfies of themselves in the bathroom,' the donor said. 'Mostly, it’s disrespectful to the art collection which needs to be kept 100 percent smoke-free. I would honestly like to see these people fined by the city.'
Is the crime committed by these celebs really worthy of such opprobrium? You can make your own mind up about that. But we do have one suggestion. Following the wisdom of that old proverb, 'what's good for the goose is good for the gander', why not make the sneaky celebrity smokers pay the same fine that a normal visitor to the museum would pay for committing a similar indiscretion?
