Uh, did you even watch the video? Skimping out on a $7 million hotel bill does in fact appear to be something you use diplomatic immunity for.

Actually, subby, it is now. According to the Vienna Convention, she can be neither prosecuted nor sued.

Maybe we need to re-think this...

You SKIMP ON a hotel by going to the Motel 6.

You SKIP OUT of(or more likely, on) a hotel bill by leaving without paying.

This type of stuff happens with diplomats and their families more than you would think. You would think that people would stop extending credit to people that they know can claim diplomatic immunity to avoid paying, or at least stop extending it to known deadbeats like her.

Agreed. I can't be the only person who instantly closes them. I can read a news story a lot quicker than the video can load and play.

Incidentally, this is also why, despite the fact that I jaywalk probably hundreds of times in an average month, I will avoid cars with diplomatic plates like the plague. Because while if an ordinary Frenchman runs me over in the crosswalk he'll get sent down to work on the galleys (well not really, but prison ain't fun), the worst thing that can happen to someone with DI is that they're declared Persona non Grata and are sent back to whatever dump of a country they came from to work a desk job until they retire. Some punishment, that.

The big problem for me is that I do a lot of Farking on my phone when I am traveling, and video links either don't play or I have to get my headphones to listen in public. Every video news story should also have text of the story.

So, do expensive French hotels not require a major credit card or any sort of deposit up front?

/ if not, I'm guessing they'll start doing that for diplomats from now on

When I working banquets & catering, I got to wait on Saudi/Jordanian royalty. They were one of the best reasons to get out of banquets & catering.

One night when I was working with room service, I get a phone call from a sheik right after the last chef went home. He wants a saddle of gazelle ASAP. I told him we were out of buns.

Saudis have no sense of humor.

If she is known to do this, why hasn't her diplomatic immunity been revoked by the various countries she likes to frequent.

I would think that before a hotel would let anyone rent out an entire floor, they'd want some money up front.

Known rich people can just cruise through on people's knowledge that they are rich and their own aggressive sense of entitlement (and few feel more entitled than Saudi royalty). That said, I wouldn't let this grifter and her traveling circus in the door of any hotel I owned, given her track record. She's an appalling credit risk, and she'd likely inconvenience and piss off the other guests.

Why do we even have "diplomatic immunity" on certain things to start with? Do the countries of the world really think it's OK for their diplomats to go to another country and break certain laws of theirs?

"Diplomatic immunity" isn't a license to do whatever you want. It's mainly so countries couldn't go arrest each others diplomats and try to hold them for a bargaining chip or squeeze them for information.

Most diplomats do try to obey the laws of the host country as they know what they do is a refection on their home country. If a diplomat does something serious, either the diplomat's country will waive immunity or have them come home. Countries don't want international incidents.

a saudi c*nt walks out without paying? wow, i'm so surprised. when you don't have to work for anything, you don't value anything.

its obvious she's never had to work for anything in her life. well, maybe blowjobs, but outside of that, everything has been handed to her on a silver platter. one the perks of living in a nation of huge oil reserves that the vast majority of citizens never get the benefit of.

aren't blue bloods great!
