An executive in the luxury Hakkasan nightclub firm, Beth Bartolini, is in a spot of bother after calling Katy Perry BFF and nightlife whiz Markus Molinari a “tr - - ny” in a text message — then accidentally sending it to him.
Molinari posted the misdirected texts to Instagram, and received a wave of support, including messages from Hollywood pals Milla Jovovich, Lydia Hearst and Mia Moretti.
Meanwhile, his followers — including Bartolini’s fellow LA p.r. execs — created the hashtag #BethTheBully.
Molinari — who is a partner in Hakkasan rival the H.wood Group, which owns Bootsy Bellows, among others — had shared pictures of himself looking wistfully out of the window of the stately Althorp home (wearing a characteristically flamboyant outfit) in the UK, where he had recently attended a friend’s wedding.
It appears Bartolini attempted to send the shot to a friend, mocking Molinari by saying “Wtf is wrong with him” and “who opened the door to that tr - - ny,” presumably referring to the house in which he was posing.
Molinari posted the texts with the caption: “Normally I wouldn’t reply or give any attention to negativity people may say about me because it doesn’t effect my universe, but it being 🌈PRIDE MONTH and you being a longtime ‘friend’ I decided to post this because this type of bullying/ignorance/ and just out right mean girl behavior should NEVER be tolerated & should be brought to light.”
Molinari and reps for Hakkasan didn’t get back to us.
