A male model naked in Times Square? Normally, we’d say count us in. But Krit McClean’s latest birthday suit shenanigans are a little too bizarre for our taste.
After gracing the runways of high-end designers such as Versace, Ralph Lauren Purple Label and Dolce and Gabbana, the 21-year-old model chose to lend his bare-butted figure to the red bleachers of the TKTS booth in the middle of Times Square.
Several chaotic outbursts ensued from McClean during the hourlong Magic Mike-esque display. The Bangkok-born model would scream, “Donal Trump, where the f–k are you?”
The Ford model would continue to yell, “I love fashion! It’s taught me so much!” And at that point, we were wondering exactly what that was.
After constantly refuting the security guards orders to redress, the Manhattanite jumped from the top bleacher just as police had cornered the naked model. Just missing the inflated airbag set in place to break his fall, McClean suffered a broken arm.
“He looks like he had a total breakdown,” a friend of McClean’s told the New York Post, “I don’t know if it was a super amount of insane drugs or if he lost his mind somehow.”
It would appear only fitting that his father, Vincent McClean, is a former New York representative at the UN Office of Drugs and Crime…
After finally securing the naked bandit, McClean was taken to Bellevue Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. WWD reports the male model remains at the hospital in the wake of his crazed antics.
Furthermore, WWD received no comment from Ford models on McClean’s future with the agency. Meanwhile, McClean lists Model Management in Milan and Mannequin Studio in Asia as his agencies abroad.
For now, it appears family, friends and Manhattan police are simply trying to uncover the factors that catalyzed this Times Square tantrum.
