Once upon a time, Courtney Love went to France, where taxi drivers are protesting Uber. On Instagram, she documented an encounter, during which she said she was held hostage for over two hours. This is her story:

Wrote Love: “scariest day of my life, ambushed at the airport in Paris by taxi drivers on strike against @uber got taken hostage and our car was destroyed.”

She explained further (but not very much further) in a tweet directed at Kanye West, whom she referred to as “dude” and a followup:

She posted video from inside the car:

“how on earth are these people allowed to do this? the first car was destroyed, all tires slashed and beat with bats, these guys trying to open the doors and the cops are doing nothing?? French Taliban? civil reform needed in France?? I want to go home”

She called on France’s President François Hollande to get his ass to the airport:

Then came a miracle, but who knows how:

And then, she experienced the victory that came from not dying:

“we got out after being held hostage for an hour thanks to these two guys. I’m scared out of my wits. Mr. François Hollande president or libertine? I can’t believe this really just happened. love French people but your government blows #happytobealive #parisuberstrike wtf??”

And she lived happily ever after, at least for now.
