The cranky Cannes security guard strikes again.

The same female staffer who made headlines for rushing Kelly Rowland and Massiel Taveras off the red carPet also clashed with K-pop star Yoona.

A video of the interaction went viral on X over the weekend, showing the singer, https://cdn.thefoxposts.com/vimedia/2024/05/28/22ede8a5a937719d7444458cace6580f.webp, climbing the steps in a pink Monique Lhuillier gown before turning around to pose and wave to fans — only to find the guard’s arm blocking her.

The staffer stopped Yoona and ushered her away.

While the interaction did not take a heated turn, the Girls’ Generation member did look visibly frustrated as she followed instructions and walked off.

“You could tell Yoona’s pissed but she handled it with grace and class,” one social media user wrote, with another praising the actress for maintaining her “kind smile.”

A third fan posted a picture of Yoona’s dress, noting, “This [would] be a nice pic if not for that damn arm.”

When the same happened to Rowland last week, the former Destiny’s Child member made headlines for scolding the usher ahead of the “Marcello Mio” premiere.

The singer, 43, teared up recalling the interaction on Thursday.

“That woman knows what happened. I know what happened,” Rowland told AP News. “I have a boundary, and I stand by those boundaries.

“There were other women that attended that carpet who did not quite look like me and they didn’t get scolded, or pushed off, or told to get off,” she continued.

Dominican actress Massiel Taveras had a similar experience with the same woman and was caught on camera shoving her.

However, the unidentified staffer has been defended by one of her colleagues via the Daily Mail.

“She was an usher working under a lot of pressure to keep people on the carpet moving, so as to stop crowds building up,” the unnamed co-worker told the outlet.

“There was no pushing or shoving, or scolding. Security and safety are the priorities, along with keeping to strict timetables set according to contracts — even the celebrities have to stick to the rules.”
