Be careful out there, Uber customers.

Like most of you, Courtney Loveturned to Uber for transportation this week. Unlike most of you, the singer and actress found herself in the middle of some pretty major anti-Uber protests in Paris, France on Thursday (June 25, 2015).

According to Love, picketers attacked the vehicle she was riding in and held her and her driver hostage for an hour. Here are her tweets and accompanying Instagram posts, should you choose to imagine yourself as the 50-year-old celebrity in France:

Here’s Love with her rescuers. We’re glad she’s OK.

A nationwide strike organized by thousands of French taxi drivers against UberPOP blocked roads to airports and train stations. Protestors have also been seen overturning vehicles and burning tires, causing police to use tear gas in some instances. France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has since ordered Paris police to issue a decree that bans UberPOP activity. [via Reuters]
