One of the Met Gala special appearances of the night was… a cockroach? See how this critter stole the show!

Celebrities weren’t the only ones to walk the iconic red carpet at this year’s, Met Gala. A cockroach made headlines after photographers videotaped and photographed the critter running along the famous Met Gala steps.

Check out this TikTok from user @thecut that shows the pandemonium that ensued after the cockroach- the so-called “final guest” to arrive- was seen running all over the Met Gala steps.

In the video, a photographer can be seen snapping pics of the cockroach as others cheer, scream “Get a photo,” and laugh. He even pretends to squash the critter at one point but it manages to escape and continue on its journey up the famous Met Gala steps.
