Singer Courtney Love directed some choice words in the direction of French authorities after getting caught in the middle of the heated protests against transport network Uber on Thursday.

French taxi drivers are furious that their livelihoods are being threatened by Uber, which provides members of the public with drivers via a mobile app. They have blocked roads to train stations and airports across the country.

Musician Love was attacked when she tried to make her way out of Charles de Gaulle airport in a private car and tweeted her experience to Kanye West, who was still back at the airport.

As level of hostility took Love by surprise.

Trepidation then turned to anger at the apparent absence of police.

She eventually escaped the angry taxi drivers on a motorcycle, albeit with some difficulty.

French taxi drivers are very unhappy about Uber. And they're not afraid to show it
