Beauty blogger Alexandria Nicole does hair and makeup tutorials on YouTube and Instagram, and she slays the natural hair game. Almost as much as Solange in her “Don’t Touch My Hair” music video, if you need some inspiration.
In fact, Kween Alexandria does such a good job, DressLily.com stole one of her Instagram photos and claimed it was one of their wigs they had for sale. As if the stolen photo wasn’t bad enough…
They actually advertised this photo as a “wig for sale” when in fact, it’s Alexandria’s actual hair. AKA NOT A WIG.
WTF, right? So Alexandria called them out and asked them to take the photo down, citing false advertising and theft. It’s technically not illegal to take photos from Instagram because they’re in the public domain, but it’s not exactly morally advisable either.
DressLily responded with, well…you’ll see.
…this awful Photoshop mess.
Twitter couldn’t deal and neither could we, but she’s getting a lot of support regarding the stolen image. DressLily on the other hand, not so much.
What do you think Alexandria should do about the stolen photo? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
