Ruby Rose Calls For Boycott Of Magazine Over Unauthorized Photos
Entertainment| | By Sara Wilkins
Orange Is The New Black star Ruby Rose called for a boycott of The Untitled Magazine, after editors allegedly published “unauthorized” photos of her in the latest issue.
The model/actress took to Instagram on Monday and posted a picture of herself from a photoshoot in which she’s wearing a black sheer top with nothing underneath. She opted to block out her bare chest by showing the iPhone alert which reads, “Confirm deletion.”
Representatives from the magazine responded to Rose via Twitter, “We would never publish unapproved photos. we do not believe in exploitation!”
But Rose was not pleased with their response, taking to Instagram once again and writing, “‘We do not believe in exploitation’ however we have seen how upset you are at unapproved published images of you topless in our “girl power magazine” we figure while all the publicity around it .. Let’s post our “exclusive” “interview” “now!!” Hashtag absolute morons. I’m in shock at how cheap and petty this is. When a simple deletion and apology was all it should have been.”
In a new interview with The Huffington Post, The Untitled Magazine Editor-In-Chief Indira Cesarine stands by their decision to keep Rose as their cover girl, insisting the model’s publicity team authorized the use of the photos.
She said, “She knowingly and willingly did the photo shoot with the magazine at the consent of her PR team. As the Editor-in-Chief I did receive many emails (from the PR team) that they were happy with the photoshoot.”
Cesarine insisted Rose’s allegations of “exploitation” were unfounded, adding, “Dani Brubaker (photographer) and her agent are the only ones that can manage the rights to these photos and profit off of them. We had nothing to do with any attempt to sell these images whatsoever. For this shoot, I have a contract that Dani is managing the photos and has the rights to the photos. After she (Rose) has done full frontal nudity on her show, these images are tame compared to what she has done on television.”
