My image has been stolen and being used on Facebook diet ads for a company called Venus Factor. These ads are running throughout Facebook from more sources that I can report and have removed. My coworkers, friends and family are seeing these ads pop up. The company won’t help me on Facebook and told me to email them more, I already emailed them twice. So let’s send them some email!
Tell them why we won’t stand to have our image stolen for the profit of diet companies.
Fatties roll out!
This is so disgusting. Please email this company.
This is disgusting and beyond wrong. Send some emails, make sure they hear that we WILL NOT tolerate this kind of behavior!
Companies ARE NOT allowed to use images of fat people without their consent FOR ANY REASON. THIS IS WRONG, AND THEY MUST BE TOLD SO.
I have just warned these assholes that the fatties of Tumblr are about to descend like a pack of rabid, fatassed wolves. DO NOT PROVE ME WRONG.
These people already profit from the pain and insecurity of people who should not be ashamed. They do not get to use other people’s photos and bodies to do this without explicit permission.
For those who have a hard time figuring out what to say, here’s what I sent; feel free to borrow bits, pieces, or the whole damn thing to help you craft your email to this gross-ass company.
Your cowardly refusal to take responsibility for your affiliates’ use of stolen photos to hawk your product is utterly inexcusable. The fact that it happened, is bad enough, but your repeated attempts to weasel out of taking action and giving Rachel the runaround (http://rachelecateyes.tumblr.com/post/78983486349/my-image-has-been-stolen-and-being-used-on) is even worse. You shouldn’t need to hear the specific words of “These are affecting my personal and professional life etc.” before you’ll (finally, grudgingly, slowly) take action. The words “Your product is being marketed using my images, without my consent or foreknowledge” should be enough - and WOULD be enough, for any ethical company. Your behavior in this matter has been incredibly unprofessional and inappropriate.And, of course, the fact that it’s become this much of an issue, and your ridiculous mishandling of the situation, makes me wonder how many other people are out there being used by your product and your affiliates in this degrading, shameful way without their consent?How DARE you - and your affiliates, since you seem inclined to try to shove responsibility off onto them for all of this - use the lives and bodies of people without their consent, to market a product whose message is in essence “See this person? Buy our product to avoid looking like them!” It is demeaning, it is disgusting, and no human being deserves to be maliciously held up as a scare tactic to shame other people into buying a product, without even being consulted on the use of their images in such a fashion.Remove Rachel’s image from your marketing, and/or remove any affiliate from your marketing scheme who continues to use her photos, and make it entirely clear to your affiliates and all marketing associates that you will not tolerate image theft and abuse of people’s personal images in any marketing capacity. This is unacceptable, and I look forward to seeing you take public, concrete steps to rectify the situation.Thank you,Jadelyn
Reblogging for the sample letter.
I bet you watched this video thinking it was a normal home-video, right? WRONG. 8 in 10 people who watch this video will not notice the girl in the blue shirt. The reason for this is because she is a ghost. She died in 2004, and she was murdered by her sister. If you don’t reblog this video within the next 30 minutes, at 2:37 AM, she will be looming over your bed, ready to kill you. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. SHE WILL KILL YOU. Reblog, and you will be guaranteed safety. Please, reblog this too, so no one else will be killed. Melissa Cruez saw this on her dash, but did not reblog. Her mother found her, stabbed 24 times in her bedroom the next morning. Want to be the next Melissa? THEN DON’T REBLOG THIS! SCROLL PAST IT JUST LIKE SHE DID! YOU’LL BE DEAD, TOO!
Please, reblog this, and stay safe. Do not RISK it. You will DIE!!!!!
