Celebrities get a lot of free stuff. Expensive face creams. Rides on private airplanes. Luxury AirBnB stays.
In return, we expect that they give back. For example, give free publicity to rescue organizations doing necessary work to save animals.
Unfortunately, when Kendall Jenner posted an adorable picture of a baby deer earlier this week, she failed to do exactly that. She just posted the photograph without any tags or credit. Bella Hadid posted the same image in her Instagram stories, also without credit.
The photograph was originally taken by Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife, a rescue center in Buffalo, New York, that rehabilitates deer, and releases them back into the wild.
To be fair to the supermodels, they likely didn’t know that the photograph was attached to a rescue organization — they just thought it was cute.
The reason why Fuzzy Fawn called attention to the lack of accreditation was to raise awareness. “When I see one of my photos/videos reposted I always try and get that account to give credit, Why... because I am a volunteer, any exposure helps my cause that I put my heart and soul into 24/7!!” she wrote in an Instagram post responding to the matter.
Hey, if the controversy gains Fuzzy Fawn some followers, and perhaps even a few extra dollars, we think that’s a good thing. Last year, the organization rehabilitated 78 fawns at the cost of $500 each. That’s a total of $39,000! For Bambis!!!
