We smell money! Kenyan TikToker urged to sue French company illegally using her image
A Kenyan woman on TikTok by the moniker Sunflower Child was tickled silly when she discovered a French company was using her image to sell their products.
In the TikTok video seen by Nairobi News on January 16, 2023, Sunflower recorded herself laughing at how her image was used as she wondered where the person in the advert was going. Her image was used for marketing a long, wavy headband wig.
“A random French brand on Amazon took my photo and photoshopped this wig on me. Heh, they did me dirty with this wig!” Sunflower captioned the video as she added audio that asked, “Who is this? And where is she going?”
