Viral photos of 17-year-old BelgianÂ Axelle Despiegelaere at the World Cup turned heads this week, eventually leading to a modeling contract with LâOreal:
But that didnât sit well with Business Insiderâs senior entertainment editor Aly Weisman, who took issue with one ofÂ Despiegelaereâs Facebook posts:
Weisman made it clear what she thought of it:
Hold up:Â Despiegelaere made what was clearly a joke about beating team USA and shared a photo of her posting after a successful hunt? Quelle horreur!
Well, Weisman didnât have to worry for long. Thanks to the efforts ofÂ the Outrage Brigade â of which WeismanÂ is a proud member âÂ Despiegelaere lost her contract:
But lest any of you think Weisman harbors any ill will towardÂ Despiegelaere, let her set the record straight:
Sheâs ânot anti-Axelle.â She just couldnât sit by and watch a beautiful young woman who happened to hunt big game get a modeling contract. But she totes wishesÂ Despiegelaere âthe best,â you guys!
