Sunny Leone Slammed For ‘Copying Artists’ Original Work (Photo Credit: Instagram)
Sunny Leone is not going to go down lightly on online slamming. Instagram critic, Diet Sabya, who has quietly made a name for themselves for calling out celebrities for what they term is ‘copy’ and ‘plagiarism’ called out the actor once again for ‘copying artists’ original work -without credit- and auctioning it off for charity’. Sharing the two artworks one by the original artist and one by Leone, the post mentioned, "We are all for charity, but stealing an artists’ original work — without credit — and auctioning it off for charity (as your own) is just dirty. Left: original by @malikafavre; right: wtf by @sunnyleone #dietsabya #gandi #copy #art."
Explaining that a photograph of artwork was given to her with which she decided to show her show her appreciation by painting a similar copy of it to donate to cancer patients, Sunny, silenced the critic explaining
"Hello. Just to give you the correct information , I was given a photograph of this piece of art. I then decided to paint it! At no time did I claim to come up with the idea. I simply painted a piece of art that I saw and loved. It should be taken as a compliment as it was being donated to cancer patients for charity. Nothing more and nothing less. Sorry you don’t like the version that I choose to create while helping children in Need. The painting was not about you or I. It was about trying to help !!!! Best of luck !!!! Keep creating’’ she wrote.
Talking about calling out actors not for their ‘fashion-copy’ but for artworks, the same critic also lased out on creators of Saaho for copying Shilo Shiv Suleman’s artwork for their ‘Baby Won’t You Tell Me’ poster.
