Following her vagina-exploding performance in Orange is the New Black, model/actress/DJ Ruby Rose's social media following has the population of a small, highly dedicated planet... and hell hath no fury like an Instagram Queen scorned!
Ruby's latest bugbear is The Untitled Magazine, who allegedly slipped her nip without her consent. Ruby Rose posted a censored version of the offending nip pic below, making it clear that she is pro-Free The Nipple, provided that the woman in question has chosen to show the picture.
Here's the controversial image, posted to Ruby Rose's Instagram:
The text beneath outlines Ruby Rose's complaint with the allegedly unauthorized publication of the above photo, taken by Dani Brubaker for The Untitled Magazine. Rose said angrily:
I am pro "free the nipple" so when I was tagged in this photo by fans I wasn't sure where it came from but I assumed a BTS from a friends shoot or one where we had approved slightly transparency in an image.
Imagine my shock to find that @theuntitledmagazine decided to publish images of me after we explained we wouldn't be doing the shoot if I wasn't appropriately covered.
The difference with working with a friend and or choosing to use nudity for art / and someone taking the piss and exploiting you is two different things. Not only is this 8 months old..
The photos unapproved but they also sold photos to other publications. The interview made no sense 8 months on..
Please if you are a fan of mine boycott this issue. Or you are buying into greedy, exploitative propaganda. I have plenty of other shoots I'm proud of with professionals coming up its not needed in your collection.
My Aussie girlfriends never mince their words and it seems that Ruby Rose takes a similar approach to speaking her mind. Her rage continued with a second post captioned:
"We do not believe in exploitation" however we have seen how upset you are at unapproved published images of you topless in our "girl power magazine" we figure while all the publicity around it .. Let's post our "exclusive" "interview" "now!!"
Hashtag absolute morons. I'm in shock at how cheap and petty this is. When a simple deletion and apology was all it should have been.
Indira Cesarine, Untitled's Editor-in-Chief responded to Ruby Rose's allegations via HuffPost before addressing more directly the specific photo that aroused Ruby's rage:
[Ruby] knowingly and willingly did the photo shoot with the magazine at the consent of her PR team. As the Editor-in-Chief I did receive many emails [from the PR team] that they were happy with the photoshoot.
She’s fully dressed, though you can see a hint of a nipple through the shirt because of the flash of the camera. The magazine was never actually notified that there was a problem with these photos.
Dani Brubaker and her agent are the only ones that can manage the rights to these photos and profit off of them. We had nothing to do with any attempt to sell these images whatsoever. For this shoot, I have a contract that Dani is managing the photos and has the rights to the photos.
After she has done full frontal nudity on her show, these images are tame compared to what she has done on television.
