Billie Eilish Obliterates Nylon For Printing Fake Shirtless Pic Of Her Without Permission

Billie Eilish has rinsed the German branch of Nylon magazine for seemingly digitally altering a photo of her and publishing it as their cover without her consent.

After the mag posted the cover image to their Instagram account, Eilish left a savage comment which quickly went viral thanks to her fiercely loyal fanbase.

In the comment, the singer points out that the mag not only didn’t ask for her permission to use her as their next cover, but said that it’s not even a real pic of her which means it must’ve been digitally altered in some way.

“what the fuck is this shit.
1. i was never approached by nylon about this piece whatsoever. i did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team.
2. this is not even a real picture of me.
i had absolutely no creative input.
3. youre gonna make a picture of me shirtless?? thats not real?? at 17? and make it the cover???? even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me… i did not consent in any way.
booooooooooo to you”

Like clockwork, her fans followed her lead by leaving scathing comments directed at the magazine, demanding that they immediately delete the post and apologise to the 17-year-old singer for using her image (or a fake image, rather) without her consent.

I doubt that they will give in to the pressure of the screaming fans but even if they do, there’s no way for them to remove the heinous magazine issue from shelves as it’s probably already been printed and shipped off to distributors in its native Germany.

Yikes, what a mess.

The mag later edited the caption to include the following apology to Billie and her fans:

For this cover, it was never our intention to create a look that is confusing or insulting to Billie Eilish. It was only ever our intention to honor Billies impact and her work by creating this avatar which is part of a cover series highlighting the power of digital prodigy artists. This avatar is a piece of 3D artwork created in dedication to her achievements and the positive effect she has had on millions around the globe – including us.
