On Instagram today, Orange is the New Black star Ruby Rose called out The Untitled Magazine for publishing unapproved images of her with exposed nipples.
She posted this image on Instagram, which stated that the images were shot 8 months ago, and that she did not approve them for them to be published by the magazine.
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.
Rose’s description of what happened is slightly confusing. From what we can gather, Rose did a shoot for the magazine, in which she agreed to wear a slightly transparent shirt – but the published images showed far more nip than she agreed to.
However, her fans are baffled, because she posted the uncensored image on her Instagram days earlier, with a positive, #FreeTheNipple caption. On Facebook, she had this response:
The image appears to be part of a series for the ‘Girl Power’ issue of the magazine. While Rose says above that she ‘assumed it was taken by a male photographer she knows and works with a lot’, by looking at credited images on Instagram (including the one below), it appears that the images were actually photographed by female photographer Dani Brubaker and styled by Kelly Brown.
We have reached out to Rose’s management for a statement on the matter.
