What Would You Do,

if somebody stole your face?

 an interesting question, and one which @meandadri had to answer, Driely Meanda is a 22-year-old woman from Sao Paolo, Brazil, she recently learned that a photo of her face is being printed on women’s clothes sold in Asia, Meanda, whose popular Instagram account has over 300,000 followers, is used to seeing photos of herself circulating online, but she never imagined that someone would go as far as to take one of her artistic selfies and use it as a printable design for commercial clothing, but a clothing company in Vietnam did, named Nhà Kho Liti, 

 the 22-year-old managed to get in touch with the Vietnamese company, but learned that it wasn’t directly responsible for her photo being printed on women’s clothes, it turns out that the garments are actually made in China and freely sold on various online marketplaces there, and Nhà Kho Liti just bought them in bulk and started reselling them in Vietnam, the clothing store apologized to the Brazilian Instagrammer and even offered to send her some free blouses and shirts with her face on them,

 they then posted a message acknowledging that she was the rightful owner of the print on their garments, as for Driely Meanda, she decided not to take legal action against the Vietnamese company, as it wasn’t directly responsible for using her photo, She hasn’t been able to identify the manufacturer of the shirt, “It’s strange to even imagine that in some remote place in Asia – which I will probably never know about, someone is wearing a shirt with my face on it and they don’t even know I exist … That’s haha,” Driely said in an Instagram story, well it is a story that will never effect me, I mean who would want or wear shirt with my face on it?
