What would you do if you suddenly found a picture of yourself being used to promote dramatic weight loss… and you hadn’t given consent?
That’s the position singer/song writer/vlogger Meghan Tonjes found herself in recently when she woke up one morning and received a Facebook message from one of her YouTube subscribers asking her about an advertisement Tonjes had ‘appeared in’.
The subscriber had attached the image of the advertisement which featured a photograph of Meghan and included an entire story about the miraculous weight loss she had undergone with the help of a specific weight loss clinic in Georgia, US.
But the thing was… Tonjes had never heard of this clinic, let alone agreed to feature in their ads.
Not long after this information had come to her attention she made a vlog and uploaded it to her YouTube Channel informing her viewers of just how angry she was.
“I am shaking right now, I’m so furious,” Tonjes said in her opening line.
