Axl Rose is not happy about some of the fat memes that have been made with his photo and he wants them removed. His lawyers have sent a cease-and-desist to Google, insisting that all “fat” memes and photos of him be taken down. His real issue is the photo below taken at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg in 2010. He’s claiming ownership and copyright.
Although the photo belongs to Free Press and the photographer who took it, technically it is the property of Axl Rose because all photographers are required to sign an agreement before the show.
Who doesn’t want all bad photos of themselves removed from the internet?
