In response to another fan, Halle explained that she told the artist’s team that she didn’t want them to use her image, which was ignored.
He had his people call me and I said NO. I didn’t like that image of slime on my face associated with his music. And she chose to do it anyway! You realize…that’s disrespect. Is not beautiful!”

The image in question comes from Getty Images, so the actress has no rights to it. A third user commented on this on Berry’s post. “Though I understand your point. That photo is owned by Getty Images. So I’m sure he got permission. And paid the fee. Why are you angry?”
The actress then responded: “Because he asked me and I said NO, that’s why. Why ask me if you’re going to do what you want to do!? To me it was a ‘fuck you’. It’s not cool. Understand?”
“It’s a matter of principle and integrity. I’m so happy that so many of you understand that,” the actress said in response to another comment.
