Model "fired" for being a hunter

L'Oreal: "Thou shalt not hunt."
  • Model's video went viral racking up over 2 million views on YouTube in days.  But L'Oreal suddenly decided they "no longer needed her services" when a photo came out that she enjoys hunting.
  • Naturally leftists and women's rights groups are silent.

The Belgian beauty hired by cosmetics giant L’Oreal Professionnel after photos of her cheering in the stands at a World Cup match went viral has deleted her Facebook page that featured a photo of herself posing with a gun and a slain Oryx gazelle.

L’Oreal Professionnel has also confirmed that the beauty, 17-year-old Axelle Despiegelaere, will not be continuing on with the company beyond a nearly 90-second hair tutorial video she has already filmed.

“She collaborated on a one-time basis (one-time, yeah, I believe that) for social media use in Belgium,” a L'Oreal Professionnel representative told ABC News today. “It was a one-time contract which has been completed reports ABC News.

“She was not a spokesperson.”
Photos of Despiegelaere’s cheering on her country during a World Cup match against Russia in Rio June 22 went viral after they were plastered around the world in newspapers and social media.

The blonde was decked out in red, black and yellow face paint -– the colors of Belgium’s flag -- wearing a matching hat with horns and waving pom-poms in the candid photos.
Two weeks later, on July 8, Despiegelaere announced on Facebook that she had signed a contract with L'Oreal.

"Feeling excited," she wrote at the time.

As the spotlight on Despiegelaere grew, so too did the spotlight grow on the photo she posted July 1 of herself with the dead gazelle. The photo was posted one day before her home team, Belgium, defeated Team USA 2-1 in the World Cup.

“Hunting is not a matter of life or death,” Despiegelaere wrote in the photo’s caption. “It’s much more important than that…this was about 1 year ago…ready to hunt Americans today haha.”
Despiegelaere has since deleted her Facebook page.

The representative for L'Oreal declined to comment on the photo today, saying only, “The photo was released privately and is not one of L’Oreal Professional’s.”

Despiegelaere’s hair tutorial video has already racked up over 2 million views on YouTube.

Hired and Fired in Days
L’Oreal Cosmetics couldn't wait to hire the 17-year-old Belgian beauty Axelle Despiegelaere after photos of her cheering in the stands at a World Cup match went viral.  But suddenly her services were no longer required when a Facebook photo was seen with her hunting.
It appears that equal rights for women does not exist when they enjoy hunting.

Now IF I were the head of a company that needed her services... I would hire her and play up her "outdoor" activities. I would imagine (after looking at a lot of female politicians & liberal women in the news) that make-up is a BIG expenditure... (so I see why L'oreal canned her)
