Cardi B has asked to get paid for the unauthorized use of her photo and name on a shirt, after she saw the shirt on a rack at Target.
The artiste saw her photo on a shirt at a shopping store called Target, with her name also printed on the shirt. Cardi B posted a video of it on social media, asking to be paid for the use of her photo and name on the shirt.
It is a normal thing for the identities of celebrities to be used on brands, as it is a good way of attracting customers. However, this should be done legally, which means that the celebrity should be paid for the use of their identity. This is because they are public figures, and can influence the level of sales of a brand.
Also, considering the fact that Cardi B just released her latest "UP" single which is currently the rave in the U.S; depicting her face on a product can really boost sales, because her fans will most likely buy these products. So it is very understandable that she wants to get paid for the use of her identity. See her post below.
Well, the designers of this shirt better start counting Cardi B's money, because she can sue them for the unauthorized use of her photo if she deems fit.
