Orange Is the New Black actress Ruby Rose has called out The Untitled Magazine for publishing an interview with her that includes allegedly “unapproved” photos of her partially nude, photos she claims they also sold to other publications for use.
As their website explains, the September 2015 “Girl Power” issue of The Untitled Magazine features “some of the most inspirational women on the radar today across the arenas of fashion, film, music, art, business, politics, tech and sports.” In it, Rose is featured along with Charli XCX, Naomie Harris, Sophie Turner, Marina & The Diamonds, Lizzy Caplan, Carly Rae Jepsen,and others. But in an Instagram post, Rose says her interview was done eight months ago, and makes “no sense” now.
The nude-ish photos in question do not appear to be on Untitled website right now, though according to Rose, they are in the hard copy of the issue. As she explained on Facebook, she originally posted the the uncensored image seen above as a “Free the Nipple” photo herself a few days ago, before realizing which shoot the photo had come from.
The images in question were taken by Dani Brubaker (who posted one on Instagram yesterday) and styled by Kelly Brown.
As Rose has pointed out, Untitled is definitely using this hubbub to their advantage.
She’s spent some of Tuesday sparring with their social media person on Twitter about it.
She’s also complimented other publications’ coverage of the incident.
The Untitled Magazine’s Editor in Chief Indira Cesarine does not appear to have commented on the issue, though the publication did celebrate the “Girl Power” issue last week with a party.
