World Cup fan loses modeling contract over hunting photo

A Belgian soccer fan landed a once-in-a-lifetime modeling contract with L’Oreal in while cheering at the World Cup in Brazil, but shortly after she posted a hunting photo to Facebook, the beauty company cut its ties.

L’Oreal approached Axelle Despiegelaere, 17, after photos of her cheering at the games went viral, according to Yahoo Sports.

Despiegelaere announced her new contract on Facebook, then later posted a photo of her besides a dead gazelle with a comment that incited outrage.

“Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It’s much more important than that..this was about 1 year ago…ready to hunt americans today haha (smiley),” Despiegelaere wrote on the photo.
