People Can't Stop Laughing At This Wig Site's Hilariously Bad Edit Of A Stolen Image

Oh my god.

This is Alexandria Washington from Houston. She goes by Alexandria Nicole as a beauty blogger on YouTube and Instagram.

Almost nine months ago, Washington posted this photo of herself on Instagram for one of her hair tutorials.

Earlier this week, Washington told BuzzFeed News, someone sent her a DM of her old photo being used on the website as a product ad for their Short Afro Curly Synthetic Wig. Not only does the real photo depict Washington with her natural hair, but she said they used her image without permission.

"I have been TRIED," Washington wrote in a follow-up Instagram post on Tuesday, adding some 😂😂 emojis.

Washington said she was also confused as to why they wanted to pursue an "investigation" first.

"I sent them the original picture and the ad," she explained. "I told them, 'Take it down, there should be no investigation.'"

"I busted out laughing," she told BuzzFeed News when she first saw the apparent photoshop. "WHAT IS THIS?"

Washington's followers were disappointed with the company, but couldn't help but laugh themselves.
