Belgian soccer fan turned model is no longer with L'Oreal after Facebook post
Beauty brand L'Oreal has cut ties with Axelle Despiegelaere, saying they only ever intended for a one-off photo shoot with the 17-year-old, who was spotted by the company when pictures of her cheering on Belgium at the World Cup hit the internet.
The announcement comes as the teenager faces criticism for posting a picture with a gazelle that had been killed during a big game hunting trip with a controversial caption.
Despiegelaere quickly took to Facebook to apologize and say she had not intended to offend anyone, but many took to L'Oreal's page to tell the company they were unhappy with the girl being used in a campaign.
Whether L'Oreal had ever intended to use her for anything more than a quick World Cup campaign is unknown, but for now it looks like her modeling career, much like the Belgium's World Cup run, has ended.
