WE WILL ROCK YOU ... A SHOCK FOR BRIAN
BRIAN MAY has fired back at a photographer who got him temporarily suspended from social media site Instagram for violating copyright… even though the photo was of him! The Queen guitarist expressed his disgust (or should that be dis-May!) in a lengthy rant on the site once his account was up-and-running again. “I’m usually very careful to credit anyone whose photos I post but in this case I must have forgotten,” explained the 70-year-old. “So rather than write to me this person,
Barbara Kremer is her name, reported me and they not only took the picture down but disabled my account.”
He then had a go at the photographer for complaining about him using the uncredited snap while she has been profiting from him without his consent: “You not only took my picture and are evidently exploiting my image and making money off me but you actually stop me using a picture of myself!” Quite.
