New Delhi: Actress Sunny Leone, who has been accused of "stealing an artist's original work" without giving the due credit by Diet Sabya, has final spoke up about the issue. The Instagram account, which is popularly known for exposing designer rip-offs, summed up the actress' decision to auction it as "dirty." However, the post caught Sunny Leone's attention, who responded to the post immediately. Sunny Leone, while replying in the comment section, explained that she did "not claim to come up" with the original idea. The actress said she was given a photograph and that she merely "painted a piece of art that I saw and loved." Sunny, while speaking of the cause associated with the aforementioned piece of art, said, "It should be taken as a compliment as it was being donated to cancer patients for charity."
"Hello! Just to give you the correct information, I was given a photograph of this piece of art. I then decided to paint it. At no time did I claim to come up with the idea. I simply painted a piece of art that I saw and loved. It should be taken as a compliment as it was being donated to cancer patients for charity. Nothing more and nothing less. Sorry, you don't like the version that I choose to create while helping children in need. The painting was not about you or me. It was about trying to help. Best of luck. Keep creating." wrote Sunny.
The post shared by Diet Sabya featured a collage of the original painting created by an artist named Malika Favre juxtaposed with a picture of Sunny Leone standing next to her painting. "We are all for charity, but stealing an artist's original work - without credit - and auctioning it off for charity (as your own) is just dirty. Left: original by Malika Favre; right: w** by Sunny Leone." read the caption of the post.
Sunny is presently in Dubai, holidaying with her husband Daniel Weber. She even shared pictures of her vacation on social media where she was seen in bikini enjoying in water.
Sunny Leone posted an image with the artwork that she recreated earlier this month."Finally done! Giving this one for auction to help raise money for cancer. In loving memory of those who are no longer with us! With each brush stroke I thought of you and how much I will miss you. Love you." she captioned the post.
In the context of work, the actress will next be seen in a song in Motichoor Chaknachoor. The movie features Nawazuddin Siddiqui opposite Athiya Shetty.
