Section Boyz Blast the 'Daily Mail' for Using Band Photo in Gang Violence Story
Published Jan 31, 2017As anyone who works in media knows all too well, it can be hard to find the right image to go with a news story online. But Australia's Daily Mail newspaper has taken things to the next level. Rather than use a stock photo or illustration to go with their story about gang violence, someone at the publication decided to use a press photo of the UK grime crew Section Boyz.
ABC Media Watch tweeted the above image, pointing out that the Daily Mail had misused a photo from the musical act for their story.
The paper has since updated its story with a different photo, though Section Boyz still took to Twitter to express their understandable disappointment with the company.
@DailyMailAU we are not happy with the way you have used our popular picture to slander another group that has nothing to do with us. FIX UP— SECTiON BOYZ (@SectionBoyz_) January 31, 2017
Thanks to FACT for the tip.
