Kim Porter fans slammed Justin Bieber as "disrespectful" after he used a Kim Porter tribute to promote his clothing line.
The 25-year-old singer and entrepreneur angered fans by using a Kim Porter tribute by Sean "Puffy" Combs, aka Diddy, to promote his Drew clothing line on social media.
Justin used a photo that shows a young Diddy and Kim leaning against a vintage white Rolls Royce. He captioned the image:
"@drewhouse #diddyfordrewhouse @diddy KP YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED FOR THE STUNNING WOMAN YOU WERE INSIDE OUT.."
But fans were irate when they saw that the "Baby" singer including his Drew House clothing line in the post.
One irate user wrote:
"delete this sir he shared this picture in memory of his wife [sic] not for promo for the clothing line".
Another IG user wrote:
"hope this gets taken down. Disrespectful to re-use a photo Diddy used on a memorial post to promote a brand".
Justin half-apologized, saying he was not aware that Combs shared the photo in a tribute to Kim, but he loved the photo.
"God knows my heart, I know them and their family don't tell me I'm being disrespectful I have all the respect for both of them I didn't realize it was a photo of him mourning KP but I totally respect that but I also respect how sick of a photo that is!"
